Finding a good contractor for any home improvement or repair job is vital. The relationship and trust that must be shared between you and your contractor is paramount to getting a good service. Your contractor should be honest above all else. Many of us know, from sad experience, that is not always the case. We can spend hundreds or even thousands of dollars to find that the job was not completed to regulation standards and in some cases, not completed at all. It can be an extremely stressful process finding someone else and by then your confidence in any contractor could be so shattered that you won’t know who to trust.
The key to finding a reliable air conditioning contractor Knoxville area, is first to ask around any family and friends who may have had a systems repaired, installed or maintained recently. Ask them which company they used and whether they were reliable. Ask about their price structure for their service and ask how quickly they come out to your home to do the job. Other things to ask are whether they left a mess behind them to clean up or whether they were diligent about their work. There are so many things to consider and it can be daunting, but when you do find a good company it will pay dividends.
Where to Start
If your friends and family have no contractor that they have used or could recommend, you can try searching local web sites for contractors with a good reputation. Many will have testimonials from customers, but, a word of caution on this; some will write their own testimonials using fake customers. The way to get around this is to ask the company for names and addresses that you can visit and call to ask if they can show you the work. Yes, that seems a little extreme but when you think that you are spending hundreds of dollars on maintenance and repair you are going to want to be sure that you get someone you can trust.
If you have no luck with testimonials, try looking for companies that your neighbors may have used. They may have a similar unit to you or just a different one that has been well maintained by a good contractor. Ask your prospective contractor if they offer a free assessment without a call out fee. When they visit your home, ask them whatever questions you need to have answers to, to satisfy your concerns. Always be sure you feel comfortable with the contractor before you sign a contract or give them the job. If you have any doubts, go with your gut and look somewhere else. The right one will be out there somewhere.
