One of the least exciting things to put on the list of ‘must do’s’ as the hot summer months approach is finding an air conditioning company to install a new AC unit. But, nothing is worse than sitting in a hot house with a broken ac unit. As such, it is vitally important not only for your comfort, but also your health to make a good decision to retain the services of a professional and affordable Air Conditioning company that has the experience and customer service excellence for your air conditioning installation to get your home or office back to being cool while it is hot outside.
Here are four questions to ask before you hire for an air conditioning installation at your Scottsdale residence or office:
AC Installation Question # 1: Are they A+ Rated by the BBB?
One of the best ways to determine if an air conditioning company is reliable, trustworthy and professional when installing AC Units is to check them out with the Better Business Bureau. Each major metropolitan city has a branch of the BBB that protects the best interest of the consumer segment by rating and reviewing the business practices of local companies; especially contractors who service AC units. Any company that is A+ rated has been reviewed several times in a positive manner by the BBB and other consumer agencies that put the best interest of their customers above their own money making opportunities.
AC Installation Question # 2: Are They Are Experienced In Installing Your Specific Type of AC Unit?
The next tip we can offer is to ensure any HVAC company you hire is experienced in working with the specific style of AC unit you need and your particular style of home or office building. Contrary to popular belief, not all AC units and homes are built identically. One way you can determine this is to take time to interview any air conditioning company and ask them about previous work history with your particular type of home or office building.
AC Installation Question # 3: Do They Offer Financing?
Another important tip is to make sure any HVAC company you hire to install an AC unit has the ability to offer great financing options. The truth is that most people in America don’t have the disposable income or capital to pay for a brand new AC unit with cash on hand. Several reliable AC repair and installation professionals will offer their customers affordable financing, without outrageous interest rates. Check with any company about this option prior to hiring them.
AC Installation Question # 4: Why Am I Feeling Pressure To Purchase Upgrades?
The last tip we can offer about hiring any AC repair and installation expert is to make sure they don’t pressure you into buying something you don’t need. There are several companies that pay their employees on commission. And you’ll easily tell if you’re dealing with one of these companies if the sales rep tries to upsell you equipment that most likely your house doesn’t need to have. As any company you interview whether their sales people are commission based. The best AC service and installation companies pay their employees by the hour or salary and are proud to disclose this information to you, ensuring you get a great deal on buying an air conditioning unit as the summer heat begins to arrive.
Hiring to have a new air conditioning installation at your home is an important decision and an investment. Be sure you’re setting yourself up for the best experience possible by asking a few key questions before you say yes.
