New HVAC equipment is a big investment and it can be tempting to try and buy it on your own vs. through a trusted HVAC company in order to save on the initial cost. However, we can guarantee that the risks outweigh the benefits to doing so. Read on to discover why you should always get your equipment from a licensed HVAC company.
Many HVAC companies will not install equipment purchased elsewhere
Generally, an HVAC company or contractor will refuse to install equipment that wasn’t purchased through them. There’s no way to guarantee their installation work when they don’t know for sure that the equipment came straight from the manufacturer.
Your equipment may get damaged during delivery
Because HVAC equipment is heavy and large, it’s not something that can be transported easily without risk of damaging it. When the equipment is purchased through a licensed HVAC company, they are the ones responsible for transporting it. When you buy equipment elsewhere, especially online, you run the risk of being responsible for any damage the equipment incurs during transport.
You may buy the wrong equipment
A benefit of working with a trusted HVAC company is that they do all of the work for you, including pricing out different equipment options based on your specific heating and cooling needs, the size of your home and your budget. HVAC equipment that’s too big or too small, or simply just not right, can be a serious problem. The wrong equipment can lead to uneven heating and cooling, poor indoor air quality, high energy bills, breakdowns and more. When making such a big decision, it’s best to trust the experts.
You may void the warranty
Many manufacturers have limitations on their warranties, and may not guarantee them if you don’t purchase and have your equipment installed by a licensed distributor, contractor or company.
