Why Should I Hire a Qualified Technician?

Let’s face it. Nobody likes to fork out money when they don’t have to. And when it comes to hiring someone to fix a problem in our home we don’t want to be taken advantage of. We all agree on that. However, there is a temptation to get things fixed for the absolute cheapest price possible, even if it means hiring someone with no license or questionable experience and references. In the interest of protecting the investment you have in your home, we here at Kelly’s Heating & Air want you to consider why you should hire a qualified technician.

A leak from a condensate pipe or fitting that you can buy for less than a dollar can easily result in water damage that will cost thousands of dollars, not to mention disruption to your family’s activity for a week or more.

Hiring a licensed, insured, master technician, or their well-trained apprentice, is a no-brainer and can mitigate such disasters. But the field of residential heating and air contractors is extensive so not all companies can even handle all types of work. A simple way to break down their activities is to put them into two categories: There are technicians who do not use manufacturers start-up and safety test procedures resulting in 50% or more energy waste and way too often unnecessary catastrophic repair expenses.

Having a ‘qualified technician’ in your list of contacts is a good idea.  Emergencies will happen, it is inevitable. National, state, and local code requirements are just a small part of what a technician even needs to know. They also need to know proper work procedures, parts, tools and have the experience to get the job done.  

But prepare yourself for these emergency situations by establishing a relationship with a qualified technician before an emergency arises. If possible, consider hiring Kelly’s Heating & Air with our good references to do emergency and nonemergency repairs, and or system replacements and or enhancements during, 24/7 365-days a year, Monday thru Sunday.
