Many homeowners look for ways to save money during a heating installation, but hiring an amateur to put in the system is not the way to do this. There are other ways to save money—financing your system, for example, and choosing an efficient unit that saves you money each month so that the total cost of operation is low. But letting a handyman with little experience put in the new system may actually cost you more in the end.
A Handyman Is Not the Same as a Technician
Many people assume that hiring a “handyman” to work on their HVAC systems is just the same as hiring a technician. While a handyman may be quick to figure out manuals and make sure things are securely in place, a person with little or no HVAC experience should not be responsible for installing a heating system. Technicians train for years to learn how to install heating systems, and they have the proper certification for the work you need done.
Why Professional Installation Is So Important
Here are all of the ways it benefits you to hire a professional with plenty of experience in the industry to install your heater.
Safety: A professional technician will be able to make sure the gas line is hooked up properly to the unit, eliminating any safety concerns you may have had. Additionally, you won’t have to worry about liability issues if the handyman gets injured during the installation!
Performance and Efficiency: A system that is the proper size and that is setup just right in your home is more likely to work properly, keep you more comfortable, and use less energy. Proper sizing may seem like a small step but it is key to the life of any whole-home heater.
Lifespan: The lifespan of your heating system could actually be longer if a technician ensures it is the right size, installed properly, and well-maintained.
