What You Need to Ask Before Hiring an AC Repair Company

At Tri City Fuel & Heating Co., Inc., we know that selecting a company you can count on to complete AC repair in West Columbia is important. We know how important it is to find a dependable company that does great work. We can help. Getting the answers to these questions can help you make a confident, informed decision.

  1. How long have you been in business? An experienced company with long-term employees is often a good one.
  2. Is your company insured? Any pro that works in your home should have liability insurance to guard you in the case of accidental damage or injury.
  3. What kinds of licenses and certifications do your technicians carry? 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 industry trends and developments.
  4. Do you have any references you can offer? A dependable company that can do AC repair should have a number of references they’ll happily share with you. Check these references and learn all the details about AC repairs the prospective company has performed.
  5. Will you offer a written estimate? Be sure to get a written estimate so you can look at 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 wanting to work with, no matter how much less they are.
  6. Do your technicians have experience working on my system? You may want to make sure the company you go with has experience working on your specific equipment, especially if it has 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 ok standing behind their work, maybe you should move on.
