When it comes to installing or servicing your HVAC system, it’s tempting to use a handyman or a friend or even to try DIY. Consider these four important reasons to hire a NATE-certified technician in Lusby, MD.
1. Improved Safety
An HVAC system has inherent risks that most people take for granted, including electrical or gas hazards. When inexperienced or untrained hands attempt to repair or install heating or air conditioning, the results can be catastrophic. For your safety, and the safety of others, you need someone who knows how to perform the work.
2. Fixed Right the First Time
One of the biggest challenges to keeping your HVAC system running well is getting it fixed right the first time. Inexperienced or untrained technicians may not dig far enough to get to the root problem. Though it may seem to resolve the issue, you’ll end up having more issues again in the near future.
3. Warranty and Insurance Protection
You want to know you’re protected by your warranty and home insurance if something happens with your HVAC system. However, if you let untrained hands work on your system, you may invalidate both of those.
Most manufacturers require that their systems receive service from certified technicians as a term of their warranties. Likewise, many insurance policies have the same requirements. Don’t assume this doesn’t apply to your system, and have a certified technician perform all service.
4. Better Efficiency
The goal of keeping your system repaired and maintained is to keep the efficiency high. Someone without proper training may inadvertently reduce the system’s efficiency while trying to solve a problem. NATE-certified technicians know how to resolve the problem while protecting the system’s efficiency.
Make sure your HVAC system is ready to serve your home for years to come. Call to schedule your heating or AC repair with a NATE-certified technician at Hancock Refrigeration Heating & Air Conditioning.
