4 Reasons to Avoid Buying Your Furnace from a Big Box Retailer
Is it time to buy a new furnace for your Peachtree City, GA, home? Your first thought might be to purchase one from a big box retailer. But, buying a heating system from a large commercial retailer has a few distinct disadvantages.
1. Having to Install a Furnace by Yourself
Most large retailers don’t offer installation services for consumers after they purchase a new furnace. Not only is installing one by yourself difficult, but it’s also potentially dangerous and absolutely inadvisable. Fortunately, a trusted HVAC service provider can safely take care of installing and testing out your new heating system. Again, avoid anything with DIY in it, and when in doubt, call for help!
2. Not Working with Trained Experts
Another advantage of buying a new furnace from an HVAC company rather than a big box retailer is benefiting from the experience of skilled professionals. That’s not to say salespeople don’t have experience. However, most of these workers receive training about selling items, not education about repairing or installing them. Would you rather have an experienced service technician install your furnace or an inexperienced salesperson? The choice seems pretty simple.
3. The Risk of Buying a Low-Quality Furnace
Many big box retailers only worry about making sales. Because of that, they may carry inexpensive and low-quality furnaces. A local HVAC company typically carries high-quality equipment that’s both long-lasting and affordable.
4. No Support Outside of Business Hours
Another disadvantage is receiving zero support should a problem occur after normal business hours. There aren’t furnace repair specialists on-site to make a trip to your home. Many HVAC companies offer 24-hour emergency services, so you’ll get the support you deserve even if a problem arises in the middle of the night.
