How to Select the Right Heating and Air Technician

How to Select the Right Heating and Air Technician

In some industries it can be very difficult finding someone you trust to tell you the truth about what it is that is causing you problems. Heating and air conditioning repair and services can be one of those industries. A heating/air conditioning unit isn’t an inexpensive appliance, so trusting someone to tell you what could be going wrong can be a difficult task.  If you haven’t yet found a trusted heating and air technician, ask around. Word of mouth can be the best way to find a trusted and reputable heating and air company. Your good friends or family wouldn’t refer you to a company that they wouldn’t or haven’t used for themselves. If you aren’t able to find a company that your friends and family speak highly of, then it’s time to start looking on your own.

First, educate yourself a little bit about the mechanics of air conditioning/heating units as much as possible. Reading internet blogs or personal experiences from people with air or heating issues can help as well. Before calling any company, check their website first to see how long they have been in business and check if there are any reviews or testimonials on their site or review sites.  Be sure to also check that all of the air conditioning and heating technicians at their company are both licensed and insured.  Trusted companies should always be able to give you a free estimate of what the cost is going to look like, but be sure that it’s not over the phone and that they have taken the time to visit your home and inspect  the heating and air conditioning unit themselves.  Look for a company that is dependable, honest, prompt, courteous, and professional.

Customer Reviews

This was an exceptional experience! We woke up to our A/C on but not cooling (it was 6am and already 81 in the house). The person who set up our appointment was very nice, able to get us seen same-day, and let us know of some options to help save us money.

-Christy Cormier

The service from Sam and Chris was excellent! They were very knowledgeable and professional. They were able to answer all of my questions and completed all of my electrical issues. I will definitely use them again for future jobs. Thank you!

-Adrienne Beal

From the get go I could tell that the Snyder employees were truly professionals and didn’t push to make sales like other companies I’ve talked to my whole life. They took the time to explain so that I could make a decision. The installers and later the duct cleaners were very respectful during their work here. Thank you.

-Mike Daniels

Snyder Heating and AC is dependable, always on time and techs have always been courteous and knowledgeable. Emanuel was a great addition to the company. He was friendly and knew what he was doing. Thank you for great service.

-Linda Ackley

Snyder came in and did a total overhaul of our duct system. They had a great knowledge of what to do to make our home so comfortable! The technicians were all so professional and took great care of us! We’re so thankful for their expertise. Great and easy communication with the call center. We will definitely use them again!

-Crystal Hill

Snyder provided an amazing experience from start to finish. Most of us dread getting estimates with pressuring salespeople. Erik was a great guy, explained all my options and didn’t try to pressure me to act quickly! Justin followed up with my husband and I to offer further assistance in our decision. Again, no pressure, just helped with our follow up questions.

-Michele Bauer

Very prompt, professional, courteous, and cleaned up after repair. Had water line break in my front yard and no pressure. Very pleased and would highly recommend Snyder for all your plumbing, and AC needs. Thank you for making a rough morning get better with ease and professionalism.

-Chuck Jr.

Snyder was easy to get in contact with and had availability the next day. Clint came out and needed some parts so had to reschedule us for the next day for installation. He did a great job converting our old 3 knob shower to one. Looks great! Professional and courteous. 100% recommend this company, especially Clint.
