If you are hiring an air conditioning contractor, it may fair well to follow the below advice:

– Prior to doing anything, check the warranty on your current air conditioning unit to determine whether any repairs, replacements or tune-ups
– Arrange for annual maintenance on your AC Unit with a qualified technician. This will entail checking the airflow over the coil, testing for the correct fluid level, know as the refrigerant, reviewing the combustion process and ensuring proper airflow to each room
– Research the company you have hired, their work history and if there have been any complaints
– Similarly, check licensing by asking to see a copy of the contractor’s license and insurance before work stats
– Compare at least three estimates you have acquired before choosing a contractor
