Identifying And Avoiding AC Repair Scams

A properly maintained HVAC system is very important in keeping your home cool throughout the summer months. There are a number of companies that often prey upon homeowners at the start of the summer months, however. Hiring any technician to fix up your AC system or perform general maintenance is not advisable. Here are some of the best ways that you can identify and avoid AC repair scams before the summer starts:

You Can’t Find Any Company Information

If you can’t find company information or there’s no website that you can access, it’s likely that somebody is simply going around the neighborhood to make a quick buck.

They Don’t Have a Business Card

If the contractor doesn’t have a business card there’s a chance that they may be unlicensed or simply trying to take advantage of the situation.

Ask For Payment Upfront

When technicians us for payment upfront this can indicate that they may be simply taking the deposit and running away. HVAC companies that specialize in air-conditioning maintenance and repairs will not ask for cash upfront and it’s very likely that somebody is trying to scam you if they are asking for one of these deposits.

High-Pressure Sales Tactics

Many high-pressure sales tactics may be involved if a person is trying to pressure a customer into making the reactive decision. Making immediate decisions based on these tactics can often lead to mistakes and finding a company that is going to do a quick job for fast cash.
