You have scheduled with a local company to have your aircon system serviced, or plan to do so in the very near future. The problem is you may not be exactly sure what to expect when they show up at your home. If you have never done this before, you may be nervous. The good news is that you have very little to worry about as long as the company you called was reputable in your community.
Greeting & Getting Started
When the service crew arrives at your home, it might be one person or more. Typically, you will just have one or two people show up for a basic servicing. If problems are found that need more substantial work, then you may have a larger crew show up to get the work done quickly. For this first meeting, expect a single person or perhaps a two person team. Greet them at the door just as you would a friend coming into your home.
Once inside, they will head immediately to your aircon system. You should voice any concerns that you have right away, so they can look for answers or check for problems if needed. You don’t want them to have to go back and check again after they have already done their job. Get it all out in the air right when they come in the door.
You can trust a reputable service to do their job without being monitored. You can get something done around the home while they are looking over your aircon system. They will come to you and voice any concerns or fill you in on anything they find during the process. If everything goes smoothly and there are no problems found, then you will likely just be approached at the end of the service session.
Ending the Session
Once the servicing has been completed, you will be notified of any problems found with the system. You will be informed of what needs to be done next and may be advised on a time frame for having additional check-ups or other maintenance duties for your system. It is important to pay attention to what is being said as it could impact services that you might pay for in the future.
Listen to all recommendations from the service team, but remember that you do not have to accept any repairs or future services. If you trust the service and know that they have a reputation for being honest, then you should probably just follow their recommendations. If they warn that a part needs replaced, it is crucial that you go ahead and replace it. Once you need to turn the system on and start using it during hot weather, the service provider will be very busy with repair calls and may take longer to come out and repair your system.
If you are concerned with the cost of replacement parts, consider the cost of a completely system break down on a hot summer day. In most cases, you are getting off cheap by just replacing the part when it is first found to be in need of replacement. You save tons of time as well, since you don’t have to schedule a rush repair when the part finally gives out completely.
