How to Protect Yourself from AC Scams

AC scams have been on the rise across Florida, with home and business owners alike falling for scams aimed at taking advantage of the less educated.

Below we offer some tips on how to protect yourself from dishonest contractors and HVAC services companies.

1. Get a Second Opinion

Just like you would at the doctors, it never hurts to get a second opinion from another contractor, especially if something seems or feels ‘off’.

2. Ask Them to SHOW You

You don’t have to take the contractor at their word regarding a recommended HVAC or AC service. Ask them to show you and demonstrate the issue with your system or AC unit, and explain what is happening, why, and how they intend to fix it.

3. Research and Educate Yourself

As a consumer, one of the best things you can do is educate yourself about your AC unit and system, as well as maintenance and potential issues that could occur. This can help you when hiring a legitimate professional to address the problem.

4. Ratings and Reviews

Always investigate a contractor’s history, ratings, and reviews to see what other consumers are saying about them. You can also ask for references and before/after photos.

5. Training and Experience

Don’t be afraid to ask and verify the type of training and experience the AC or HVAC company has.

6. Licensed and Insured

Always ask for verification that the company or individual is licensed, bonded, and insured.
