Fall is a great time of year. The days are getting shorter, yes, but the sun doesn’t have the time necessary to heat the planet up as much as we are used to in the summer. With cooler days, we rely on our air conditioning less, and the weather isn’t cold enough to turn on the heater. Most will see this as an opportunity to cut back on their electricity use via their HVAC systems, while others see this as an opportunity to prepare their systems for the long, cold season ahead of them. So how do you make sure that your system is fully prepared for the system? Check these tips to see how you can get the most from the HVAC company you choose.
Licensed and Insured
This is a huge tip that most overlook. Making sure your HVAC company is licensed is a great way to make sure they don’t just “disappear” after your service has been completed. Companies that aren’t licensed can dip off the radar and don’t have to uphold any guarantees or warranties they may have promised and you may have paid for. Making sure they are insured can protect you in more ways than one. If the technician has an “accident” and it causes damage to your house, the insurance will cover it. Also, if the technician gets injured, having insurance can also have you not held liable.
Have Your Technician Oil Moving Parts
We use a lot of things to make our lives easier: beds for sleeping; smartphones for calling, texting, managing our schedule and more; and vehicles for transportation. Life would be very difficult without these commodities we use every day. If you could make life easier for your HVAC, would you do it? Oiling the moving parts of your HVAC system can make it run more efficiently and effortlessly, and can increase longevity of your system.
Preparing for the worse is something we could all do better. You never know what the future may hold, but it never hurts to be prepared. A Superior AC has Preventative Maintenance plans, where you can protect your HVAC system’s longevity. The Preventative Maintenance plans include Labor and Parts warranties, special discounts through A Superior AC, priority service and extended appointment hours, and no overtime service charges; all available from the Silver plan and up. The Bonus plan includes dryer vent cleaning as well, to help prevent against house fires and pesky nesting animals.
Sometimes, you just have go out on a limb and try something you’ve never tried before. Luckily, with the use of the internet, that doesn’t have to be the case when selecting your HVAC technician. Before making your selection, read online reviews to see how other people would rate them, see the perks of the service they have granted, and, if necessary, see the faults the company has done and if that could potentially be you. Almost all reviews online are completely unbiased responses from happy or unhappy customers, so use that to your advantage.
