Whether you have a furnace, a heat pump, or some other form of heating system, it is a critical and expensive part of your home. In Savannah, you probably use it every day during the winter. It’s normally a good idea to let a trained and licensed heating technician make any and all repairs or adjustments to your heating system. Below we explore a couple reasons why that is.
Probably one of the most important reasons why you should let a heating professional work on your heater is for safety reasons. Without the proper qualifications there are several health and safety risks that could result from attempting to do-it-yourself.
- Gas Leaks – If you have a gas-fired heating system, you may unwittingly puncture the gas line to your home. You could also accidental damage other parts of your heating system. A trained professional can ensure that your system functions safely.
- Regulations – Depending on what you’re attempting to do to your heating system, there may be municipal, state or federal regulations stipulating exactly how a certain repair or adjustment needs to be made. Without being familiar with such regulations, you could send your entire system out of code.
Did You Fix the Problem or Reduce the Symptom?
We see this happen quite a bit. If you detect that part of your ductwork is leaking and you fix it, you may have just put a band aid on a larger problem that will continue to exist. Without the proper training and knowledge, you may end up spending time and money that could have been put to better use elsewhere. A trained heating technician will know exactly what to look for to solve your problem. In addition, they will be able to detect if a small problem is actually evidence of a larger and more extensive issue.
