When to Call in Your Heating Contractor

hello-winterWhen you live anywhere with temperatures as cold as ours get here in Virginia, it is of the utmost importance that you have a heating contractor that you can trust. Reading this right now means that you’ve found one. That doesn’t mean, necessarily, that you know when you should be reaching out to us, though. As a general rule, you should be contacting us, your trusted HVAC contractor in Charlottesville, VA, whenever you need services.

We will get into that a bit more below. First, we just want to reiterate the fact that we know there are a lot of very capable, hands-on homeowners out there. And that’s great, to a certain degree. It is the best and most responsible homeowners that recognize their own limitations, though. There is no amount of online tutorials that you can watch which will give you the skill and expertise that our trained, professional technicians possess. When it comes to your heater, work with the pros.

You Need an Installation or Replacement

Installing a heating system in a brand new home may be just one project out of many that the construction demands, but it is an important one. You need to be absolutely certain that you have trained, knowledgeable professionals working with you if you want to be certain that your new heater will function as reliably, efficiently,  and effectively as possible. That means working with us!

Don’t trick yourself into thinking that a heating replacement is any easier of a job, though. Sure, there will be some infrastructure in place that you can integrate the new system into, but the sizing of your new system and the installation itself is still just as tricky, and important, as it is when installing a new system in a new home.

You Need Maintenance

You can read the heading above in two ways. Meaning that you should call us when you need maintenance, and also as its own directive—you need maintenance! Our maintenance program is here to help you keep your heating system in the best working condition possible. The last thing that you want is for your heater to break down when you need it most, or for it to cost more to run than it should. That is what you risk when you fail to schedule annual maintenance, though.

Furthermore, remember that there is actually one step that you need to take on your own. You don’t need to call in trained professionals to change your air filter as needed. While the bulk of heating maintenance is a job for the pros, you can help to keep your system working at peak levels by changing your filter regularly.

You Need Repairs

You can do an internet search of the heating system symptoms that you’re currently running into. You may even be able to figure out what the problem is. Knowing what the issue is, if you actually do, is much different than possessing the skill and training required to fix the problem, which you don’t.

Trust us, you need professionals to diagnose and resolve any problems that you run into with your heater. You risk personal injury and damage to your heater if you try to do it on your own. Leave the heating repairs to the pros on our team.

Schedule your heating services with Mack Morris Heating & Air Conditioning. We can’t control the weather outside of your home, but we can control the weather inside your home.
