Is it safe to have a repair person in my home?

By National Refrigeration April 19, 2020

You know the importance of having regular maintenance performed on your heating and cooling system, but is it safe to have your HVAC system serviced during COVID?

This is a question many homeowners are asking. According to the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE), it is okay to fix or replace your HVAC system in order to maintain “normal thermal comfort conditions.” They lay out precautions you can ask of the contractor such as: wear facemasks, enter as few rooms as possible and clean up after work is done. These are all precautions we take, as well as wearing gloves when possible and using hand sanitizer. We cover all footwear with disposable booties and have instructed our staff to remain at home if they exhibit any flu or cold-like symptoms.

The health and safety of our customers and staff remains our top priority. Our COVID-19 protocols are put in place to for these exact purposes.

HVAC systems are designed to provide you with comfortable, clean air. Properly functioning HVAC systems reduce the transmission of viruses through the filtration process. This is something we, as HVAC professionals, are able to assess when we check your heating and cooling systems.

Getting regular maintenance checks is beneficial for extending the life of your heating and cooling system but it is also found to reduce the spread of viruses. The ASHRAE adds, these HVAC systems may also improve resistance to infection.

Since 1969, our customers have come first. This remains our priority!
