What is a Good Contractor Worth?
What is a Good Contractor Worth? You probably don’t think about your central home heating and cooling system until something goes wrong. When that happens, you need a professional. Hiring an HVAC contractor means getting what you paid for.
Professional contractors treat employees fairly, and pay for licensing, insurance, bonding, and safety equipment. Their employees get continuing education, needed to repair the latest technology. Professional contractors are always there for you. Not just for break-downs, they offer service plans that reduce energy bills.
Contractors offering cheap services usually cut corners. Hiring untrained technicians, ignoring laws, or even making unnecessary repairs. They might sound like a good deal, but they’re not. When you need them again, they’ll probably be out of business.
Professional contractors care about your family’s comfort, health, and safety, just like you.
Why Should I Get a Second Opinion?
You would probably think twice before making an immediate decision about an expensive proposition such as a new car or medical procedure. A second opinion is the best way to determine if you’re making the right decision. We here at Sunset Air and Home Services, we encourage you to apply that same reasoning when considering an investment in a new air conditioning system.
Unfortunately, there are companies that deliberately mislead customers into believing that they need something when that is not actually the case. It may not be an entire system; in fact, often it’s a small part or something insignificant. But there are occasions when technicians, especially those who receive commissions for up-selling a customer, may recommend a brand new system that could end up costing several thousands of dollars.
How can I protect myself?
The sad fact is that these sales people are often successful, mainly because many homeowners have only purchased one or two air conditioning units in the past. Because of their limited knowledge, they are likely to trust the “expert” who is providing them with information. This is especially the case in the middle of summer when the unit is not working and the family is hot, hot, hot. That’s exactly when it’s wise to suffer a little discomfort for a short period of time and get a second opinion.
One of our customers in Naples, Florida, had a personal experience with a misdiagnosis before he came to us for help.
“Dear Jason and the rest of the Sunset Air team” he wrote.“ I wanted to let you know that it has been a pure pleasure to work with you and your extended team. When I contacted Sunset Air and Home Services back in August with my very difficult situation (another AC contractor’s improper installation of a very costly AC system), I wasn’t expecting to get the level of service and professionalism that I received from your team. My previous experiences had left me tainted, but your team surpassed all expectations. From Stan to Ryan to Ray to the installers (even yourself who contacted me with some very good advice), it has been a pure pleasure. Their level of knowledge, promptness, and professionalism is second to none. Not only do I have my AC system working back as it should have been, I have the absolute confidence that it will remain that way under the expertise of your service maintenance. Your organization is the perfect example of what an air conditioning company should be. I will happily recommend Sunset Air to anyone needing your services.”
At Sunset Air, it’s our goal that consumers make informed decisions and receive the services they actually need. We believe that second opinions are important, and offer them at no cost to current and potential customers.
If you have a question about a diagnosis or just want to make sure you’re making the right choice, just give us a call and we’ll do our best to make sure you have all the information you need to feel comfortable with your decision.
