Given the complex nature of HVAC systems, any repair or replacement work that is needed can begin to get expensive. If you’re looking for a cheap price, you may be tempted to utilize an unlicensed HVAC contractor to do the work. While this move may save you a little money in the short-term, you could find yourself with long-term problems by choosing an unlicensed Buckeye contractor. Here are a few reasons your repair or replacement work should be done by a licensed contractor.
Proof of Training
In most locales, a license is proof of at least a minimum level of training in the field of HVAC repair and maintenance. This gives you greater confidence that the work your contractor completes will be done correctly. Without this assurance, you may end up receiving repairs that don’t fix the problem, which could wind up making the problem worse than it was. A complex system requires a knowledgeable solution in the form of a licensed HVAC contractor.
Proof of Insurance
Another assurance you receive when a contractor is licensed is that they have at least a minimum level of insurance based on what is required for the area. Insurance is absolutely crucial to protect yourself should a contractor be injured while they’re working on your property. If an unlicensed contractor is injured and your homeowner’s insurance company finds out you knowingly used an unlicensed contractor, you may have a hard time getting them to pay for any costs resulting from the injury.
Hope of a Permit
If you need an HVAC contractor to complete work that requires a building permit, you may find yourself out in the cold if you don’t use a licensed contractor. Given the protections that come from licensing that have already been discussed, many locales are hesitant to issue building permits for work done by unlicensed contractors due to the inherent risks involved. If you want your building or renovation process to be smooth, a licensed HVAC contractor is the only choice.
