1. How do I check to see if my heating and air conditioning contractor is licensed?
The Secretary of State’s website has a list that can be searched for active licenses. Just type the name in of the contractor or the business you are looking for. There you can confirm if they have an active license on file. It is always best to use a licensed contractor for AC replacement.
2. Does it matter if I use a licensed contractor? Is it cheaper not to?
While a licensed contractor may cost more upfront, you get what you pay for when it comes to AC replacement. Licensed contractors are required to have insurance to cover damage to someone home it something happens. They also carry worker’s compensation insurance and general liability insurance coverage. If a non-licensed contractor comes to work in your unit and someone gets hurt, you could be liable for the injury. Unlicensed contractors don’t pull permits, meaning in the event of an injury, your homeowner’s insurance may not cover you. This can make you personally liable for hospital bills and disability payments. Plus, if someone doesn’t have the knowledge or experience to obtain a license, you wouldn’t want him or her working on your home.
3. Should I pay a diagnostic fee?
Most contractors charge some type of fee. These can include trip charge, service fee, diagnostics, or other charges in addition to their prices. At Duggan’s, we prefer to be up front and have you pay only for the service you receive. No matter if it is 30 minutes or 2 hours, you are still charged the same flat diagnostics, and we go over many different payment options. With our bills, nothing is hidden or deliberately left out. We provide just a simple flat rate payment option for AC replacement.
4. What brand is the best?
The best brand depends on your circumstances and cooling needs. When you get your system installed by a professional, you can rest assured that it is a quality product. It has been proven that 80% of customer satisfaction from AC replacement is due to proper installation and maintenance.
5. How do I choose the right HVAC professional?
Finding the right HVAC professional is all about asking the right questions. After gathering information about local HVAC companies, you can make the best decision on which one you want to choose. Ask the following questions:
- How long have you been in business?
- Do you have a local business license?
- Do you have a state license?
- Could you show me your insurance coverage?
- Do you background check your technicians?
- Do you perform drug testing on your technicians?
- What kind of warranties do you have beside the factory parts and labor warranties?
- Do you have technicians on-call?
It is also important to remember that if the price is too good to believe, then it should throw up some red flags for you. Once you feel comfortable with the answers to these questions, you should have enough information to make a decision on which contractor to use for AC replacement.
6. How often should I replace my air conditioning filters?
This question depends on how often you use your air conditioner. Then again, this is the state of Georgia, and we all know just how hot and humid those summer afternoons can get. If you’re not using your air conditioner nearly every day, then you may be one of the few.
You will usually have one or two types of filters, either a disposable one or a washable one. The disposable ones can be thrown out and replaced. Most experts recommend changing your filter depending on the type of filter you buy. If you purchase the cheap kinds ($1-$2), then you should replace them every one to two months. For the nice ones ($20+), then you can wait two to three months before replacing them. If you have the non-disposable washable kind, then you should take your filter out every month or so and clean it off. Doing these little maintenance jobs will keep your air conditioner working well.
It’s important to remember that the filter isn’t actually in the outdoor unit (also called a condenser). It’s actually located in the air handler or furnace.
7. How do I know if the warranty on my heating or air conditioning service is still valid?
Warranties on big-ticket items such as heaters and air conditioners can save you a major headache. If your furnace or air conditioner breaks down within that warranty, then you’re guaranteed a new replacement. However, it’s not always easy to know if you still have a warranty, especially if you don’t have the paperwork from the original installation.
While you might not be able to tell for certain, you can try to look up and judge your warranty based on the manufacturing date. This label will be located on your unit. Once you find it, check to see if the date was less than five years ago. If it was, then you may be eligible for a new system. The model of the system will also help decide whether you have an existing warranty on your equipment. Warranties can differ between the different manufacturers and models.
If you have a question about your warranty, the experts at Duggan’s One House Heating and Air Conditioning can help you out.
8. Why is it important to have regular service on my air conditioning system?
When you have a new air conditioning unit installed, you’re putting a lot of money into a good investment. You want to see that your investment remains safe and secure for as long as you live in your home. That means no problems with the air ducts or thermostat and no equipment that consistently breaks down.
The best way to keep your new air conditioning system in good condition is to have it serviced regularly. Doing so will help you catch problems before they began a big problem. For example, if your air ducts are regularly being cleaned, then our technicians can catch signs of mold or mildew before they get out of control. If either mold or mildew build up in your HVAC system, then parts of it may need to be replaced, which can be a major financial investment.
Doing regular repairs will also lessen the chances of your system breaking unexpectedly. That means fewer mornings waking up to a sweltering home because the air conditioner stopped working overnight.
