Hiring an HVAC technician is an important decision, you want to work with a professional who is certified, insured and receives continuing education. When a technician comes to work on your HVAC system in your residence or business, here are a few things to look out for. Be concerned if you notice the technician not examining your whole house or business. The entire square footage should be noted by the technician. This is because every structure is different and will have different heating and cooling needs. So many factors need to be taken into account.
You don’t want to get a system that is too large or small for the space. This will shorten the lifespan of your system and has the possibility of running up your power bills. Don’t allow the technician to be lazy when he or she sizes what HVAC system is needed. A good HVAC technician needs to take insulation and other factors into account. Ventilation is crucially important and it is a mistake for technicians to not look at air circulation and positive and negative air pressure.
If your carbon monoxide alarm goes off, a technician shouldn’t just look for cracks in the heat exchanger, they should also look and test for gas and depressurization. Your technician shouldn’t take carbon monoxide leaks lightly, it is a serious situation and deserves time and attention. If you have any doubts about the technician who performs work on your system, don’t hesitate to reach out to your HVAC company and express your concerns.
