September 30th, 2013

Autumn has arrived and, although temperatures remain quite warm, the coming break in the excessive heat offers the perfect chance to acquire maintenance for retiring Tucson air conditioning units as well as for upcoming demands on Tucson heating units. You don’t want to wait until the last minute to find a good quality air and heating service provider since it can be quite uncomfortable having units down for extended periods of time. It is much better to do a bit of homework beforehand and locate a quality company that can properly maintenance your units before they break down.

Here are 5 tips that will help you select a quality Tucson air conditioning and heating company.

Tip #1 – Check Qualifications, Coverage and Expertise – When researching Tucson air conditioning and heating companies, you want to look into their qualifications, coverage and expertise in the industry. Plenty of “fly by night” companies and individuals exist that can leave you worse off than when you started. Therefore, to avoid unpleasant experiences, check on company business licenses, liability insurances and training qualifications, and ensure that all of these are up to date.

Tip #2 – Ask for and Check Referrals – One of the best ways to determine if a company is sound is to check with clients that they have served. People who have had direct experiences with companies are fast to provide a thumbs up or down to those seeking opinions and they are usually quite honest about such experiences. You can’t go wrong with companies that have been around for awhile and that have plenty of good references under their belt.

Tip #3 – Availability – Another good trait of a high quality Tucson air conditioning and heating company is their attention to customers. Good companies will go out of their way to meet customer needs in a timely manner so that the least amount of inconvenience occurs.

Tip #4 – Friendliness – This is one factor which has significantly deteriorated over the past couple of decades due to many companies sacrificing that warm, family-like atmosphere for the customers-are-cattle, in-and-out mentality. Therefore, it is quite refreshing to come across businesses that offer warm, friendly customer service through each step of the process.

Tip #5 – The Price Factor – Practically everyone looks for a good price on Tucson air conditioning and heating services, especially in economically difficult times. And comparable bids and prices are definitely a part of the overall equation. However, keep in mind that low prices can also be a tell-tale sign of insufficient knowledge, lack of experience and poor quality. Therefore, first ensure that the factors listed above are present before eliminating a company on price alone. A Tucson air conditioning and heating company that provides qualified service and good work, and is available and committed to meeting your needs in a friendly manner as well as provide a competitive price is a great catch.
