Why Free Second Opinions on HVAC Units Are a Must for Homeowners

Your home’s HVAC unit is an investment. Just like a car, it requires regular maintenance and upkeep to ensure it continues to keep you and your family comfortable all year long.

But what happens when something isn’t working? You call a technician to come inspect the problem; after they take a look at it, they tell you significant repairs are needed, or worse – your unit needs to be replaced. Before potentially paying hundreds, or even thousands of dollars, consider the benefits of a free second opinion:

  1. Gain a better understanding of the first estimate – If the original company that inspected your unit did not provide you with a clear explanation of what they found, it can be hard to fully understand your options. Having someone provide a second opinion can help you understand the complexities of the situation and identify other Arlinghaus technician speaks to homeowner about changing HVAC filterssolutions.
  2. Repair vs. replace – Sometimes, Arlinghaus technicians will perform a free second opinion inspection and find that the work quoted in the original estimate will not, in fact, solve the problem long term. Instead, it’s often an expensive, temporary fix that could cost you more money over time, especially if you have an older unit. Many people believe there’s a clear separation between when your unit needs to be repaired or replaced but that’s not always the case. There are other, less obvious reasons, you may consider replacing a unit in lieu of a repair. If your unit is more than 10 years old, it’s very likely that the unit is less efficient than newer models. This can cost you money in other places, like your energy bills.
  3. Customized options – Our team of skilled technicians do more than just inspect your unit. For example, we like to learn more about how much time you spend in the home if any of the residents are infants, elderly or suffer from asthma and allergies, what a typical energy bill looks like for your family, and more. This allows us to provide you with customized options and price points that meet your family’s unique needs and budget.

At the end of the day, our goal is to empower you to make the best choice for your current and future situation. Investing money in a system you’ll need to replace in a year does not yield long-term economic or home comfort benefits. At Arlinghaus, we strive to provide you with the peace of mind you deserve by offering free second opinions, 24-hour emergency repair service, and more to keep your home a “happy house.” Read more about what else makes us stand out from others in our industry and give us a call today to schedule your free second opinion inspection.
