When looking for someone to fix your heat pump or air conditioner, you can choose to hire a big-name franchise or someone local. In today’s post, McLay Services, Inc. takes a look at the benefits of working with a local HVAC technician.
Let’s start with the process of getting in touch with a technician. With a big national company, this involves dialing a toll-free number and wading through a maze of options before finally getting someone on the line — someone you’ll probably never speak with again. They’ll assign a technician that may or may not be the best one for the job. Take a local HVAC company, in comparison: they are smaller and you get more personalized service. The same technician may service your HVAC system over its service life, which means you won’t have to repeat the cycle of calling and explaining your situation every time you call.
In situations where you need an immediate response, local HVAC companies win, hands down. Imagine having an HVAC emergency, such as your air conditioner breaking down in the middle of the summer, and trying to schedule an appointment with a national franchise. You’ll likely need to wait for days before you can get your AC up and running again. Locals, on the other hand, can respond to HVAC emergencies faster. If it’s the same contractor that installed your air conditioner, they’re more likely to carry replacement parts, which can shorten the resolution time even more.
