DIY heating repairs are more accessible than ever thanks to the internet, but are they really worth it? We’d maintain that the answer is “No.”
A professional offers more than just certainty of a job done right. They can help you prevent further problems and even catch warning signs invisible to the untrained eye. While there are some heating system maintenance jobs you can do alone, like changing your air filter, repairs are better left to a licensed technician.
Here’s what you can expect from our professional heating repair in Staten Island.
1. Greater Efficiency
There are a lot of technicalities DIYers don’t expect, and skipping over one step can force you to backtrack and lose hours on a single job. You may even wind up facing more repairs if you aren’t sure how to properly disassemble or replace a certain component.
Our technicians always get the job done right. We are always thorough and complying with the industry’s best practices. We have the tools, techniques, and know-how to make quality system repairs without taking up unnecessary time.
2. Better Customer Protection
Professional HVAC repairmen carry insurance, so you always have peace of mind when they’re working on your system. If something breaks by your own hand, however, you have to face the full cost of repairs as well as any medical expenses.
Greater protection comes from your technician’s knowledge. They can give you helpful tips that make maintenance easier on your end without costing you a dime.
3. Fewer Safety Hazards
Our team knows how to safely perform any repair or installation. On your own, or with an unlicensed handyman, you run the risk of everything from physical injury to electrical fires and to a gas leak (if you have a gas-powered heater). When it comes to your family’s safety, there’s no such thing as being over-qualified.
4. Warranty Protection
Did you know that if you make DIY repairs and break your heater, it could null its warranty? Regular service and professional repairs protect your investment in your heating system. You should have documentation of every job to prove you haven’t done anything to compromise your system.
5. Maximized System Lifespan
The average heater lasts up to 15 years, but you may notice some troubles start to arise around the 10-year mark. The role of a professional technician isn’t just to fix problems. This individual can also optimize your equipment to keep it running in perfect condition for as long as possible.
Extending the lifespan of your HVAC means replacing old parts before they break and cause permanent damage; it also means having regular tune-ups to ensure your system never works harder than it needs to.
Repairs Whenever You Need Them
If you ever find yourself wondering when to call for heater repair services, it’s always best to be proactive. Even minor problems can eventually lead to full system breakdowns. Fixing your heating system on your own can be far more complicated than you think. Rather than risk additional trouble, go with service from a pro.
