If you aren’t sure if your heating system or your AC has become obsolete…

you can judge by the number of breakdowns that it experiences every year. Age isn’t the only reason that your system could be malfunctioning often. If there are other reasons that the system is malfunctioning, you should have it checked by a competent HVAC contractor.

In order to understand heating and air conditioner units, it takes years of experience and expertise. These are things that the typical homeowner doesn’t have. It would take a professional to look at the system, find the problem, and then recommend the most effective way to make the repairs. If your HVAC contractor suggests that you replace your system but you aren’t sure that this is the best decision, you should seek a second opinion from a reputable HVAC company who only employs NATE-certified technicians.

Why Should I Seek A Second Option?

To Confirm The Diagnosis

image of 2nd opinion AC replacement in allentown PAIf you were suffering from a painful toothache, you would go see your dentist. Your dentist could either prescribe pain medication, perform a root canal, or they could extract the tooth. If the dentist suggests that the tooth is extracted but you don’t want to lose your tooth, you would likely go see another dentist for a second option. The same is true with an HVAC contractor. If the contractor is recommending that you replace your AC unit or your heating system but you have only had them for a few years, you should seek a second opinion.

The technician who offers the second opinion could find that the issue could be something simple, like a faulty thermostat or a blocked vent. Having the issue repaired would cost much less than replacing the entire system.

To Get The Best Service Possible

If you are having a problem with your HVAC system, you should contact an HVAC tech to troubleshoot the problem. If the A/C tech is overly eager to get you to replace your current unit, you should be wary. Since most techs are hoping to make as much money possible, some will push for a replacement even if it isn’t necessary. If this happens, you should tell the tech that you will think about it and get a second opinion.

It is important that you don’t commit yourself to anything:

The original company that you called might not be the best person for the job. When you call for a second opinion, you should make sure that you are contacting a trusted and a reliable company. When you make the call, explain your situation. There are many companies who will give a second opinion for free and you won’t need to commit to anything first. If it turns out that you do need to replace your system, make sure that you hire a trusted and reliable company.

To Get The Best Price

There are several factors that go into the cost of replacing your HVAC system. One of the main factors is the company that you decide to hire. Once the tech looks at your system and they recommend AC replacement, they will give you a quote. If the cost seems high, you should get a second opinion. If you get a second opinion and the second contractor also gives you that same price, don’t stop there. You can get prices from all of the best HVAC contractors in your area.
