What to Look for in an HVAC Technician

What to Look for in an HVAC Technician

Any time you hire a contractor to perform a service in your home, especially when they are handling expensive equipment such as that in your HVAC system, you want to make sure they are someone you can trust. Unfortunately, not every AC technician is willing to put a customer’s best interest in front of his or her paycheck. While they may get the job done, it might not be completed with the care and efficiency you’d expect from a professional.

Next time you need service for your air conditioning system, here’s how to tell if you’ve hired a technician who is willing to go above and beyond to meet your needs:

1. Arrives on Time, Ready to Complete the Job

The easiest way to make a terrible first impression on the job is by showing up late. Sure, things happen, and some time-delaying circumstances cannot be avoided, but a good technician will notify you if they are going to be late.

It’s also important for a technician to show up prepared. This means they’ll arrive in a truck full of tools and replacement parts, equipped to complete any task in a timely and effective manner.

2. Helps You Understand the Problem

You probably don’t know everything about how your AC works – that’s why you hired a professional to work on it. A good technician will help you understand the problem and explain how they are going to fix it in terms that you comprehend. When a technician begins using confusing language filled with HVAC jargon, it’s often a sign they are trying to charge for services you don’t actually need.

Also, if you have a new AC or piece of equipment installed, a good technician will make sure you feel completely comfortable operating your system before they leave. They’ll ask you if you have any questions and will thoroughly address your concerns.

3. Treats You and Your Home With Respect

When you invite a contractor into your home, you expect them to treat you and your home with care and respect. They should maintain clean, safe workspaces and take steps to avoid unnecessary noise disturbances. When the job is done, they should leave your home just as clean as it was before. The only way anyone will know they were there is by how smoothly and efficiently your newly fixed AC is running.
