4 Tips On How To Avoid HVAC Scams and Bad Service

As Florida residents ourselves, we know that air conditioning is a way of life around here. Unfortunately, the importance of this system means that AC companies have a lot of opportunities to take advantage of consumers. To avoid HVAC scams, and generally bad service, homeowners need to do their homework when researching companies that provide air conditioning services.

A leader in HVAC services, Del-Air Heating and Air Conditioning installs and repairs all the top brand systems. Additionally, we provide regular maintenance to keep your air conditioner functioning year round. Here are some of our top 4 tips to help consumers protect themselves from scams:

  • Get a Second Opinion: Want to avoid tricks and scams? Ask for a second opinion on your next big HVAC purchase or repair. If an unknown company suggests work totaling a thousand dollars or more, don’t hesitate to get a third opinion as well! Additionally, consumers should avoid paying in cash or making out checks to individuals as opposed to companies.
  • Keep the Maintenance Agreement: Along with the manufacturer’s warranty, savvy consumers always hold on to their maintenance agreements. After all, you don’t want to be on the hook for a second repair in the event that your HVAC company fails to service the system correctly the first time around.
  • Ask for Estimates in Writing: Don’t want to get scammed on your next air conditioning services? Request that your HVAC company submit a quote in writing. Not only does this keep providers honest, but it also allows you to shop around for a great deal.
  • Check for Licenses and Certifications: The fact is that not all AC technicians are created equal. To protect your HVAC system, it’s important to make sure the AC company you hire holds the proper licenses and certifications. Additionally, any AC technician who works on your system should be an expert in indoor air quality and green HVAC solutions. And of course, the company in question should screen its employees and perform background checks for your protection.

This was my first experience with Del-Air and they were prompt, professional, and knowledgeable. They were able to get me in on the same day for a maintenance visit, which I wasn’t expecting but very much appreciated. The office staff was pleasant and so was the technician that came out to service my air conditioners. Thanks…
