Tips On Finding The Right Air Conditioning Expert
There are plenty of reasons why you want to make sure you choose the right expert to install, service or repair your air conditioning. Brisbane homeowners who have done their research know that no matter what type of AC system you choose or own, it represents an important investment in the comfort and value of your home.
Meanwhile, your AC is among the most complex systems in your home, so you don’t want to settle for anyone less than a trained and experienced professional to install or work on it.
With the heat and humidity we co-exist with in Brisbane, air conditioning that’s installed properly and functioning well can make a huge difference in your quality of life. So whether you’re looking to install a new system or repair one, you want the job done right.
What To Look For
- Up-to-date training. Given the evolving technologies and options available in air conditioning systems, it’s imperative that you choose an AC expert who has experience with the specific brand and model of the system you either own or plan to install. Given the sophisticated nature of this equipment—which can involve everything from complex wiring to crucial ventilation—a contractor who is unfamiliar with your model could make mistakes that are not only costly but potentially dangerous to your home and your family.
- Licensing. Ask if the contractor holds a licence from the Australian Refrigeration Council (ARC). Licenced contractors are experts who have agreed to uphold the industry code of practice and have the necessary skills to install, maintain and service an air-conditioning system.
- References. Any expert should be able to provide you with a list of customers—preferably recent—who can vouch for the quality of their work. Needless to say, it’s not enough to see the list; call the references to ask if they were satisfied with the job performed, felt the price was fair, and the work carried in a professional and timely manner.
- Estimates. We recommend you get written estimates from at least three different companies, which will give you a good idea of what’s fair for your job. However, price is not the only consideration, because choosing the contractor who offers the lowest rate could cost you in the long run if you haven’t also checked out their experience and references.
