When the weather gets hot, air conditioners break. The hotter it gets, the more stress on your A/C, means more potential issues. But, unless you can tell the difference between a capacitor, a contactor and a compressor, how are you going to provide any accountability to the heating and cooling company that’s telling you it’s time for a new system? The bottom line is, you can’t. Once it’s replaced, all evidence of either willful or ignorant coercion is gone. And all you have is a working system.
You’re under duress. It’s hot, your kids or significant other are complaining. You just want the situation fixed. There are many companies that have no problem taking advantage of you. That bears repeating, these companies know that you’ll do whatever it takes, so they are perfectly willing to sell you the most expensive thing possible.
Before you buy, know these things about your system. If it doesn’t cross every one of these tests, you absolutely need to call another heating and cooling company.
