When a person hears the phrase “HVAC repairs” it may create a sense of dread and panic. There is no question that many heating and cooling repairs are quite costly, not to mention time-consuming and often uncomfortable. When a homeowner calls out a service provider to evaluate the problem, they may be tempted to call another company for a second opinion – especially if the repair is extensive or expensive. While there are times when this may be appropriate, when it comes to HVAC system repairs, it isn’t the best course of action. Some of the reasons this is true are highlighted here.
The Problem May Get Worse
Regardless of the time of year, it is, most HVAC companies stay busy. With constant service and repair calls, it may take a homeowner several days – or more – to have another company come out and inspect the issue. If the system continues to be used during this time, there is a good chance that a complete failure is going to occur. In the long run, this is only going to cost more to have repaired.
Delayed Repair Times
After the second opinion, if the homeowner decides to us the services of the first company, they may experience another delay in the repairs. This is because, as stated before, most HVAC companies remain busy throughout the year. This creates the potential for even more issues to develop, resulting in even more repair costs. This can be avoided when the first company is able to begin work right away.
Sub Par Services and Increased Costs
If you opt for a second opinion, and the service provider knows they are the second opinion, they may try to undercut the repair costs simply to get the job. This likely means they are going to offer sub-par services, which mean you are only going to need more repairs down the road.
On the other hand, they may claim to have the ability to provide the needed repairs at a lower cost and then when the final bill arrives, have all sorts of miscellaneous charges present. In most cases, going with the initial HVAC service provider called can help ensure all of these issues are avoided. Many times, the initial provider will be able to match the second opinion and still offer great service.
