It’s that time of year—fall is upon us and temperatures are cooling. Soon enough, HVAC professionals throughout our area will be busy with maintenance and repair calls.
Are you looking to have a new heater installed this year? Or perhaps you need to schedule a tune-up for your existing system? Whatever the case, the best time to address this is now, before it becomes too hard to get an HVAC technician out at a time that’s most convenient for your schedule.
But we don’t mean you should rush to find someone. In fact, rushing to find an HVAC professional could leave you with someone who’s not a professional at all. You could wind up with inefficient and ineffective heating, and/or high service costs. So, we encourage you to take your time and consider the following factors when choosing the right HVAC company for your needs.
Many homeowners think it’s alright to call in any ol’ handyman or handywoman with a little bit of experience on mechanical and electrical devices to service their HVAC system. This is only going to end in problems for you—if not right away then definitely later on down the line.
Heating systems in particular are complex, especially if they’re gas-powered. If a mistake is made, it could lead to hazards and other problems that will leave you calling a different company anyway to fix the mistakes.
Your safety comes first! The only technicians who can ensure that is the case are those who have been extensively trained and are properly licensed and insured.
If you buy a car from a dealership, you expect to be able to get your maintenance and repair service needs done at that dealership, right? You should expect the same from your HVAC company. When looking for HVAC contractors, select one who offers installation and repair.
Otherwise, you may get a company who sells you a system and puts a heater in, but if a problem occurs due to faulty installation or faulty equipment, you can’t call them to come back. You then have to search for another company to fix the problem.
Is the HVAC contractor you’re looking at available in emergency situations? This is vital for your comfort. You need a contractor you can trust to call in late or weekend hours if you have a completely broken down heater (or air conditioner for that matter). We are that contractor!
