Tips for Choosing a Reputable Contractor to Fix, Maintain or Install Your A/C Unit

3 Jan

The average high temperatures in Southwest Florida range in degrees from the 70’s to 90’s depending on the time of year. Of course, temperatures are on the higher end in summer months.

Most homes in Southwest Florida have some type of air conditioning unit to help them stay cool but air conditioning units do not last forever and do need maintenance and repairs over time.

Who do you call when your a/c unit is in need of repairs or routine maintenance is due?

Not all contractors are created equal. Choosing the wrong contractor can be a nightmare. So, how do you know when you have a reputable contractor on your list of companies you call when you need a product or service?

Use these guidelines when choosing a contractor to maintain, fix or install your a/c unit. The contractor you choose should:

  • Be licensed as this shows they went through the licensing process which includes knowledge testing and competency.
  • Own a stable company and has been in business for a number of years.
  • Have a professional appearance (their employees, truck and equipment should be organized and clean).
  • Be available so when you call them. Someone either answers the phone or calls you back in a timely manner.
  • Have a great reputation in the community so that you know they are trustworthy.
  • Work hard to provide excellent customer service.
  • Do honest repairs and will only recommend what is necessary.
  • Offer a comprehensive maintenance plan to keep your a/c unit running efficiently.
  • Have a nice website where you can learn more about their services, engage with their social media and leave feedback.

It is a great idea to have a relationship with a good contractor before your a/c unit needs repairs because then you won’t have to scramble and choose someone quickly.

Remember, regular air conditioning maintenance will help keep your a/c unit running at full capacity which will extend the life of your unit plus decrease electric bills.
