What You Need to Ask Before Hiring an AC Repair Company

At Central Air Inc, we know that picking a company you can count on to complete AC repair in Portland Metro is important. We know how important it is to find a reliable company that does good work. We can help. Getting the answers to these questions can help you make a confident, informed decision.

  1. How long have you been in business? A company that has been around a long time with long-term employees is often a good one.
  2. Is your company insured? Any pro that works in your home should possess liability insurance to cover you in the case of accidental damage or injury.
  3. What kinds of licenses and certifications do your technicians carry? A truly professional AC repair company will require their professionals to be licensed, certified, and require ongoing education and training of their technicians to keep them up-to-date with the latest trends and developments.
  4. Do you have any references you can provide? A dependable company that can do AC repair should have a variety of references they’ll readily share with you. Look at these references and figure out all the details about AC repairs the prospective company has completed.
  5. Will you provide a written estimate? Be sure to get a written estimate so you can look at all the particulars involved with your AC repair. And remember, the cheapest estimate isn’t automatically the best estimate. Your detailed estimates should help you filter out companies you aren’t wanting to work with, no matter how much less they are.
  6. Do your technicians have experience working on my system? You may want to ensure the company you go with has experience working on your specific equipment, especially if it has any less-common features.
  7. Will my AC repairs be warrantied? Work that has a warranty is a no-brainer. If a company isn’t ok standing behind their work, you should probably move on.
