“Safety First” in Home Air Conditioning

Arizona homeowners take many factors into consideration when looking to hire an air conditioning contractor for service or replacement – cost, availability, reputation – to name a few. But just as important when choosing an air conditioning company to work with is safety. Does the company have the skills, knowledge and training to come into your home and do the job in the safest manner?

Here are a few safety items you should consider when selecting an air conditioning contractor:

  • Does the contractor have the proper licensing? Arizona requires companies that install and repair comfort air conditioning systems to have the proper licensing through the Arizona Registrar of Contractors.
  • Has the company been in business a long time? It makes sense that a company with the best safety practices will have built up a positive reputation over many years of service.
  • What do other customers say about the company? Other customers aren’t shy about sharing both positive and negative experiences with a company. Check out the company’s website for customer testimonials or visit online review sites and search for safety feedback on a contractor.
  • When in doubt, ask. What kind of safety training does the contractor provide to employees? Has the contractor had any accidents or other safety issues in the past year? A contractor that is dedicated to safety will be happy to share information with you on their safety training and record.

When it comes to the safest, most trustworthy air conditioning contractor in Arizona, the choice is clear. Chas Roberts Air Conditioning & Heating, which is celebrating its 70th year, has recently received the GOLD Safety Award from Liberty Mutual insurance company.

This is the highest level of recognition for safety that Liberty Mutual awards and Chas Roberts is proud to receive this award for the second year in a row.
