Ask him to show it, if he has one. It is mandatory for a contractor to have liability insurance. In case he harms your unit while repairing, this will cover the cost of damage repairs.

Ask for referrals: Although you do not want to devote much time in enquirer the background of the technician, at least ask him for the contacts of a couple of clients.

 Select from a couple of contractors: Contact at least three 24 hours AC service providers. Request for quotes compare them. Along with cost also compare the provision of warranties.

 People skill: Lastly, the technician should have people skill. You should feel comfortable with him when he works on your premises. He should be courteous. You should be able to ask him question and he should answer them amiably at the best of his capacities. The company should check in with you to ensure you are satisfied with their work, because it is their goal to create happy customers each and every time you make a service call.
