Integrity, Transparency & Honesty: The cornerstones of a reputable AC repair service
Before you commit to a service provider, ensure that their practices are aligned with these three pillars. Below are the questions you should be asking.
1. Are you licensed and insured?
A reputable service provider should have a valid state license and insurance. These are non-negotiable credentials that protect both the technician and you in case of any mishaps or accidents. Comfort One is licensed and bonded contractor by the State of Arizona (License #:308978)
2. Do you provide written estimates?
Transparency starts with a clear, written estimate that outlines labor costs, parts, and other fees. At Comfort One, we provide detailed and written estimates that leave no room for hidden charges. Before any of our AC repairs are started, we discuss the estimate with you and wait for your approval.
3. What kind of parts do you use?
The quality of parts used can drastically affect the longevity and efficiency of your AC system. Nowadays many parts are produced in China and do not come with any type of warranty. We recommend to look for services that use American quality parts, just like we do at Comfort One.
4. Are reviews and references available?
Customer reviews and testimonials give you insights into actual customer experiences. They help you understand if the AC repair service provider walks their talk. We are proud of our 100% customer satisfaction rate and openly share our customer reviews. Read our Google reviews here.
5. What’s your turnaround time?
When your AC is down, time is of the essence, especially in the Arizona heat. Check how promptly the service can attend to your needs. At Comfort One, we’re committed to being “On Time, Every Time!”. Some of our reviews even say ‘Jessica was the only one to actually answer the phone.’.
6. Do you offer a warranty?
A reliable service provider stands behind their work. Always inquire about warranty options for parts and labor. We protect all our AC repairs with robust warranty options, because your peace of mind is our commitment. We generally offer a 90-day labor warranty and 1-2 year warranty on parts under the premise ‘Love it or we fix it’.

If we can increase efficiency, we will discuss additional options with you. If your AC unit is more than 10-15 years old or not worth the cost of repairing, we may recommend replacement.

5. What are some common AC repairs?
Some common AC repairs include recharging the refrigerant, repairing or replacing the fan motor or compressor, cleaning or replacing clogged or dirty filters or coils, and fixing leaks in the refrigerant system. These repairs can vary in cost depending on the specific issue and the type of air conditioner you have.
6. What should I check before calling for an AC repair?
Before calling for an AC repair, there are several things you can check to try to diagnose the problem with your air conditioner. These include:
- checking the power supply to make sure that your AC is receiving power
- checking the thermostat settings to make sure they are set correctly
- checking for clogs or blockages in the vents or ducts that could be restricting airflow
- and checking for ice or frost buildup on the coils or other components of your AC system.
7. When should I have my air conditioner charged?
Your air conditioner should only need to be charged if it is low on refrigerant due to a leak in the system. If you notice that your AC is not cooling as effectively as it used to or if you see ice or frost buildup on the coils or other components of your AC system, these could be signs that you need to have your AC charged. It’s important to have any leaks repaired before recharging your AC to prevent further loss of refrigerant.
8. What does it mean if my air conditioner freezes up?
If your air conditioner freezes up, it means that ice has formed on the evaporator coil or other components of your AC system. This can happen for several reasons, including low refrigerant levels, restricted airflow, or problems with the fan or compressor. If you notice that your AC is freezing up, it’s important to turn it off and call a professional to diagnose and repair the problem.
9. Do I repair or replace my AC?
Whether to repair or replace your AC will depend on several factors, including the age and condition of your AC system, the cost of repairs, and the potential energy savings from upgrading to a more efficient model. In general, if your AC is more than 10 years old and requires frequent or expensive repairs, it may be more cost-effective to replace it with a newer, more efficient model. A professional HVAC technician can help you evaluate your options and make an informed decision.
10. What if my AC won’t turn on?
If your AC won’t turn on, there are several things you can check before calling for an AC repair. These include checking the power supply to make sure that your AC is receiving power, checking the thermostat settings to make sure they are set correctly, and checking for tripped circuit breakers or blown fuses. If you’ve checked these things and your AC still won’t turn on, it’s time to call a professional for help.
