Every week, we hear stories about people feeling they were duped by a company or unlicensed contractor. Instead of ignoring them, we are sharing their stories in a funny but educational video series to help people avoid falling for these cons.
Shopping for best price or online only when looking for a new air conditioning unit.
Today most of us shop on the internet – it’s quick, easy, and usually cheaper than any store. However, sometimes attempting to save a few bucks can cost you plenty down the road.
The same is true for air conditioning. HVAC is expensive and it’s tempting to try and look online for a good deal. However, without the advice of a knowledgeable HVAC specialist, you may get a lower price for the equipment, but experience major consequences in the long-run with inefficient performance and replacement costs.
HVAC Companies that offer to buy your old equipment or give you a huge discount in exchange for your old equipment
Don’t trust anyone contacting you out of the blue with an unbelievable offer for your existing, old unit and thousands off a new one. Reputable companies don’t go around promising free services or massive discounts. After all, they’re in business to make a profit. When someone makes you an unbelievable offer, you should maintain a healthy suspicion.
Be cautious of big discounts or phony offers that come out of the blue… if the offer sounds too good, it probably is. Always get at least two quotes before you buy.
