Which Certifications Matter in the AC Industry

Monday, June 22nd, 2020

We mention a lot on this blog about hiring a professional HVAC technician with the right credentials, but sometimes we don’t specify what those credentials are or what they mean.

Certifications matter, and more specifically, certain certifications matter more than others. If an amateur technician is willing to do a job for cheaper but the only qualifications they have to show for their expertise is a degree in computer science, then maybe you should reconsider.

Heaters are not toys. When you risk neglecting them or performing some repair on them when you’re not qualified, the price is worth much more than some homeowners are willing to pay for. Toys, especially ones that are handled by toddlers and small children, are meant to be broken, whereas a heater is supposed to last as long as possible before it breaks.

Today, we’d like to inform anyone who was thinking of performing a risky maneuver or found some information online about ways to save money with space heaters—that these might not be as efficient solutions as you think. Saving money is always a good thing, but high risk, high reward procedures aren’t usually the best way to save.

So buckle up and let your local HVAC contractor in Mandeville, LA bestow some knowledge on common costly heater misconceptions.
