The best kind of HVAC technician is the one who does his or her job competently and professionally, setting your system up to run effectively and efficiently. These technicians, alas, get taken for granted, since the HVAC techs you’re likely to notice and remember are the ones who do a poor job. In June, take a moment to give credit where credit’s due — thank your favorite heating and cooling service person June 22 on HVAC Tech day.
Here are some reasons to show appreciation on HVAC Tech Day:
First, quality HVAC techs make sure your heating and cooling systems are performing as intended, providing reliable comfort in your home every day of the year. When the technician shows up for the recommended annual tune-up of your HVAC equipment, they’ll clean, adjust, test and inspect the entire system, and look out for any small problems that can develop into large problems.
Second, during regularly scheduled professional maintenance visits, the technician will look for ways to optimize system efficiency. The idea here is to adjust the equipment — whether a furnace, heat pump or air conditioner — so it consumes as little energy as possible while effectively heating or cooling your home.
Thirdly, you should thank your heating and cooling technician on HVAC Tech Day for keeping you and your family safe. Furnaces, A/Cs and heat pumps, if not properly installed, maintained or serviced, can pose safety hazards, whether through a gas or carbon monoxide leak in a combustion furnace, a leaky refrigerant line in an A/C or heat pump, or a problem with the electrical system.
A trusted, quality HVAC technician not only will ensure your heating and cooling equipment are running effectively, efficiently and safely, they’ll make suggestions on how to improve HVAC energy efficiency and performance, whether through home weatherization, installing programmable thermostat, or recommending an energy-efficient upgrade. Good HVAC techs also can suggest complementary systems for air cleaning, humidity control and ventilation.
