We know that as a homeowner, you take pride in tackling DIY projects and want to save money. But while we believe there’s plenty to take care of yourself, some things are better left to the professionals. Trying to tackle HVAC installation, repairs, replacements, or maintenance on your own without the knowledge or experience can end up costing you more.
Here’s why you should always hire an HVAC professional for installation, repairs, replacements, and maintenance:
If you don’t have HVAC experience, then trying to install, repair, or maintain your HVAC system can be dangerous. From unmanaged mold and mildew to carbon monoxide leaks and electrical wiring issues, seemingly insignificant HVAC problems can lead to hazards that jeopardize the health of your home and family.
When you hire an HVAC professional to work with your system, you ensure that your home and family are safe and well taken care of.
Time is money, and no matter how great you are at tackling DIY projects, taking care of your HVAC system on your own will take a lot of time. From researching and diagnosing the problem to buying parts and trying to fix the issue, handling HVAC installation, repairs, or maintenance on your own will take so much longer than using an HVAC technician.
When it comes to repairs, you also risk the chance of not getting the diagnosis right the first time. A problem that might take you multiple attempts to solve will be a quick fix for an HVAC professional, saving you valuable time.
A big part of DIY solutions is saving money, but that’s usually not the case with DIY HVAC installation, repair, or maintenance. To start, you’ll have to consider the expense of buying the equipment to work with. Then there’s the risk of not getting the problem solved or having an installation done incorrectly on the first attempt.
In many cases, instead of making a problem better, you might end up causing more damage to your HVAC system, costing you even more. Even an HVAC system that isn’t installed just right by an HVAC technician can cost you more by causing up to a 30% increase in energy use.
In the long run, when it comes to HVAC installations, repairs, and maintenance opting to hire an HVAC professional is the more cost-effective choice.
Did you know there are many ways to void your HVAC warranty? Most warranties require HVAC installation, repairs, and maintenance to be carried out by licensed HVAC technicians, or they become void.
Also, most professional HVAC repairs and parts come with some type of HVAC warranty, giving you the peace of mind that your system is covered.
Your air conditioner or heater are vital to your home comfort, but they don’t work alone. The ducts, wiring, air quality, and more in your home are all connected. When you hire an HVAC professional, you work with an expert that knows how to take care of every component that relates to your HVAC system, so it runs optimally.
Better Brands and Parts
When you work with an HVAC professional, you get the best brands and parts for your home and HVAC system. Using better parts and brands ensures that your HVAC system performs optimally, lasts longer, and increases your energy savings.
An HVAC technician also comes prepared with all the best tools to take care of your HVAC system and the knowledge of how to use them.
Professional Advice and Care
An HVAC professional will do more than take care of your installation or fix a problem. When you work with a trusted HVAC company, they can provide guidance and advice on how to best take care of your HVAC system, and how to avoid future problems.
Believe it or not, HVAC accidents do occur. If you hire an amateur to save some money and something happens to them on the job, you’ll likely be responsible for the damages. When you hire a licensed HVAC professional, they’ll have insurance, so if anything goes wrong, it won’t fall on your shoulders.
If it’s time for an HVAC replacement, then working with an HVAC professional ensures that you have access to the best information on new HVAC technologies. From smart thermostats to ductless systems, no one knows more about HVAC upgrades than a trusted technician.
