How to Avoid Being Scammed

                                                                                                                   FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE



Actual Air Conditioning Scams are Rare, But Consumers

Should Still Take Precautions Warns Contractor



(Abingdon, VA.) – Terry Boone, owner of Perfect Air of Abingdon offers tips consumers can use to protect themselves from air conditioning scams.


“Every spring, television news programs conduct stings of air conditioning companies in an attempt to find scam artists,” says Boone.  “In reality, scam artists are fairly rare within the industry and tend to be fly-by-night operations.  Our industry suffers from more incompetence and ignorance than larceny.”


Still, Boone says it is a good idea for consumers to take precautions.  “Look for established companies,” advises Terry.  “Trust the recommendations of friends.  Look for NATE certified technicians.  Ask for fixed prices before work begins, not open-ended quotes.”


Boone says that one of the worst things a consumer can do is select a company, at random, from the yellow pages.  “It’s like a lottery,” says Boone.  “You might as well throw a dart at a dartboard.”


To help consumers identify competent and qualified contractors, Perfect Air of Abingdon has established a guide for consumers to use when selecting a contractor.  Included in the guide are checklists for service, for equipment replacement, and a list of things consumers should beware.  Contact Perfect Air of Abingdon at 623-1100, or visit our website ComfortByPerfectAir.com for a free copy.
