Don’t Call an Amateur to Service Your Heater: How This Can Cost You

When you’re in need of heating service, your first concern may be the cost. A lot of people call around from contractor to contractor looking for the lowest cost for a heating installation or service. But this simply is not the way to do it when you want to save money, especially since you may pay more on monthly heating costs and future repairs if you allow someone with little or no experience to service your heater. Learn more about the value of quality of heating service here!

A Mistake Can Cost You

The risk you take by hiring an amateur is that this person may not have any idea of what they are doing! A little mistake will just cost you more to fix, negating the original “money-saving benefits” of hiring an amateur. Someone with little or no experience could install a safety switch incorrectly, so that the heater keeps shutting off. Or, this person might not add the proper amount of refrigerant to a new heat pump, forcing the system to run inefficiently.

Whether it’s a new installation, a repair, or even a routine maintenance check, you should call a company who has been around for a while. An experienced contractor will give you an honest assessment of your system, present you with all of your options, keep you informed, and make sure you know how to maintain your system. Your technician will know the best ways to keep your system running efficiently so that you save as much money as possible.

Think of Your Safety

One of the major concerns of an amateur heating installation or service, especially concerning gas heaters, is that installing or servicing it incorrectly could become dangerous. A poorly installed ignition system could potentially allow for gas leaks. And a crack in the heat exchanger may allow carbon monoxide to leak into the home, and this could become deadly. Certified heating experts know exactly how to avoid these possibilities (but be sure to schedule annual heating system inspections, just in case).
