An air conditioner is going to cost you quite a bit of money at times (not to mention an ac service you will need to get). There are also ways to get some repairs done for dirt cheap. What should you do to make sure you’re not getting ripped off?
The first thing you need is a price quote. Don’t just get one and say that’s what you’re going to go with. You need to get more than one and make sure that you’re familiar with at least 3 options if there are that many where you live. That allows you to calculate an average and that shows you who is charging too much when compared to the others.
Some people can charge a little more than average if they have a lot of experience and skill. If you can find someone that had training at an HVAC school, and that has been working in the field for a few years, they may be able to do better work than just someone that was hired because they are okay at fixing ACs. It’s good to read up on the companies through reviews in case they tell you that they were well trained but they have a bad track record (I can recommend miami air conditioning).
