The Ultimate Guide: How to Find a Great HVAC Repair Service Company ?

Updated: Feb 19



If you own a home, sooner or later you will have the need to hire a HVAC repair company. And, if you're in Arizona you definitely shouldn't neglect your air conditioner or heater /furnace maintenance. The reasons should be obvious, but the truth is most home owners aren't that mechanically inclined or savvy to keeping their AC system working properly. Most will have to hire an HVAC repair specialist to do their repairs or maintenance for them. Sad to say most only do this, when a crisis arises! Like when it's a 110 degrees out, and their air conditioner stops cooling suddenly, yikes! They seek out the quickest solution or service company possible to get them cooling again fast!

Unfortunately, they are at the mercy of whomever they can hire, and all too often the Home- owner takes a shellacking on the cost of the repairs, or get sucked into a HVAC system replacement, whether it was needed to be replaced or not. Having your AC or heating system fail suddenly can be a very stressful event and expensive, especially, if you're unprepared for it.


So, how do you go about finding a great HVAC repair professional that you can develop a long term relationship with? What is needed in any successful relationship? Honesty, good communication, respect, dependable, reliable, trust?


These days most will hop on their cell phones or their computers and do an online search for the services or whatever they need. This is really a crap shoot! They say 49% of consumers trust online reviews as much as personal recommendations from friends and family. The digital age has amplified the power of word-of-mouth through online reviews. Businesses should prioritize maintaining a positive online reputation as it holds significant weight in consumers' decision-making. Sometimes reviews can be helpful, but you need to read the good and the bad. Sometimes reviews can be fake!


If you can, check if the reviewer has reviews elsewhere. Many accounts are created to post one fake review. If the reviewer has lots of reviews on other products or places, check to see if they are all uncannily positive (and often short).


The good news is that there are many honest HVAC repair service companies out there. You just have to find them. One of your best strategies is to talk to people you trust, like your friends, your family, your neighbors and your coworkers. Chances are, someone you know has had a major AC repair or installation job done. 


Here are a few questions you can ask about a potential company:

  • What kind of work did they do for you?

  • Did the technician show up on time?

  • Did you have positive feelings throughout your interactions?

  • Did they explain the failures to your unit?

  • Did they explain what the best remedy or recommendation was ?

  • Did they give you a written estimate for the repairs or system replacement ?

  • Did you get multiple quotes? Was their quote lower, higher or the same as other quotes?

  • Was the final price for the job lower, higher or the same as the quoted price?


If you don’t have anyone to ask about recommendations (maybe you just moved into town), looking at online reviews and recommendations can help. Keep it mind it can be overwhelming, too. Especially for large repair or replacement jobs, make sure you get quotes from several different HVAC companies. Often, the best option is to go with the quote with the middle price. If the quote seems too good to be true, it probably is, and the final price is likely to be much higher. Remember that in the long run, quality work from an honest and trustworthy AC repair company is worth paying more for, and the best price is the one that will ensure long-lasting, and quality results. Take the time to find an honest AC repair company. You’ll be glad you did!
