To find a good air conditioning technician, consult services such as Angie's List or HomeAdvisor.com to find local professionals rated by the service. Angie's List only lists highly rated companies and allows members to see reviews of companies prior to hiring contractors, notes AngiesList.com. HomeAdvisor.com offers a similar service, but customers can also visit the Better Business Bureau's website and search for BBB-accredited HVAC technicians.
To search Angie's List for qualified HVAC technicians, visit the website, create an account, and then enter a location into the search tool, suggests AngiesList.com. Set the parameters for the project, and then review contractors in the area providing HVAC service. Read reviews from other members and see Angie's List's rating for the providers.
To find local HVAC technicians via HomeAdvisor.com, navigate to the website, choose Heating and Cooling from the drop-down Choose a Type of Service menu and enter a ZIP code in the location box before clicking Find Pros. Choose a project type from the list presented, enter a ZIP code again and follow the prompts to narrow the search. View the contractors in the area and their contact details.
Search for BBB-accredited HVAC installers by visiting BBB.org, selecting a region from the drop-down menu and entering the keyword "HVAC" into the search box along with a city and state combination to initiate the search.
