However, hiring an unlicensed and uninsured individual or company can be catastrophic. In many instances, the unlicensed contractor will lack the proper knowledge to perform the job or will use deficient products and parts to save money all while charging their clients an "excellent" price. What homeowners fail to realize is that in the end this will often cost them twice: once to the unlicensed company and then again to a professional HVAC service to correct to the problem.
