At Double Check Cooling and Heating, we understand that not everyone understands the importance of having an AC technician be licensed, bonded, and insured. Having these three important items means that you can trust that that the work that is being done, will be done correctly. Homeowners that hire our Double Check team tell us that they feel a sense of security knowing that the work they are receiving is also protected. Understanding the difference between these levels of protection can help you as a homeowner stay informed and feel good about the decision of going with Double Check.
What does it mean to be Licensed?
Licenses are not just handed out to just anyone, they are issued by local or state governments as required by law. The government licensing board only provides these after the contractor has demonstrated competency by passing an accredited program. Once a contractor is licensed, they are required to renew their license regularly to ensure that they meet the minimum requirements of the heating and cooling industry.
What does it mean to be Bonded?
Being bonded means that our Double Check Techs have purchased a surety bond that serves to protect you as customer, should any issues occur after completion of a job. A surety bond will compensate customers if there should ever be poor workmanship, incomplete work, or if a tech neglects to pay for the required work permits or materials. If a customer should ever feel that they received subpar or incomplete service, they can pursue a bonding company for compensation. Great news, is that most licensing boards require that technicians are bonded before they can receive a license.
What does it mean to be insured?
There are two primary purposes that a technician should hold insurance. First being that if ever an incident or damage should occur on a customer’s property during a service, the customer would be compensated. The second reason is it protects us as technicians as well if for any reason one of our techs should be hurt on at your home or property. It’s very risky to hire an uninsured contractor, because if anything should happen, it could result in you as the customer being responsible for paying for any damage or injuries sustained while the technician was on the job.
The experts at Double Check are fully licensed, bonded and insured for all these reasons. Whether you hire our team for an AC installation, and AC repair, or any other heating and cooling needs, we want our clients to have the peace of mind knowing that when they hire Double Check, that the work being done is protected and done correctly.
