Signs Your Air Conditioner Unit Needs Repair
It's Blowing Hot Air
When your A/C is blowing hot air, it's an indicator that you have a broken compressor. It can also be a sign that you've got a refrigerant leak.
A/C Not Blowing Air
If you've noticed a reduction in airflow, it might indicate a faulty compressor or blocked ducts, both of which are small problems to an experienced AC repair technician in Amarillo.
Air Conditioner Is Not Turning On
If the circuit breaker trips, the AC unit won't turn on until you reset it. However, the thermostat could have a problem. Another common problem is when the outside a/c unit runs, but the inside one doesn't, which might mean your unit requires significant repair.
Finding the Best HVAC Company in Amarillo
To assist in your search, here are a few things you should consider.
Research and Referrals
Before settling on a HVAC contractor, you need to do your homework well. One way to find reputable companies in your areas is to look at reputable review sites. Sites such as Yelp will have a list of contractors in your area with ratings from previous customers. You can also ask your friends, neighbors and workmates for reliable contractors. From your research and referrals, you can come up with a list of potential companies.
Read Online Reviews
Other than what your acquaintances have told you about the potential contractor, you need to read reviews from other clients. There will be a review section on most of their websites where clients explain their experiences with the contractor.
Reading reviews from previous clients can help shed light on what to expect from them. If the reviews are mainly negative, you should cross the company off your list, but if you only find one or two negative reviews amidst numerous positive reviews, don't cross them off. It's impossible to please everyone.
Request A Written Estimate and Compare
A reputable company won't hesitate to give you a written estimate even before they begin work. Be wary of a company that offers you an estimate over the phone without inspecting the system first. You can only get an accurate estimate after a technician has examined the system and diagnosed the problem. The estimate should be as detailed as possible with no hidden costs.
Once you get estimates from different companies, compare and choose those with reasonable rates. Even though you're looking to save money, don't go for the cheapest option. They probably have hidden costs not indicated on the estimate, or they have to cut corners to give a low price. However, ask if the company offers discounts or a special rate that could bring the price down.
Other than the price, here are other factors you should compare:
Time to complete the AC repair
Now that you've narrowed down your list of potential companies, request several referrals to check out the contractor's past projects. Most companies will gladly offer you a list you can check out. If they're hesitant or refuse to give you a list of references, you should cross them off. If a company is proud of the work they have done in the past, there would be no reason not to offer you a list.
Make an effort to call the referrals and ask them the below questions:
Were the services offered completed in time and within budget?
Did the company respect your property during service?
Did the technicians leave a mess, or did they clean up the area after they completed the job?
Was the system tested after repair?
Answers to the above questions will help you make a decision, and they give a clear picture of what to expect once you select that company. If you like to be more thorough, visit the project sites and view the results first-hand.
Check How Long the Company Has Been In Business
It helps to find out how long the company has been in business in Amarillo. If a company has been in business for long, it indicates that it's well-established and familiar with the HVAC needs of the client base in that service area.
Other than the number of years the company has been operational. You should also check the experience of their technicians. Technicians with two or more years of experience are preferred because they have more hands-on expertise.
Check Licenses, Certification and Insurance
In Amarillo, all HVAC contractors need licenses to operate. A reputable contractor won't hesitate to give you their license number. You should look up the business license to see if it's current. By choosing a licensed company, you can be sure you shall receive the service from a knowledgeable technician because they have to be approved by a regulatory agency to work in the state.
Other than a valid license, the company should have insurance, particularly liability and worker's compensation coverage. If they don't have insurance, you could be held liable for accidents on your property.
Once a company has checked each of the above boxes, you can go ahead to hire them and sign a service contract.
