Four Questions to Ask Prior to Your Next AC Repair

This entry was posted in Air Conditioning on by .

Want to ensure you get the right HVAC provider performing the right service? Here are four questions to ask:

1. Should I repair or replace?

In some situations, repairing your air conditioning unit isn’t enough to have it properly functioning. There are a few signs that indicate you may need to replace your AC.

  • Your air conditioning system is 10 years or older.
  • You’re paying a lot of money for constant repairs.
  • Repairing your AC unit will cost more than purchasing a new unit.

If you’re unsure if you need a replacement, have a licensed HVAC professional inspect the unit. A trustworthy, certified technician will only propose replacing it when it’s really required.

2. Do You Offer a Free Quote?

No matter if you require maintenance, repair, or replacement, professional HVAC contractors always provide pricing upfront. A legitimate contractor will offer a concise, accurate, and justifiable quote to make a service call, perform repairs, or install a new system.

3. What About Regular Maintenance Compared to Repair Expenses?

Regularly scheduled maintenance for your air conditioning system ensures you’ll lessen the need for costly repairs. Scheduling twice-yearly inspections by Cool Blew’s technicians to check, clean, and perform necessary repairs costs significantly less than costly, unexpected repairs when systems are not maintained. Regular maintenance also helps to decrease your monthly energy bills.

4. Are you Insured and Bonded?

It’s always important to do your due diligence when it involves any company or technician who will be working in your home. Not all HVAC companies are insured and bonded, and some are fly-by-night operations that disappear once you’ve used their services. Take the time to do your homework and ensure that the business you’re considering is committed to 100% customer satisfaction.
