Air Conditioning Repair: What to Look For in a Good Air Con Company

It’s the peak of summer, your business is running at full steam and without any warning your air con system breaks down. It happens more than you think and you must be prepared in these situations. Before calling a company for your air conditioning repair consider these factors to make sure you have a reputable repairperson in the UK.


A high quality air conditioning repair service will have personnel who are trained and qualified with the correct certification. The first thing you can look out for is a City & Guilds qualified air con technician.

Although not imperative, consider an air con service that has membership to REFCOM for the safe handling of refrigerants in line with current legislation.

For health and safety consider certificates such as CHAS (The Contractors Health & Safety) Accreditation and ISO 9001 for quality management systems and the enhancement of customer satisfaction.

Other factors to consider include if the individual or air conditioning company are an approved contractor or part of an association such as NICEIC which means that they are assessed on a regular basis and checked against the IEE Wiring Regulations BS 7671.

Scare Tactics

If your air conditioning repair service person tries to scare you about problems about your heating and cooling system that you were unaware of then be very weary. If you feel this may be the case then definitely ask for a second opinion from a second air con repair service.

They should also let you ask questions. Although air conditioning systems in the UK are simple in their task, their mechanics are anything but. A stellar AC repair person will be able to explain the complexity of the system to your average everyday person, an estimate of time to complete and provide you with any spare parts that they had to replace. Of course, you should also receive a receipt.

Major Directories

It’s quite amazing how many air conditioning repair companies don’t add themselves to local and business directories. A reputable company will also have good reviews and plenty of details about themselves. Some of the more important directories are Yelp, Google Maps and 192. Spend time reading their about section, the types of clients they have and how long they have been in business.

Another quick tip is to find out the air conditioning repair company ever attend events, they may even add this to some of the directory pages with photos and descriptions giving you a better picture of what they’re all about.

From the directory you can call them up and ask them questions before they come out repair your unit. Try to ask a specific technical question to test them on their knowledge, make sure you know the answer though! If they refuse to talk about it or seem confused then by all means look elsewhere.
