Why You Must Only Hire Professionals for Heating Service

Of course, we want you to call us when you need an HVAC company in Covington, GA. But we also want you to know why you need professionals like us when you have problems with your heater and need help. 

You have other options when it comes to heating repair: You can try to fix the problem yourself. You can look to a local neighborhood “handyperson” who “knows a few things” to see what they can do. Or you can call an unlicensed heating contractor who offers super cheap prices but says they can get the job done.

Please don’t take any of these options! Professionals HVAC technicians are the only people to turn to, and for some excellent reasons:

1. They’ll keep you safe

Safety is always the top priority when it comes to heating services. Most homes in the area rely on natural gas furnaces for winter heat, and work on any natural gas-powered appliance is potentially hazardous without the proper training and tools. In fact, it might be illegal in your local jurisdiction for a non-licensed person to work on any appliance connected to a gas main. You put your family at risk when you allow for amateur work on your heating system.

2. They have insurance to protect you

In order to have an HVAC license, a contractor must be able to show they have sufficient levels of insurance. This insurance is to protect the customer in case something goes wrong on-site. An injured worker or damage to the house may end up costing the customer because the contractor didn’t have the proper insurance. This isn’t a chance you want to take—make certain you have a fully-insured contractor. 

3. They have the best tools and know how to use them

The technology of heating and air conditioning advances constantly, and the only people who will have the best tools to get repair jobs and other services done are the professionals. Not only do pros have the best tools available to them, but they’re also trained on them and receive continuing training to keep up with the newest advances. 

4. They take responsibility

If you bring in an amateur fly-by-night contractor for a repair, they may do a quick fix that seems to get the job done, and then leave and you’ll never hear from them again. This is a problem because that “repair” they did has a good chance of failing because of the sloppy job they did. Professionals take responsibility for their work, and they’ll follow up when a customer isn’t satisfied. 

5. They save you time and money

The “appeal” of amateur or DIY work is that it will save time and money. But they actually do neither. Poor workmanship on a heating system means having to call in other people to fix the problem later, and there goes that time and money. Professionals will never rush a job, but they’ll still get the work done in a timely manner, and they’ll get it done right so you won’t need them again.
