Cheaper Is Rarely Better

Monday, April 1st, 2019

Would you hire the cheapest heart surgeon? It doesn’t matter if he was last in his class & doesn’t have up to-date training! It’s just your heart, right? How about the cheapest mechanic to work on your car that carries your children to and from school? Guaranteed peace-of-mind & excellent workmanship isn’t cheap. So, if the cheapest option isn’t the best option how do you choose? We recommend a combination of thorough research & trusting your gut. If that’s still not enough, here are 4 reasons why cheaper is not always better when it comes to choosing your HVAC company:

1. Cheap work now leads to expensive fixes later.

Your cooling & heating system is the most expensive, mechanical investment you will make in your home. Too often we visit client’s homes who picked the cheapest company to install or service their equipment. They are now left with poor workmanship leaving them uncomfortable & out of money. Cutting corners & performing the bare minimum are often what allows companies to charge so little now but, unfortunately, you’ll pay for it later.

2. Technicians with licensing & training aren’t cheap.

Hiring, retaining & training the best team members is expensive! The alternative? A cheaper, less skilled team member who lacks training servicing your home.

HVAC technicians are required to be licensed. Your cooling & heating system work closely with your gas, electrical lines & refrigerant. It is no easy task & you do not want an unlicensed technician messing with those dangerous elements of your home. A license guarantees you are in safe hands that know what they’re doing.

It’s important to hire a cooling & heating company who is up-to-date on all state-of-the-art technology & methods of servicing & installing your equipment. Receiving certifications & attending training sessions is not cheap but will help the technician be more knowledgeable about ways to save you money, make your home more comfortable & able to fix what is broken when the time comes.

3. Excellent service isn’t cheap.

It’s easy to call the “chuck in a truck” who is cheap & can get the job done. However, many times when you call he doesn’t answer, gives you a six-hour window when he may arrive at your home. His truck & uniform are dirty & unkempt. Even worse, you call him with an emergency & he can’t get to you for days. Companies with excellent service have a team well equipped to answer every phone call, give you specific appointment times, arrive at your home in a clean truck & uniform whenever you need them. Overhead grows as a company grows but so does the level of service provided & that is worth every penny!

4. Trust & integrity are priceless.

Lastly, trust your gut. You can sense when someone is not being truthful but wouldn’t it be nice if you didn’t have to worry about any of that? Having a technician working in your home who you can trust to not only be honest with you but also work hard with integrity to ensure you & your home are safe is a priceless feeling. We do not want you to have to handle any more headaches than you must.
