How do I Choose the Right AC Repair Company in Hillsborough?

April 03, 2015

Dealing with an AC repair can be one of the most aggravating things to encounter as a homeowner. Not only does it mean you have a non-working air conditioner and must go without a comfortable home for a period of time, but you must find time to get it fixed. All Hillsborough AC repair companies aren’t cut from the same cloth 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 large investment and is essential to keeping a comfortable home. That’s why it’s so important to hear from local Hillsborough residents about their AC repair experiences. Those same residents have been where you are and chose Fras-Air/General Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning for a reason. While it can feel a tad strange speaking with someone you don’t know about AC repair, they can give you an truthful, unbiased opinion of the services they had done.

Can You Provide a Detailed, Written Estimate?

It’s one thing to discuss 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 makes sure that the AC contractor is doing everything they’re supposed to. Having something to keep both parties in agreeance can be great, especially if something unexpected comes up on the day of your AC repair.

Are You Licensed, Bonded, and Insured?

When Fras-Air/General Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning receives calls from possible customers asking these types of questions, we’re ecstatic that our customers are doing such a thorough background check. Proving that we’re licensed (permitted to execute the work in Hillsborough), bonded (financially backed by a bonding company in the instance of a claim being filed), and insured (to keep you from being held liable should a worker be hurt) is what separates the true professionals from the more shady air conditioning companies out there. A great AC repair company is more than willing to show proof of all of these so that everyone can feel comfortable.

Of course, these aren’t the only questions that need to be asked when it comes time for AC repair, but at Fras-Air/General Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, we feel confident in using these as a starting place.
