As a homeowner in Stuart, Florida, there are many tasks you can perform to keep your HVAC system running in top condition. However, when it comes to repairs, it is best to have a professional take care of those complex HVAC tasks. Our professional technicians have advanced training, extensive knowledge, and the right tools, so you can save money over the long run when we service your HVAC system.
Professionals Have Knowledge and Tools
HVAC systems are complex and involved, and when it comes to repairs, you need to understand the inner workings of the system, including any software that runs it. Our knowledgeable and highly-trained HVAC technicians have years of experience, training, and testing and hours of on-going education so they can repair your air conditioner or heater properly. Also, professionals understand how to work with electrical components within the motor and can repair any issues safely. Trying to tamper with electrical issues and fuel problems yourself can be dangerous. Leave those repairs to professional technicians.
Specialized tools are also required to perform much of the work on your HVAC system, so it doesn’t make sense for you as the homeowner to go out and purchase those tools. Our technicians have everything needed to do the repairs properly the first time.
Professionals Have Special Certifications
Due to the complexity of HVAC systems, professional technicians must have proper training. To ensure they have undergone the proper training, they should have certifications. The gold standard of HVAC certifications is the North American Technician Excellence (NATE). To receive the certification, the technician is tested on real-world knowledge to prove their professional competency for service and installation.
The refrigerant inside of the air conditioning unit is considered a hazardous substance and requires very special handling and disposal. Because the refrigerant is so hazardous, the Environmental Protection Agency requires HVAC contractors and technicians to obtain a special certification called an EPA 608.
In addition to these important certifications, professionals undergo continuing education since the HVAC industry is rapidly evolving with new technology and software. It is always wise to hire a professional HVAC professional to perform any repairs.
Professional Servicing Won’t Void the Warranty
Most manufacturers of air conditioners, heaters, and furnaces require professional servicing to keep the warranty valid. If the repairs are done by the homeowner, a friend, or an unlicensed technician, the manufacturer may not honor the warranty and it could become void.
When you have an air conditioner, heat pump, or heater installed, you will have registered the system with the manufacturer. This helps the company ensure that a licensed HVAC contractor can perform services on any parts that are broken. Register any new equipment right away, and always call us at Grimes Heating & Air Conditioning to perform repairs on your HVAC system.
To make sure your system is serviced regularly before costly repairs are needed, consider investing in a maintenance plan. Your system will be inspected and serviced on a regular basis, and any issues will be spotted during the inspection so that the technician can fix the problem before a breakdown.
Your System Will Last Longer
With regular preventive maintenance done properly by licensed and certified professionals, your HVAC system will run smoothly on a dependable basis. If you neglect to have your system maintained, the ducting can become dirty and the filters can become clogged with dirt and dust. As a result, your system will have to work harder and harder to perform efficiently.
When the air conditioner, heat pump, or furnace has to work harder to deliver warm or cool air, strains are put on the system. This can lead to costly repairs and eventual replacement. DIY HVAC repairs can be dangerous and costly. When you call us for servicing or repairs, you will receive professional work performed with the right knowledge, tools, and training to keep your system running smoothly for years.
