With the increase in heating and air conditioning companies readily available to hire in Northern Virginia, today’s consumer needs to be vigilant about who they choose. Sure, a low-cost tune-up might sound like a good deal, but beware. After watching this video, two words stand out: dishonest and incompetent.

Plus, you have to wonder… Do the capacitors really need to be replaced? Is my system really leaking freon? Do I have LRA – a locked up rotor amp (aka the unit is shot and needs to be replaced)?
