Things to know before you get started.
7 Steps to A/C Repair
  1. 1. Keep information handy

    Write down the make and model of your central air conditioning unit. This information will help your A/C repair pro formulate a quicker repair plan.

  2. 2. Check online for referrals

    Look at current reviews from recent clients to find out more about several A/C repair companies or professionals to learn more about how satisfied they were with the work.

  3. 3. Get a few home evaluations

    The professionals can make suggestions about whether repairs are required or whether or not a new unit is needed.

  4. 4. Check using a list

    Get an itemized and detailed estimate for all repairs. Each central air conditioning repair and maintenance company should offer a free estimate for repairs or servicing.

  5. 5. Verify legalities

    Ensure that the company you choose is both licensed and insured. Ask if work is completed by a certified technician. Most states offer a heating and air conditioning repair and installation certification.

  6. 6. Get it in writing

    Ask about any guarantees or warranties offered on both parts and labor when repairs are completed. Understand what happens if the air conditioning unit breaks down again.

  7. 7. Provide help

    Ask your expert if there are any routine maintenance tasks you can do to help keep your air conditioner in tip-top shape.
