The Importance of Proper AC Maintenance
As a Florida homeowner, you know the importance of proper AC maintenance. HVAC repairs and maintenance are inevitable. From replacing air filters to maintaining your overworked HVAC system, the requirements of running an air conditioner in the Florida heat may seem never-ending. DIY-ers may want to roll up their sleeves and try tackle repairs themselves. However, for the health of your air conditioning system, hiring a licensed and trusted HVAC technician is the best solution. At-home repairs or those done by an unlicensed technician can end up costing a lot more money and frustrations in the long run.
Why should I hire a licensed HVAC professional?
Of course you can change a filter yourself (and should on a monthly basis). However, when your air conditioning system needs to be serviced, be sure to hire a licensed professional. They offer safe, long-term solutions rather than temporary fixes. Hiring an unlicensed, inexperienced company or attempting to solve the problem yourself will not only affect the quality of your repair, it can also create a dangerous situation for everyone in your home. Here are a few more reasons to call a professional the next time you have an HVAC maintenance or repair need:
- Licensed HVAC technicians must undergo examinations that test their education, skill and compliance with OSHA laws and regulations.
- Licensed professionals will always demonstrate a proper inspection of your HVAC system before beginning repairs. In addition, they will utilize the correct equipment and materials.
- Unlicensed contractors that attempt residential repairs and maintenance are breaking the law. If unlicensed contractors fail to provide proper certification, there’s little chance that they will follow or comply with any other laws and regulations.
- As an extra security, licensed technicians purchase bonds as an insurance to the consumer. This covers any damages that may occur in the process of important home repairs and maintenance.
- Furthermore, licensed contractors are required to have Worker’s Compensation Insurance. However, this is not the case for an unlicensed contractor. That means any harm that may come to workers while on your property becomes your responsibility.
