It is good to know the basics about air conditioning
You should always be a conversant about air-conditioning if you expect to discuss the repair procedures with the technician you want to hire. Remember that hired workers will always look at the activity from their perspective and will always follow the way that will make it easier for them to finish their task. As the owner of the house, you have to look out for its interests and the interest of the people living there. When you plan out the details of the repair with your technician, you will need some knowledge about the mechanics of air-conditioning to understand what he is proposing to do and for you to be able to make counter proposals of your own in the interest of minimizing the disturbance that the repairs will cause for people in the house.
Get people on the basis of the recommendations of good friends
If you are undertaking air conditioning repairs for the first time, your good friends can tell you from their experience where to get the best professionals to do the job for you.
So make the rounds among your relatives and friends and get their recommendations. You should consider avoiding getting recommendations from the vendor of your equipment unless you are absolutely sure of his good character. He may recommend technicians who invent reasons for you to spend more on the repairs than is necessary. It is best to get people from a company that specializes in air conditioning repairs and does not engage in selling air conditioner spare parts.
Insist on seeing the credentials of the technician
Especially if you are not hiring someone who is connected with an air conditioning repair company, you should ask him to show you a list of people whom he regularly services. When was the last time he repaired anyone’s air conditioner? If that was more than a year ago, you should suspect that the man is not really all that good for him to be out of work for one year. On the other hand he may be a trainee disguising as an expert in air conditioning repair. In case the technician was not recommended by anyone you know, ask your friends if they know him or anything about him. News travels fast within professional communities and clients are usually in on all the gossip.
So don’t miss this chance to verify that your technician has no bad record. This not only involves his technical skills but also his personal integrity. In short, make absolutely sure you are not hiring a person with a shady history.
