Being stuck indoors is tough when you have kids running around jumping off the walls from the sugar you used to bribe them with to be quiet for half an hour so you could get some peace. Then when it’s the middle of summer and the temperature seems to be increasing by the hour, it can be a nightmare.

It is time to phone a repair company, and quickly, this unit needs to be looked at before the household ends up walking around like sweaty Bettys.
To survive in any hot weather country, complete comfort is key and one that can be achieved by staying on top of your maintenance plan so situations like these don’t surprise you when you least expect or want them to.
Deciding on a company that will not only get the job done right, but that is trustworthy and reliable with satisfied customer reviews to set your mind at ease, is going to take a bit of research and homework.
4 Factors to look for in an AC repair company
- You may think this is a given but you’ll be surprised how many companies operate with ‘out of date’ qualifications or none at all, check if they are certified according to government regulations for trade industries.
- Customer care. The way they treat their customers shows a lot about how they perform their work, they should be willing and able to answer any questions you may have with no issues and be contactable at any time needed.
- Visit the website and see how long they have been trading, how many years have they been successfully operating? You would ideally like a company who has seen and done it all and can handle any scenario if something were to go wrong.
- While the most expensive is not necessarily always the best the same goes for the cheapest, consider your budget and opt for something mid-range to the higher end of your financial allocation.
