If you’re like many homeowners, you are always looking for ways to save cash, so it might be tempting to try to install a new heating system yourself or hire the neighborhood handyman to do it for you. Unless that you are handyman is a licensed professional, you should think twice about either of those choices. Hiring a licensed HVAC contractor will always be the best option.
4 Reasons to Hire a Licensed Professional to Install Your Heating System
1. It’s Safer
A professional heating and air conditioning technician will be certified and licensed, which means they’ve had plenty of training to avoid the mistakes amateurs might make. Lots of those errors can cause injury to you or damage to your home.
2. You Get to Keep Your Warranty
Many manufacturers require heating systems to be installed by certified and licensed contractors, or the warranty becomes null and void. In other words, if you do the work yourself and the system is damaged during installation, you have to pay for a replacement or repair.
3. They Have the Right Tools
Have you ever started a do-it-yourself project, only to realize you don’t have the right tools for the job? Instead of having to pay for tools you’ll likely never use again, hire a professional who has the right tools and knows how to use them.
4. You Can Save Money
Many heating systems are sold through HVAC contractors who will offer special discounts and financing to attract your business. This means you’ll get the right system for your home, and it will be installed correctly. You’ll also avoid paying for the same work twice, a situation many homeowners who attempt a DIY job find themselves in when they need to call an expert to fix their work and do the installation all over again.
