Your HVAC system has broken down, and you’re on the hunt for an efficient and cost-effective repair service. As you scroll through page after page of possible HVAC service providers in your search engine (or the phone book), it hits you: you don’t even know what you’re looking for. What are the traits that make up a truly valuable HVAC service?
HVAC service value goes beyond price. Your HVAC service provider should offer the assurance of safety, honesty and professionalism. Read through these five qualities of a valuable HVAC service provider and make sure you’re not being taken advantage of during your next HVAC service appointment.
- There Is No Surprise Pricing™
When your HVAC service provider quotes a price, hold them to it. You shouldn’t have to pay for a service mistake made by your HVAC technician. Any system mis-diagnosis or extra labor is on them. If they call you with a “forgotten” part, and insist that your system needs it, then you insist that they pay for it. After all, you paid for a complete repair service…the first time. If they didn’t complete it, or “forgot” a part you may have needed, that is a slip-up in their service. You shouldn’t have to pay for your HVAC service provider’s mistake or lapse in judgment.
- They’ve Got A Warehouse On Wheels
Your HVAC technician arrives, diagnoses your repair issue and then takes a 30-minute road trip to the company warehouse. Sound familiar? Not exactly the “quick and easy” repair you had in mind. You don’t have time to wait around the house all day or schedule multiple appointments. You need a HVAC service that carries 90% of the necessary parts right on their truck. Not only does this make for faster service, it indicates a reliable provider that always comes prepared.
- You’re Charged By The Job, Not The Hour
An hourly HVAC service means you pay for the time your technician takes to unload his truck, take a phone call, take a break and possibly take a road trip for extra parts. Look for a HVAC service that offers up-front, No Surprise™ fixed pricing that mirrors the extent of the work required.
- Technicians Are Background-Checked
If you think this is far-fetched for a HVAC repair service, think again. These technicians are entering your home — they must be responsible, respectable and, above all, safe. Make sure your HVAC service provider performs thorough background checks and quarterly drug testing on all of their technicians to ensure complete comfort and peace of mind during your HVAC repair service.
- They Offer On-Time Service Guarantees
You’ve taken time out of your daily schedule for this repair service. When your technician doesn’t show up at the arranged appointment time, not only is it unprofessional, it’s disrespectful. You are a paying customer, and they kick-off your business transaction with a late arrival? Part of valuable service is respecting your customers and their requested time window.
Don’t let the wrong HVAC service take advantage of you in your time of need. Now that you’re armed with the information you need to choose the right HVAC service, your next repair should be quick, comfortable and priced just right.
