How do you know if you got the right ac repair for the right price? Sometimes you don’t, and there’s a certain level of trust needed. However, there are some ways that you can assure yourself that you were not overcharged and that any mistakes will be rectified on behalf of the technician who fouled. Nobody wants to spend one day, let alone two or three waiting around for the HVAC company to call, so taking a few precautions and investing a bit of supervision before and after the service can save you time and money.

If there is a problem with the condenser, for example, the entire system may have become contaminated as well and requires cleaning or a thorough checkup. Proper ac repair involves checking the entire system, but in the case of an apathetic and less than professional HVAC technician, you may get shortchanged if you aren’t careful. Ask if any other components of the systems have been damaged or could be as a result of this problem. Or you can also simply inquire about the condition of the rest of the unit, such as refrigerate levels, leaks, or an old air filter.
Ever had a HVAC technician exclaim, “It’s all fixed!” to discover a week later that it sputters and stops again? It is up to the repairman to te
