GREENVILLE, SC- March 7, 2014 – As Greenville and the Upstate continue to experience a bit of wintry weather, it’s highly unlikely that your air conditioner is a top concern. The Better Business Bureau(BBB) recommends making sure your air conditioner is working now while temperatures are still low, to ensure everything will run properly when temperatures are high.
“Air conditioning is important to think about during all times of the year,” says Vee Daniel, president and CEO of the Better Business Bureau serving Upstate SC. “Before rushing to hire the first contractor you meet, always check with the BBB beforehand and do careful research.”

Common mistakes consumers and business owners make include hiring the first contractor they find, not doing careful research and not getting all of the details of their service or repair in writing.
The BBB recommends the following tips when looking for a contractor to repair your air conditioning:
