Keeping Your HVAC System Free and Clear

After our heater stopped working altogether last winter, we realized that it might be time to consult with a professional. We called a family friend who is also an HVAC contractor and he came out right away to see what he could do. After taking a look at things, he told us that our vents were almost completely blocked with dust and dirt. He recommended a vent cleaning company to come out and help, and they removed loads of debris the next day with specialized suction tools. After that, our HVAC system ran almost perfectly. This blog is all about the importance of keeping your HVAC system free, clear, and functional.

Time For A New Heater? Why You Need A Licensed Contractor For The Project

If you need to invest in a new heater for your home, you have a couple of options for the installation. Your first option is to do the job for yourself. Your second option is to hire an unlicensed contractor for the job. Your final option is to hire a licensed HVAC contractor for the job. While you may think that choosing one of the first two options is best for the project, that's not necessarily the case. Here are three reasons why you need to hire a licensed HVAC contractor.

Ensure HVAC Safety

When it comes to installing your new heater, you need to make sure that safety comes first, both during the installation and once the heater is operational. Unfortunately, attempting the installation on your own or trusting the process to an unlicensed contractor could put you at risk for serious safety issues. First, you could suffer serious injuries during the installation process. Second, your heater may not be installed properly, which could increase the risk for carbon monoxide leaks or heater fires. To avoid those risks, trust your heater installation to a licensed HVAC contractor. 

Save Time and Money

If you thought that you'd save time and money by attempting your heater installation as a do-it-yourself project or by hiring an unlicensed contractor for the installation, you may find out that you're wrong on both counts. Heater installations require precision that can't be accomplished as a do-it-yourself project or through the use of an unlicensed contractor. In fact, you may find that accidents and missteps increase the cost of the project, as well as the time that it takes to complete the installation. However, when you hire a licensed HVAC contractor for the installation of your heater, you'll save time and money. That's because the project will get done right the first time. 

Avoid Liability Issues

If you've decided to hire an unlicensed contractor for the installation for your new heater, you may find yourself facing unexpected liability issues. This is particularly true if the contractor you hire isn't properly insured or bonded. If accidents occur during the installation, your unlicensed contractor won't have the insurance to cover the damage or the injuries. To avoid liability issues, you need to hire a licensed HVAC contractor. Not only will they have the insurance and bonding to cover damages, but they'll also provide warranty coverage for the work they perform.
