7 Heating and Air Conditioning Scams YouNeedtoKnow
1. Make sure they are licensed. There are more people out there than you would imagine that don't even have a license or are "borrowing" from another contractor. 2. Be sure the contractor has insurance. If one of them falls off a ladder or roof, you could be sued and held liable.3. Make sure they do what is called a "Load Calc" to insure that your equipment is sized right. Even evaporative coolers need to be sized correctly. This is even more important than the brand of equipment you purchase.4. Ask about duct sizing. Proper duct sizing insures adequate air flow throughout the house and will insure the equipment is working like it was designed to. Experts state that well over 50% of ducts in the US are not properly sized for the equipment. The worst offender is an under sized return air duct and grill. Improper air flow can be noisy and even shorten the life of your equipment.5. Beware of "to good to be true" deals. It's not common, but sometimes you might find someone who is trying to sell you stolen equipment. Or, they tell you that they could do it cheaper than the company they work for "after work" or on the weekend. The initial install or repair might be cheaper, but you will end up paying more in the long run. An HVAC company will not honor warranty on stolen equipment or work done "on the side" even if the person worked for them. 6. Internet sales. If you buy equipment or parts on the internet, you need to be aware of the fact that most manufacturers will not honor the warranty on that part or piece. Always deal with a reputable contractor.7. Watch out for service personnel that are "parts changers." They are not true professionals and often lack the education and instrumentation needed to make a proper diagnosis of equipment that is not working properly. Copeland is the largest compressor manufacturer in the US and they state that over 50% of compressors returned for warranty actually work properly. The same applies to circuit boards in furnaces. These people just keep changing parts until something works. This can cost you a bundle.
