Your home’s heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system plays a crucial role in the comfort of you and your family. If that system breaks down you’ll want it fixed as soon as possible. However, not every mechanic is qualified to repair or replace HVAC systems. Only a fully licensed and certified technician can solve your problems if your air conditioning unit goes out this summer.
Expert Knowledge and Experience
Becoming an HVAC technician is an intensive and time-consuming process. Many states that license HVAC technicians and contractors require anywhere from two to five years minimum of on-the-job training experience. Technicians are expected to have an understanding of electrical wiring, refrigerant, combustion and airflow systems to effectively do their jobs on a daily basis. HVAC systems can pose a hazard to both contractors and home owners if improperly handled. Only trust a licensed and certified professional to keep you and your family safe.
Certified and Insured
Not only do most states require HVAC technicians to be licensed, some even offer online sites that allow you to check the status of a technician’s license before hiring them. The Texas Department of Licensing and Registration has their own license data search portal.
In order for HVAC companies to maintain their own certification and the licensing of their employees, they typically have to maintain a minimum level of insurance coverage. This ensures that any damage or accidents that occur during the repair or replacement of your system aren’t wholly the homeowner’s responsibility. The same thing can’t be said for mechanics or technicians without certification. If an uninsured contractor is injured on your property you could be held liable for any subsequent property damage and medical costs.
Protecting Your Investment
Hiring an uncertified technician or general mechanic can result in more than just an unfixed air conditioning system. Technicians without prior experience or certification are much more likely to give incorrect or downright damaging advice. A simple repair job could become a much bigger problem if you install the wrong part or remove something necessary. Some manufacturers may even void the warranty if your AC unit is worked on by an unlicensed technician. To save yourself money and future headaches, always choose a certified HVAC technician to work on your home’s air conditioning or heating systems.
