Does the thought of hiring a repairman make you nervous? Relax, because you are in charge throughout the process. You just need to spend a little time researching and asking the right questions. Check the reviews, make a shortlist, and start making calls — the right AC contractor will become obvious when you find someone you can trust.
Online reviews can get stale, and some companies will have great reviews about services you don’t really need. Look for recent, happy customers who have hired the contractor for similar AC repairs as what you need.
Check licenses, contact references, and be diligent about the whole process. Ask the contractor and their references specific questions about your AC system and what they’ll do if the job turns out to be more difficult than it seems at first.
If you have ductless AC or a type of equipment that is less common, ask contractors about their experience working with that equipment. But everybody should try to hire an AC contractor with expertise in the job at hand. You don’t want a general handyman or someone who normally works on furnaces or commercial equipment when you only need your home air conditioner serviced.
The estimate process tells you a lot about an HVAC contractor’s professionalism and communication skills. Will they visit your home to make the estimate? Are there guarantees in writing about how they handle cost overruns? Does the contractor seem knowledgeable and comfortable about servicing the brand of equipment and the duct layout?
Companies with branded vehicles, uniformed employees, and a presence in the local community tend to be more reliable — they have a reputation at stake. It’s best to hire a contractor who wants to earn your trust, not just make a quick dollar.
AC contractors who care about energy efficiency tend to do the best job. That’s because you have to be knowledgeable about all the latest technology in order to boost energy savings, and because the health of the AC greatly affects energy efficiency. The contractor who knows how to make AC systems more energy efficient will likely do the best job in providing a clean-running, smooth-operating system.

Brandon Bowen is simply amazing. He loves what he does and it’s fun to watch him work. He came out quickly to service our A/C when it went out on a hot day. He had it fixed in no time. I would recommend Brandon and Dynamic Air Services to anyone in need of A/C service. Jason B
I had a great experience with Dynamic Air Services yesterday. The service technician, Brandon, called that he was on his way, fixed the AC problem on the spot and the cost was lower than another company’s estimate. Brandon was extremely courteous on the phone and even replaced the AC filter without me asking him. I would highly recommend this company for any AC issues. David Johnson
Brandon showed up on time and explained everything he was doing when he tested condition of my A/C. He gave me some options that I could do now to fix the problems and some things that didn’t have to be done immediately. My A/C is now running like it was brand new. I would recommend Brandon and Dynamic Air to anyone who wants a professional job done at an affordable price. Mark Nussbaum
