Having to deal with an AC repair can be one of the most annoying things to encounter as a homeowner. Not only does it mean you have a broken air conditioner and must be without a comfortable home for an unknown amount of time, but you must find time to get it back to working order. All Albany 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 big investment and is crucial to preserving a comfortable home. That’s why it’s so important to hear from local Albany citizens about their AC repair experiences. Those same consumers have been where you are and chose D.A. Bennett Service Experts for a reason. While it can feel a little awkward chatting with someone you don’t know about AC repair, they can provide you with an honest, unbiased opinion of the services they received.
Can You Provide a Detailed, Written Estimate?
It’s one thing to talk AC repair costs on the phone, and quite another getting a comprehensive outline of what is to be done 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 D.A. Bennett Service Experts takes calls from potential customers asking these types of questions, we’re ecstatic that our customers are doing such an in-depth background check. Verifying that we’re licensed (permitted to perform the work in Albany), bonded (financially backed by a bonding company in the result of a claim being filed), and insured (to avoid 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 great 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 D.A. Bennett Service Experts, we feel confident in using these as a foundation.
