Dealing with an AC repair can be one of the most aggravating things to encounter as a homeowner. Not only does it mean you have a non-working air conditioner and must be without a comfortable home for an undetermined amount of time, but you need to find time to get it repaired. All Columbus AC repair companies aren’t created equally either, so be sure to ask the right questions the next time you need an AC repair.
Do You Have Local References?
Heating and air conditioning equipment is a large investment and is critical to maintaining a comfortable home. That’s why it’s so important to hear from local Columbus consumers about their AC repair experiences. Those same people have been where you are and chose Stevenson Service Experts for a reason. While it can feel a bit strange chatting with someone you don’t know about AC repair, they can give you an true, unbiased opinion of the services they had completed.
Can You Provide a Detailed, Written Estimate?
It’s one thing to talk about AC repair costs on the phone, and quite another having a thorough outline of what is to be completed and the cost accompanying with the work and parts included. Not only does it protect you as the consumer, but it also ensures that the AC contractor is doing everything they’re supposed to. Having something to keep both parties on the same page can be great, especially if something unexpected comes up on the day of your AC repair.
Are You Licensed, Bonded, and Insured?
When Stevenson Service Experts takes calls from probable customers asking these types of questions, we’re thrilled that our customers are doing such a deep background check. Verifying that we’re licensed (permitted to perform the work in Columbus), bonded (financially backed by a bonding company in the result of a claim being filed), and insured (to prevent you from being held liable should a worker be hurt) is what separates the true pros from the more shady air conditioning companies out there. A good AC repair company is more than willing to produce proof of all of these so that everyone can be on the same page.
Of course, these aren’t the only questions that need to be asked when it comes time for AC repair, but at Stevenson Service Experts, we feel confident in using these as a jumping off point.
