This summer has been the hottest on Arizona record. Unfortunately, this has left many locals seeking air conditioning repair and maintenance services to keep their systems in tip-top shape. Unfortunately, finding a trustworthy contractor isn’t always easy. If you are in need of service for your system, there are a few things to keep in mind when seeking out the best Phoenix air conditioning companies. Be sure to consider each carefully. After all, choosing the wrong contractor could cause you to pay for costly products and services that you don’t need, or to have your system serviced by unknowledgeable technicians who could cause more problems than you currently have.

Ask for a Referral

The best place to start is by asking your friends if they can refer someone. Who better to trust than your friends and family? Chances are that they can direct you toward (or away from) a contractor whom they have dealt with in the past. Of course, not everyone’s experience is the same. While someone may have had a negative experience, another may have had a positive one. Be sure to do your own research on the contractor before making a decision.

Check Them Out Online

Visit a contractor’s website for more information on their products and services, and to better gauge their level of professionalism. Does their website have customer reviews? Video reviews from real customers are great to see. Additionally, are they a Better Business Bureau Accredited Business, Angie’s List approved, or a Factory Authorized Dealer? Do they have NATE certified technicians? How long have they been in business and are they properly licensed and insured?

Ask For a Second (Or Third) Opinion

Whether you are in need of repair or a completely new system installation, these services aren’t always affordable. This makes choosing a good contractor even more important. On the other hand, it isn’t a good idea to choose the contractor with the lowest prices, as quality may be lacking. Always seek multiple estimates from varying contractors. This will give you a better idea of what to expect and prevent yourself from a disastrous experience.
