Watch Out for these Air Conditioning Nightmares

Monday, June 16th, 2014

Living in Phoenix AZ has many luxuries. We get seven months of really awesome weather which makes up for the other five months of really intense heat. In Phoenix we have all major sports teams, all the big concerts, beautiful lakes and mountains, and if you want to ski in the winter you can drive two hours north and get radical, and when you’re done, you can drive back down to the valley back into seventy degree temps. The valley of the sun also offers some of the best fine dining in the country and we’re becoming more well known for our micro brews and wine.

Having many luxuries in our large city can also have it’s negatives. As mentioned above, our summers are brutal with temps reaching as high as 115 degrees. With so many people living out here and so many HVAC contractors to choose from, sometimes it’s a bit overwhelming to choose the most qualified and most honest and trustworthy.

Making sure our air conditioning units are running efficiently before the summer heat get’s here is very important. Having an a/c unit breakdown in the middle of 115 degree heat is no fun at all. You can put your family and pets in a lot of danger if your home does not having cool air flowing through it during these hot summer days. That’s why it’s so important to research the local air conditioning repair and installation companies in your town. Here’s at Cool Touch we have a perfect rating with the Phoenix Better Business Bureau and a perfect rating with YELP. Yelp is a very popular website that people use to check out the local services in their cities. You can get reviews from people who have used your services and usually if you come across a company profile like ours, you’re more than likely to call and use our services.

Back in May 2014 (this year), a woman in Florida needed to have an air conditioning repair technician come out to her home for what was supposed to be a quick fix of her stuck thermostat. When the a/c tech got to her home he tried to pull a fast one. Just because this was in Florida does not mean that Phoenix Arizona does not have these types of con artists. You need to do your due diligence and select only the local HVAC contractors that have good track records, even if that means paying a little more. Get it done right the first time and protect yourself from being swindled out of thousands of dollars.

Remember, sometimes you may pay more for a service call, but usually if the company has a solid history, you’re not going to pay much more than the service call fee or for service work that may need to be done. I’d rather pay for those things than get hosed out of a few hundred or even thousands of dollars for equipment that I never even needed in the first place.
