Imagine needing AC service in Elizabethtown on a 100-degree day in August. You’re in a hurry to find help so that your home can get back to being cool and comfortable as soon as possible, so you open up the phone book (or your Internet browser) and just pick a local company with no research because this company advertised a special sale on Elizabethtown air conditioning repair service. The crew arrives and repairs your unit for a low cost. You’re happy, you’ve saved money, you’re comfortable and cool – right?
Well, not so fast. After three days you notice the AC seems to be running constantly, but your home doesn’t feel cool. It’s stuffy, too warm for your comfort, and every time you check the thermostat, the temperature of the home isn’t down to where you have it set. You call the same service company and are told that there will be another charge for them to come back out. When you object, stating that the job obviously wasn’t done right the first time, you’re told that there is no guarantee on service and it must be a new problem presenting itself this time, warranting another charge.
This scenario is all too common, and it all can be avoided with choosing the right HVAC company to begin with. The best time to do your research (and you DO need to do research) is before you need help. This way, if something unforeseen happens with your unit, you’re not in a panic to find any old company quickly. One of the best ways to go about doing research on various local companies is to use online reviews from others in the area who have had experiences. Find out from Angie’s List, the Better Business Bureau, and other sites what others have to say about the companies they chose. Take the time to really read the reviews and look at ratings; it will be well worth your time.
The advanced HVAC systems of today are more complicated than in the past and energy efficient, and require proper training and experience to be handled safely. There are several benefits of hiring companies like EC&S that employ NATE certified technicians and professionally trained staff members. These benefits ensure the safety and comfort of your family and also provide you with reliable service for a reasonable price.
