How To Avoid An AC Company Scam

By: Del-Air Heating and Air Conditioning

We know that air conditioning is a year-round need in Florida. Unfortunately, the necessity of this system has led to AC companies taking advantage of consumers and prescribing unnecessary services and repairs or offering generally poor service. Avoiding these scams can be challenging, but homeowners can find the real deal by doing a little homework when searching for Orlando air conditioning services.

In the past, we have shared 4 tips on how to avoid HVAC scams and bad service, but we aren’t satisfied with leaving it at that. Here are a few more tips to save you money and the headaches that come with bad service.

1. Be Skeptical of “Too Good to Be True” Deals or Quotes

We know that saving money is often a priority, especially on big expenses such as air conditioning repairs. You should be wary of those too-sweet deals or limited-time offers, however. You may feel compelled to agree to a service to avoid missing out on a money-saving detail, but these “deals” can end up costing you significantly in the long run. A reputable contractor will never pressure you into buying before you’ve had a chance to do your research and make an informed decision.

2. Know Your Contractor

Nothing beats developing a relationship with your contractor to protect yourself from scams. With our Orlando air conditioning professionals, it’s easy. We take extra steps to make you feel comfortable and thoroughly screen and train every Del-Air Heating and Air Conditioning team member to ensure your satisfaction. We’ll take the time to show you the problems we find, recommend repairs, and we even offer extensive preventative maintenance services to save you money on big repairs.

3. Question the Details

You should never be hit with surprise charges, so it’s important to carefully review your quotes for unexpected additions. If your technician is pushing performance-boosting additives, extensive repairs, or even suspiciously low prices, you should wonder why. When choosing a company to service your air conditioning system, you should look for highly qualified and protected companies, like our fully licensed and insured team. Each of our HVAC professionals is NATE (North American Technician Excellence) certified and EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) certified. You also should check the vehicle the technician arrives in for clear company markings, license numbers, and other identifying information to ensure you’re only getting the best.

4. Learn About Your System & Ask Questions

The best way to protect yourself is to know about your home’s system. While it can be hard to be an expert on all things air conditioning, you should feel free to ask questions and get clearly explained answers for them. A reputable company has no problem showing you the issue, explaining what the issue is, and reviewing your options with you. We understand that trust is earned, so we strive to be completely honest and transparent with our work.

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…
