malfunctioning air conditioning unit

When your air conditioning needs repair, choosing the right contractor is crucial. In Chicago, it’s essential that AC repair contractors are not only licensed but also have the proper certifications to ensure safe and efficient service.

Key Qualifications for AC Contractors:

  • Licensing and Certification: Ensure your AC contractor is licensed. Ask for their license number and verify it through the city of Chicago. Technicians should hold an EPA certification of class 2 or higher, indicating they can safely handle refrigerants and other hazardous materials.
  • Knowledge of Safety Protocols: The handling of refrigerants like R410A, which operate under high pressure, requires specific expertise due to the risks of explosions if mishandled. Moreover, contractors need to be aware of the dangers of phosphine gas, which can be released if refrigerant leaks are exposed to flames during repairs.
  • Experience with Local Structures: Particularly in Chicago, where many residences are in high-rise buildings, a proficient contractor needs a solid understanding of complex building structures, elevator navigation, and rooftop AC systems.
