Are you looking to replace your AC or install a brand new AC system? If so, you may have been searching around for reputable installation companies. But, before you sign on the dotted line, you should ask some thorough questions.
An AC system is a necessity so, you need to ensure you’re getting something suitable and a great deal.
To be sure of this, we have put together a range of important questions you should ask your AC installation company before the work begins.
By asking these, it will put your mind at ease and will make the process run smoothly.
Read on for more information.
Are You Licensed to Install AC Systems?
In some states, technicians don’t have to hold a license to be able to install systems. They may offer a cheaper price, but we advise you to go with someone who is licensed.
This is because, if something goes wrong, you’ll likely have to foot the bill and can’t claim compensation.
This adds significant risk to the project and not something you want hanging over your head. So stay safe and hire a licensed AC technician.
Are You Insured?
This follows on from licenses and is something you should make a priority before signing.
By hiring a licensed company you have the security against liability.
This means that if any damage is done to your property during the installation, their insurance will cover the cost of repairs. But, if they don’t hold valid insurance, you’ll be left out of pocket.
An uninsured company will likely offer a lower quote, but once again, there’s a higher risk.
How Do I Reduce My Utility Bills?
Unfortunately, AC systems can be expensive to operate, so it’s handy to know some cost-saving methods.
A skilled and knowledgeable technician will be able to advise on how to bring the running costs down. They’ll also be able to suggest more cost-efficient models that are more suited to your home.
If you can find one of these models, then you could save a significant amount of money.
What’s the Warranty?
You’ll want to ensure you install a new HVAC system with a long warranty. If not, you could face a large bill if something goes wrong.
Find out how long the warranty lasts, be sure what’s covered, and what you need to do to keep it valid. Some systems may need regular maintenance and servicing so, if you’re unaware, your warranty will expire.
Ask to see the terms and read through the small print carefully.
Questions to Ask When Hiring an AC Installation Company
We feel these are the best questions you should ask before installing an AC system.
An honest and reputable AC installation company will be able to answer all of these with ease. But if you find someone who is dodging the questions, then seek someone else.
Finally, if you would like a quote for your new AC systems, then please contact us.
