WE ARE NOT PLUMBERS
We Are AC Specialists
Calling Us Gets You a Air Conditioning Expert & Heating Expert – Not a Plumber in Disguise
This is NOT to try and say that one is better than the other, no, they both offer great importance in the service repair industry but each has their own – different – purpose and skill-set to offer the customer. Air Conditioning Companies who pass Plumbers off as HVAC technicians are nothing more than Charlestons & there should be a law against it!
To top it off, if you look closely you will notice that one of these larger companies actually use derogatory statements in their advertising against real person’s names, for instance there is a company and most have heard their advertisements who castigate the name ‘Melvin’ as some poor idiot, the thing is this very same company have AC vehicles with “WE DO PLUMBING” plastered all over them! A wise man once said, “when you point your finger at another person in condemnation – there are three fingers and a thumb pointing straight back at the real problem”. They come to your home and act like they’re going to repair your AC but end up doing a full court sales press – not to repair your AC system – but to sell you a new AC unit… Why?.. because their PLUMBERS can’t fix anything as technical as your HVAC Air Conditioning Unit!
A highly qualified AC Technician will NOT perform plumbing tasks e.g. snaking and cleaning drains, grease traps, sewer lines and the like. This is not because he or she can’t or doesn’t understand how to but because this is not the reason thousands of dollars and hundreds of hours were spent in schools and money including on the job training internship it takes to successfully learn the Air Conditioning and Heating trade. Honestly, I don’t believe a medical doctor spends any more time and effort than a well seasoned HVAC specialists does. That said, an Air Conditioning Specialist can and will of course build the best condensate drain possible for your air conditioner, complete with the proper venting, traps, slope and even heat-tape if necessary, but snake your toilet he will not do.
A qualified Plumber is not specifically trained to perform technical AC Technician tasks like diagnostically reading Freon pressure gauges determining whether the relationship between the high and low sides of a system are within range or not according enthalpy which must take into consideration several different physical and atmospheric measurements and comparing that relationship to outdoor and indoor ambient, coupled with sub-cooling, super-heat, relative humidity, static pressures how’s, where’s, when’s, why’s and on and on. It’s just not what the training of a plumber does. There is actually a company that derogatorily names poor quality AC Tech’s “Melvin” and are then dumb enough to paste “we do plumbing” all over their Air Conditioning service trucks!
My friends, comparing AC tech’s and Plumbers is similar to comparing a general physician to an emergency room surgeon. They both have vitally important jobs and each is smart and qualified in their own chosen fields but not in the others. If you need a plumber then call a plumber but if you need professional tech from one of the AC companies near you, to figure out what is wrong with your heating and air system and how to make blow freezing cold again, then do not call a company that sends a plumber disguised as an AC technician and stay far, far away from HVAC companies that plaster “WE DO PLUMBING” all over their trucks unless you like hearing the big sales pitch on how you need a new unit because your old one is unfixable not mentioning it’s because that plumber lacks the real world heating and air experience and qualifications to repair it!
Yes friends, plumbers and ac techs are different types of repair people cut from different cloths, each important in their own given field but finding just one that highly qualified in both fields and also willing to work in each at the same time would be nearly flatly impossible. So the next time you think to yourself, you need to call an AC tech out to check your heating, maintain, repair or replace your HVAC system or if you own a restaurant with refrigeration maintenance and repair needs, be sure to choose a company like SunStateHVAC.com who has NO PLUMBING ADVERTISING on their truck and you will be miles ahead of your neighbors!
