If you are looking for an AC company to help you make your home more comfortable, there are some things you should keep in mind when choosing the right contractor. Here’s how to choose the right AC company for the job in Jacksonville.
Check the Paperwork
The first thing a quality AC contractor should have is all the right paperwork. This includes business licensing to work legally in Jacksonville, as well as any required certifications to work with hazardous materials in the state of Florida. Also look for worker’s compensation insurance and surety bonds that help protect you and the business in the event of any accidents or disagreements. Be sure to find out how long the contractor has been licensed and insured, and check that their documents are all renewed.
Check the Contract
The next thing to look for in a great AC company is a very detailed contract. Look for a written document that includes everything from the dates that your work will be completed, the complete breakdown of all the costs, when the payment is due in full, and any other parts of the AC contract that you have in place. This contract shows you that the company is serious about ensuring that everyone is on the same page and that you know exactly what to expect from them. It also provides an accountability document so that you can both know what is happening and when.
The next thing that a great company should always have are references from other customers. You should be able to get at least three references from an AC company that is willing to answer your questions about the company. Don’t get the referrals – actually call them and ask how the company was to work with, and how the system they installed has held up since the installation. If a company can’t offer referrals, or points you to testimonials on their website, it may be a sign that they don’t have any former customers who were impressed by their service.
These three things will help you hire the best AC contractor you can so that your system is expertly installed. You’ll also be protected in any situation that may arise.
