If you are looking for a new Air Conditioner or your existing unit needs repair or maintenance services, you want the expertise of a trustworthy and capable company. Of course, you also want a quality product at an affordable price, as well as quality service. But do you actually know what to look for in an air conditioning company? Let’s have a look at what to consider!

All in one hand

It’s true; this blog post is dedicated to the question of what to look for in an air conditioning contractor. However: Ideally, you want your air conditioning partner to be a one-stop shop! That means that if even the repair efforts of your air conditioning contractor do not work anymore or your unit has simply become too old, you don’t want to shop around for too long to find a place where you can buy a new AC.

On the other hand, if you purchase a new unit, you need someone to install it as well. In addition, you want to be able to call the same company for repair and maintenance of your system. After all, these are the people who already know the product!

Key Criteria for an AC Company

Air conditioning is a must for us to stay comfortable in our homes and offices. It’s important to find a reliable and knowledgeable contractor to ensure that your AC is working properly. But how do you know which contractor to choose? Knowing what to look for in an air conditioning contractor can help you make sure that you get the best service possible.

The first step in selecting an air conditioning contractor is to research their credentials and experience. You want to make sure that you are hiring a contractor with the necessary experience and qualifications to do the job right. It’s important to consider the contractor’s years of experience, areas of expertise, and any certifications or awards they may have received. You should also check to see if the contractor is licensed, insured, and bonded. This will help ensure that the contractor is reputable and can be held accountable for any problems that may arise during the course of the job. Additionally, you should look up reviews and ratings online. This will give you an idea of the contractor’s customer service and the quality of their work.

In Summary:

  • Experience: How long has the company been in business?
  • Licensed, bonded, and insured: Are they properly trained and certified to do the job? What about potential liability issues?
  • Reputation: What do previous/current customers have to say about the company’s services and products?
  • Customer Service: How easy is it to talk to somebody? Is the staff attentive, friendly, and competent? Are they willing to work with you to find a product/service that best suits your needs and budget? 

What to look for in an Air Conditioning Contractor – and where to find the information you need


When it comes to contractors, experience is certainly a good thing! That’s why you can usually find information like that on the company’s website, for example, in the “About us” section. In our own “About us” area, you will find that  Action Air Conditioning was founded in 1988!

Licensed, Bonded, and Insured:

Before you hire an air conditioning contractor, it’s important to make sure that they are properly licensed and insured. This will protect you in case of any unexpected damages or injuries. You should also make sure that the contractor is properly licensed by the business administration of the state they do business in. In our case, that’s, of course, Florida, and we are licensed under the number: #CAC042730. In most cases, you should be able to find this information on your contractor’s website. If that’s not the case, make sure to ask them!


Finding out if previous customers are happy or not with what the air conditioning company has to offer is pretty easy these days. A quick online search will probably give you a first idea of what others have to say. For more targeted research, check review sites like Yelp or Trustadvisor. If the testimonials are positive, many companies will likely present a few of them on their website as well. And yes, we do have such a “Testimonials” section on our website. Feel free to check them out!
