Proof of Licensing and Insurance

Honest contractors will typically put their licensing number on their website and service vehicles, but if you can’t find it easily, go ahead and ask them to furnish proof of it.

State law requires HVAC licensing for contractors. All contractors must go through proper training to obtain a license. This guarantees they have the skills and experience to safely perform heating, cooling, and ventilation tasks.

Furthermore, you’ll want to make sure that your chosen contractor is insured. Why? Because HVAC repairs and installation come with potentially dangerous risks to your home. While performing a repair or installation, a technician could damage your walls, ceilings, floors, electrical panel, and more. You’ll be liable for the repair costs if they aren't insured!

When Phoenix homeowners book service with George Brazil, they can relax knowing that all our technicians are licensed and insured.

10+ Years in Business

If a contractor has been in business for more than ten years, you can trust that they value doing right by their customers.

Pushy sales tactics, dishonest pricing, and scams don’t work out long-term. Eventually, word gets around within the local community, and customers wise up to a contractor’s shady practices.

On the other hand, a contractor with integrity will want to keep their customers happy by providing clear pricing and quality workmanship.

NATE-Certified Technicians

When you hire a contractor to perform heating or cooling repairs, maintenance, or new system installations, you want to ensure a job is done right the first time.

The best way to guarantee safe and accurate workmanship is to hire a NATE-certified contractor. Standing for “North American Technician Excellence,” this is the highest level of training possible.

To obtain a NATE certification, technicians must demonstrate expert knowledge of heating, ventilation, air conditioning, and refrigeration by passing exams and field tests. It’s a rigorous program usually only taken by true HVAC professionals.

At George Brazil, all of our technicians are NATE-certified. From AC tune-ups and furnace installations to duct sealing, cleaning, and more, our technicians can complete any job with knowledgeable, exceptional quality workmanship.

100% Satisfaction Guarantee

A core tenet of quality customer service is complete satisfaction. The last thing you want is to pay for shoddy repair work only to find out that your contractor won’t return to fix it.

To avoid dealing with shady contractors, we recommend finding one that offers an iron-clad 100% satisfaction guarantee. If anything falls short of your expectations, you can have peace of mind that they’ll make it right.

Every job performed by George Brazil technicians is backed by 100% satisfaction. We’ve been around long enough to know that mistakes can happen, so you can rest assured you’ll never pay for repeat labor if something goes wrong.
