Why it is Important to Get an Estimate for Your AC Repairs

Estimates are important when you need to have your air conditioner repaired or replaced because you can ask questions and get answers.  You will get an estimate of what the job costs, but you can also get information that makes you have some peace of mind when hiring a company to do a job in your home.

Should I Replace or Repair?

Ask the HVAC technician that gives you an estimate if you need repairs or if a replacement is wiser.  You should get an answer about the status of your air conditioner that lets you know how much longer your A/C should last.

How Much Time Will the Job Take?

Most professionals will know how much time a job will take.  There may be things that make the job take a little longer, but they should give you a range of what it will take.  The more experience a technician has, the better the answer.

Do You Work on This Type of Air Conditioner Regularly?

Your HVAC technician should know how to fix the model of air conditioner you have.  They should have the proper tools and experience to get the job done right.  If they act like they don’t know much about the model you have, this may be a good sign to move on.

How Long Have You Been in Business?

You can also ask what experience they have.  Some HVAC professionals start their own business after years of working for other companies.  This will help you decide on the professional with the most experience.  It is important that the repairs or replacement services you need are done right the first time, so you don’t have to spend an excessive amount of money on another fix.

Can I Verify Your License?                

Getting credentials is important.  Don’t worry about how it makes them feel, because they shouldn’t have anything to hide.  A professional should be proud of the license they have and willing to show it off!
