Handyman or Licensed HVAC Contractor?
What’s the difference between a San Diego HVAC Contractor and a Local Handyman?
Not every state requires licensing, certifications, or even formal training for people to perform HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning) services. And many local handymen have a wide variety of skills and background to perform areas in HAVC work. However, there is a big difference between a seasoned professional and a handyman.
Training & Certifications
A licensed and trained San Diego HVAC Contractor will not only have the proper education, but in order to become certified and pass courses, they must be also up to date on all local regulations and laws that ensure safety
A local handyman may have some education or general working knowledge, but without certification, you cannot be certain they understand and adhere to all safety aspects of heating & air
Permits & Inspections
All homeowners and business owners who change out a central furnace, air conditioning, ventilation system (and many other large appliances) must have a permit pulled. When a San Diego HVAC contractor installs your system, they are bound by the California State Licensing Board to pull the appropriate permit and have a final inspection completed
Handyman services can pull permits, and the inspection would be completed by a licensed contractor. You could potentially have to hire a licensed contractor anyway, as any repairs that might come up in inspection would require one before the hob would pass and be signed off by the inspector.
