  1. How long have you been in business? An experienced company with long-term employees is typically a good one.
  2. Is your company insured? Any professional that works in your home should carry liability insurance to cover you in the case of accidental damage or injury.
  3. What kinds of licenses and certifications do your technicians hold? A truly professional AC repair company will require their professionals to be licensed, certified, and require ongoing education and training of their technicians to keep them up-to-date with current trends and developments.
  4. Do you have any references you can offer? A trustworthy company that offers AC repair should have a list of references they’ll happily provide you. Look at these references and learn all the details about AC repairs the prospective company has completed.
  5. Will you give a written estimate? Make sure to get a written estimate so you can review all the facts involved with your AC repair. And remember, the cheapest estimate isn’t necessarily the best estimate. Your detailed estimates should help you get rid of companies you aren’t interested in working with, no matter how cheap they are.
  6. Do your technicians have experience working on my system? You may want to be sure the company you go with has experience working on your brand of equipment, especially if it contains any less-common features.
  7. Will my AC repairs be warrantied? Work that has a warranty is a no-brainer. If a company isn’t fine with standing behind their work, maybe you should move on.
