Some homeowners here in the greater San Antonio area try to hire unlicensed contractors to work on their heating systems. The following provides the reasons why this is a bad idea that can be a dangerous practice.
1. Heating Professionals Are Knowledgeable
Heating system contractors and technicians are highly trained and experienced in dealing with older and newer state-of-the-art heating systems. They know how to properly size your heating system to meet the needs of your home.
They also understand how to make your heating system run at its peak efficiency when you invite them in for your annual heating maintenance appointment. Additionally, they know about a dizzying array of brands, parts, and specifications in order to keep your heating system running at its peak.
2. Heating Professionals Keep Your System Safe
Hiring unlicensed people to work on heating systems is just asking for trouble. Many furnaces run on natural gas, which is explosive. Workers who are not highly trained and/or licensed can fail to read the warning signs of safety problems. When this happens, your family can be put in harm’s way due to the releases of carbon monoxide or gas or by frayed electrical wires. Your family’s safety is no place to cut corners.
3. Heating Professionals Are Licensed, Bonded, and Insured
If you don’t hire a state licensed and insured heating contractor, you may not be able to get any money reimbursed if they perform shoddy work. In the unlikely event that a licensed heating professional causes damage to your home in any way, they are insured to reimburse you for the damages.
