1. Research Several Air Conditioner Contractors
A good place to start is by asking friends and relatives for referrals to find a Mesa Arizona AC contractor. Next check the contractor out with the Better Business Bureau to ensure that there are no unresolved complaints against them. The Better Business Bureau can also provide information regarding how long the contractor has been in business and if they are licensed, bonded, and insured.
2. Ask For References
Once you have narrowed down your list of contractors to two or three ask the AC contractors for references and then call them. Many people drop the ball here and don’t actually make the calls. When you call the references ask specific questions such as; did the contractor provide good service? Did they start and finish the job on time? Did they stay on budget?
3. Air Conditioning System Evaluation
The AC contractor should spend a considerable length of time inspecting your current air conditioning, duct work and insulation. Make him aware of any uncomfortable rooms so that he can take that into consideration. He will then measure airflow and use a formula to find the proper air conditioning unit to fit your home and budget.
4. Energy Star Air Conditioning Units
To qualify for the Energy Star rating air conditioning must meet strict energy efficiency guidelines set by the Environmental Protection Agency and must also provide substantial long term energy savings. Your air conditioning expert should be able to estimate the savings you can realize by having high efficiency, Energy Star air conditioning installed.
A new air conditioning system is a major purchase, but you may be able to lower the cost by checking for available rebates on Energy Star qualified products. When you choose to use Energy Star air conditioning equipment you will save money by saving energy, and protect the environment by reducing greenhouse gases.
5. Save Even More
Central air conditioning needs a blower motor which is most often a part of the furnace, so your furnace may prevent your new air conditioning from performing at its peak efficiency. If your furnace is 10 to 15 years old you should seriously consider a new HVAC system rather than just new air conditioning.
Take your time in choosing an AC contractor in Mesa. This is one of the most important components in your home. Take the time to research contractors, call references, and obtain a minimum of three itemized, written estimates for the job. Be aware that the lowest bid may not be the best deal. If you don’t purchase the most energy efficient components your costs will be higher in the long run.
Before the job gets started, sign a written proposal with the air conditioning company. The written proposal should include the model numbers, warranty information, work schedule and cost.
