3 People Who Shouldn’t Touch Your HVAC

Has your Pearland, Texas, home’s HVAC system malfunctioned? In your haste to get it repaired, don’t make your problem worse. Learn why you should call certified professionals for service and who you shouldn’t ask to service your system.

An Unqualified Technician

You can be certain that technicians with North American Technician Excellence, or NATE, certification have the basic skills necessary to repair your heating and cooling equipment. NATE requires certified technicians to stay up-to-date on the latest HVAC models and industry trends.

Without NATE qualifications, your technician may lack the skills to get the job done and could make an heating or cooling problem worse.

A DIY-Savvy Neighbor

Unless your neighbor is a NATE-certified HVAC technician, politely decline offers to fix your furnace or air conditioner. Maintenance tasks, such as changing air filters and unclogging drain lines, can easily be completed by someone with DIY knowledge. However, HVAC equipment has complex parts, and any repairs are best left to the professionals.

A qualified technician is familiar with equipment dangers and risks. While you may think it’s convenient to have a neighbor fix your HVAC system, call an experienced professional instead.

A Suspicious Contractor

When you choose an HVAC contractor to repair your system, you should feel confident the person can put your needs first. Suspicious behavior, such as providing a quote over the phone without examining your system or failing to recommend energy-efficient devices, are a sign you’re dealing with an untrustworthy company.

If you feel like a contractor is more focused on making money than helping you with repairs, don’t pursue any further services. By allowing a suspicious contractor to evaluate your home or repair your HVAC system, you could be paying for expensive equipment, services, or phony repairs you don’t need.

At Davis Air Conditioning and Heating, our NATE-certified technicians commit themselves to excellent service for our customers. Call 888-710-5530 in the greater Houston area (or 888-929-0049 in Brazoria County) to learn more about our HVAC services.
