When it comes to home improvement or repair, there are some projects you can comfortably tackle using a DIY approach, and others that you should really leave to the professionals. In our experience here at Air Assault Air Conditioning & Heating, anything involving your AC typically falls into the latter category, and we recommend hiring an experienced AC contractor to take care of the problem for you. However, we also understand that choosing a contractor can be a daunting prospect, so in this article, we’ll be going over some key qualities to look for.
- Licensing and Insurance- The first thing you should look for in an AC contractor is proper licensing. Trade licenses certify that the contractor in question has completed a certain number of training hours and met certain quality standards; this is an essential way for potential clients to gauge whether a contractor can deliver the results they need. You should also ask about the contractor’s insurance coverage–every contractor should carry comprehensive liability and workers’ compensation insurance in order to protect you in the event of any accidents on the job. We at Air Assault Air Conditioning & Heating are happy to provide this documentation upon request, and any reputable company should be prepared to do the same.
- Experience- The next thing to look for in an AC contractor is experience. While having the proper license is an important first step, the license alone isn’t enough to guarantee that you’ll get the best results. When comparing prospective contractors, ask about their level of experience in the field, and go with a team that has a solid number of years under their belt.
- References- Another thing that reputable AC contractors will be ready to provide is a list of references from past clients. We at Air Assault Air Conditioning & Heating are proud of our work and stand behind our results, so we are happy to give you a list of contacts from our previous clients. Speaking with a company’s past clients is a great way to get first-hand accounts of their experience and level of satisfaction, and we are confident that our work has been and continues to be more than satisfactory.
