  1. How long have you been in business? A company that has been around a long time with long-term employees is often a good one.
  2. Is your company insured? Any expert that works in your home should possess liability insurance to guard you in the case of accidental damage or injury.
  3. What kinds of licenses and certifications do your technicians have? A truly professional AC repair company will require their experts to be licensed, certified, and require ongoing education and training of their experts to keep them up-to-date with the latest trends and developments.
  4. Do you have any references you can provide? A reliable company that offers AC repair should have a list of references they’ll happily provide you. Check these references and figure out all the details about AC repairs the prospective company has done.
  5. Will you offer a written estimate? Make certain to get a written estimate so you can review all the details involved with your AC repair. And remember, the cheapest estimate isn’t automatically the best estimate. Your detailed estimates should help you whittle down companies you aren’t planning to work with, no matter how much less they are.
  6. Do your technicians have experience working on my system? You may want to ensure the company you choose has experience working on your specific equipment, especially if it has any less-common features.
  7. Will my AC repairs be warrantied? Work supported by a warranty is a no-brainer. If a company isn’t ok standing behind their work, you should move on.
