When it comes to home improvements, many of us take pride in doing things ourselves. But by not hiring a professional, are we hurting ourselves in the long run?
If you’re thinking of installing a new air conditioner by yourself, it’s important to realize that it can be a much more complex job than you originally imagined. Opting to install an air conditioner by yourself can ultimately require costly repairs in the future if you aren’t 100 percent sure what you’re doing. So while a DIY mindset isn’t always a bad thing, here are three reasons why hiring a professional to install your AC is a smart choice.
Hiring a professional means that you can expect a certain degree of professionalism. Most of us have had at least one bad experience with an unprofessional technician, and those experiences leave us with a bad taste in our mouths. You don’t need to do business with anyone who is not cordial and professional, and that is something you won’t have to worry about when you hire a professional technician from a reputable company.
2. Code Compliance
This is when AC installation is more than just putting the unit in place. Every professional knows that there are codes that need to be respected when it comes to AC installation. The International Mechanical Code, or IMC, governs the safety of HVAC systems. The 2015 codes will bring changes to standard HVAC design, installation and inspection.
That being said, a professional technician will know these codes and abide by them, while someone who is not familiar with these codes will not.
3. Repair and Maintenance Plans
One of the upsides of hiring a professional from a reputable AC company is the perks that come with enrolling in a maintenance plan. One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning® of Largo offers an Air Conditioning Maintenance Program called the OHAL’s Comfort Collection Plan. It includes two annual system check-ups and no service visit charges when you need a repair. There are many more benefits to being a part of this plan, so check out the details here.
