How to Find an AC Contractor

So your HVAC system is on the fritz, or you’re looking for someone who can handle a new system installation. That means you’re going to need a local HVAC technician! But a quick check in the Yellowpages or a swift search online will tell you quite quickly that there are dozens of HVAC companies in Pennsylvania—even quite a few just in the Allentown area.

So how do you pick the right one? How do you find someone who’s better than just “okay,” and a team that is going to treat you with respect and trust? The answer doesn’t always seem easy. But the specialists at Jack Lehr Heating, Cooling & Electric are here to help! Follow along to find out how to find your ideal pick.

How to Pick the Ideal AC Contractor

The good news is that finding a good team isn’t actually as hard as it first seems. All good technicians are going to display some very obvious signs that they’re the folks you want to work with. You just need to know what to watch out for:

  • Strong local presence. Good businesses don’t tend to stay a secret for very long. The most trusted and utilized AC technicians tend to make themselves known, and if they don’t, word of mouth is often a good indicator of solid service.
  • Uniforms, marked vehicles, and more. The display of decals and logos isn’t just a marketing thing. It also lets you know that the team you’re considering is an actual technician. Unmarked vehicles and uniformless technicians are often indicators of a scam.  
  • Solid consumer reviews. Billboards, pop ups, clickbait—they have their place in advertising, sure. But when you’re trying to select a team that does good, reputable work, you should be looking at reviews from actual customers. Take some things with a grain of salt, but by looking at the whole picture you can usually suss out whether or not a team is worth your time.
  • A team capable of making a good first impression. Never treat a consultation as a done deal! This is your chance to feel the AC technician in Allentown out. Are they friendly, professional, and presentable? Do they answer your questions readily and avoid being vague? If yes, you’re on the right track.
  • Clear pricing and no run-arounds. Hidden fees are nonsense. There’s just no other way to say it. Prices for HVAC work are often not set in stone, true, but a technician should be ready to present you with a reasonable on paper estimate before they start any work.
