As the weather heats up, it’s time to start thinking about air conditioning. If you live in an area where it gets hot, chances are you will want to have a way to cool your home when the temperatures reach their peak in the middle of summer. If you don’t have an air conditioner, or it’s time to replace an old one, you need to start searching for a place that does air conditioning installation in Tucson right away. Here are 5 things the company should have.
First, the company doing air conditioning installation in Tucson should have the right licensing, and second they should have insurance. These are two of the most important, yet two of the most often overlooked items. Any company can say they are licensed and insured, but it’s best if you check that out on your own before you hire them to do any work around your home. If you need to find out whether they are telling the truth, you can check with your Done Rite Services Air Conditioning & Heating, or your state office of professional licensing. They should have a list of requirements that every HVAC company must meet, and a list of currently licensed pros. For insurance, you can always ask to see a copy of the current insurance policy to make sure it’s legitimate.
Third, the company should have experience. Make sure you are working with a company that has installed the type of air conditioner you are planning to purchase, and they have a good track record of working in the industry. You can always look at reviews online and check out how long they have been in business to determine their experience.
Another important consideration is whether the company provides quality customer service. The best way to determine this is to find out from past customers. Ask each company that you get a bid from for a list of 3-5 past customers you can call for references. If the company cannot provide this list, it’s probably best to move on to another contractor.
Finally, make sure the company doing your air conditioning installation in Tucson has competitive pricing and a good warranty. You can and should get several bids from different companies before you hire anyone, and compare both the up front costs as well as the ongoing maintenance costs and how good the warranty coverage is. All these things contribute to the total cost of owning and operating the air conditioning unit. For more information, visit Done Rite Services Air Conditioning & Heating.
