How Trustworthy Is Your Air Conditioning Contractor?
When your home comfort system starts making weird and unfamiliar noises or suddenly stops working, what will you do? Who will you call- will it be your trusted Fresno air conditioning contractor?
Homes and businesses often rely on trustworthy HVAC contractors to address their heating and cooling service problems, especially when the need for comfort is urgent. If issues arise and your air conditioning stops working, is a trustworthy technician just a call away? Which number will you call?
Many people will either go for a company’s popularity, the number of years in service, or how affordable is the service charge. But this isn’t the only gauge to measure the trustworthiness of a service provider. There are many ways to check if you’ve found the right service agreement.
Choosing the Right Air Conditioning Contractor
There are many ways to check the credibility of an HVAC contractor but in this post, we will narrow it down to four.
Check the Better Business Bureau
The Better Business Bureau (BBB) will show you the consumer ratings of a company. Its website has a record of consumer complaints (if there are any) against the company you wish to hire. You can call the local BBB office with any inquiries you may have.
Estimates Are Explained In Person
A lot of factors need to be considered when it comes to installation of new ac system and service repairs or maintenance; therefore a good company won’t often provide estimates over the phone. Conditions like properly working fan motor, clean filters, or a perfectly working thermostat, among others, must be considered as well. You should be wary of contractors that give the lowest estimates without conducting an ocular inspection.
Identifies Urgent AC Service Jobs
An experienced technician will thoroughly assess your cooling system and will tell you the extent of the damage and which components need urgent repair or replacement. And a trustworthy technician can differentiate between an immediate emergency and a job that can be done at a later time. If the technician insists on doing both without a valid reason, this can be a red flag.

Simplified Explanation on Air Conditioner Problems
Saying that there is a problem with your cooling system versus taking the time to explain what the problem is while showing you where the damage is are two different things. So when the tech starts using jargon and would claim that the problem is too technical, then this may lead to a shady transaction. The technician must clearly explain the situation in plain English.
