Why You Need an HVAC Technician With Proper Credentials

Have you ever had a well-meaning friend or relative offer to repair your air conditioner? If so, you may be grateful for the offer of help. But you should never have anyone who isn’t licensed work on your air conditioner.

There’s a reason that laws are in place to ensure only licensed and certified professionals work on air conditioners, and that’s to protect you as a consumer. You can keep reading to learn more about why it’s so important to have an HVAC technician who knows what they are doing. When you do need service for HVAC in Boulder, please give our team a call to help out.

Prioritize Safety

The number one priority when working on an air conditioner needs to be safety. Your air conditioner contains refrigerant, which is a hazardous chemical when it is outside of the airtight lines. It also uses electricity, which requires an entirely separate skillset.

All of the intricate components have to work together and the knowledge base for handling air conditioner maintenance, repairs, and installation is vast. We encourage you to decline help from well-meaning friends and relatives who offered to save you some money over scheduling professional service. 

Partnering with someone who does not have the proper certifications can leave you at great risk for major safety hazards. This includes during the time of installation and even afterward if they do something incorrectly.

Get the Job Done Right

And that brings us to our next point. When you hire a professional AC technician, you ensure that the job is done right the first time. Our team works on air conditioners all spring and summer long, and even during the off-season. We know air conditioners inside and out and have years of experience that we apply when working on your individual unit.

Have Peace of Mind

On the off chance that something does go wrong during a maintenance or repair appointment, we do offer a service guarantee. If you continue experiencing the same problem, or something happened shortly after our team leaves, we will come back and look at your unit again. 

You don’t get this with just anybody. There’s no service guarantee when you have a friend or relative do something to your air conditioner. If anything goes wrong, you may still be left calling our team for a service appointment after the fact. 

Plus, individual components often come with their own warranty when you partner with a professional. These periods can be anywhere from 30 days to several years, depending on what it is. This is an added layer of protection that guarantees if something unusual goes wrong, it will be covered and you won’t be left fixing the same problem again and again with money out of your own pocket.
