Selecting The Right Man For Your A/c Repair In Austin, Texas
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

While it may not seem important, taking time to hire the right man to complete your A/C repair in Austin, Texas is essential if you want to avoid any extra hassle. The wrong man could cost you extra time, extra money and could even result in the need to hire another company to get the job done right. The following are some of the things you should consider when choosing a repairman.

To get you started, it's a good idea to get some recommendations. Your friends or family may know of someone who has worked for them, but if not there are other options. For instance, the Internet is an excellent source and many times you can find customer comments and ratings, which can help you weed out the good from the bad. Another resource is your local Better Business Bureau, as complaints are generally lodged with them when things go awry.

Once you have a few names, you can narrow down the list by asking a few questions. First off, you should make sure that the company is properly licensed, certified and carries the proper insurance. Another thing you may want to find out is if any of their products or services comes with warranties or guarantees. Perhaps the most important question, though, should be: Are your employees paid on commission or salary? Beware of companies who pay their employees on commission, as they may be more inclined to recommend more expensive work in order to bring in a higher commission.

If by this point you still haven't made your final decision, then your next step will be to ask for an estimate from your final contenders. It is important to find out what products and services are included in each estimate, as some companies may not disclose all of their expenses in order to put in the lowest bid. Choosing the lowest bid without taking into consideration the services included in that bid could result in you having to paying more once the additional charges are added in. It may also be a good idea to find out if they have any procedures in place to deal with order changes.

If you do end up needing a new air conditioning system, be sure and ask for a size estimate, which is measured in BTUs. The size of your unit will be based on the size of the area that it will need to heat and cool. Selecting the proper size is imperative, as a unit that is too large or too small will be less effective and less efficient. You may need to decide between a unit that is considered energy efficient and a regular unit, but either unit will do just fine as long as it is sized correctly.

Before you start your search, you may want to consider checking to see if your problem is an easy fix. Check the indoor and outdoor units for blockages and debris that may interfere with the airflow. You may also want to check the air filter to see if it needs to be cleaned or replaced. When the temperature outside gets very hot, some systems may freeze as a result of running so much. If this is the case, then running your system on the fan setting for several hours will allow the system to unfreeze and start working again.

In conclusion, taking the time to find a good repairman is a worthwhile investment. It can be costly enough for an A/C repair in Austin without having to pay more because the person you hired is incompetent or greedy. It is best to do your homework and pick the right guy the first time.
