Air Conditioning systems, like any major appliance, will eventually need to be repaired and undergo maintenance. Due to high usage, air conditioning repairs, in general, are fairly common.
Many people try to complete these repairs themselves. This is where issues arise, which is why we do not recommend attempting your own A/C repairs.
Why You Shouldn’t Perform DIY A/C Installation & Repairs
Without the proper knowledge of A/C Repair, it can be difficult, costly, and potentially dangerous. We have seen the less than ideal results of DIY A/C repairs time again, this is why we have assembled this guide to the top four reasons you should leave A/C repairs and maintenance up to the professionals.
If you opt to repair your own A/C unit, you will be voiding the warranty on the system. This means if you ever have any more serious repairs required in the future, you will not be able to have them performed under warranty and it can lead to unforeseen steep expenses.
Hiring a licensed expert to handle your A/C services will ensure your warranty is upheld, and you can rest easy knowing that your system is protected in the case of unforeseen complications in the future.
Potential Contact With Refrigerants
Refrigerants can be extremely harmful to human beings if they are not handled properly. If you do not have the proper training and knowledge on how to handle these harmful liquids or gas, you risk poisoning. Refrigerants are also highly susceptible to catching fire if not handled properly.
It is always wise to hire a professional who knows how to handle this volatile substance in a safe and efficient manner.
Cost Of Tools and Parts
One of the hidden costs associated with repairing or performing maintenance on your A/C unit yourself is the cost of the required tools, and the replacement parts required. A/C units require specific tools to properly perform any service on these systems. It can be dangerous to try and cut corners by using the wrong tools to save some money. We recommend hiring a professional to handle your A/C service. This will save you a significant amount of money in the long term. Investing in tools isn’t wise since they will only be used occasionally.
Working With High Voltages
It can be dangerous to attempt to repair or maintain your A/C unit without the proper training. Major systems such as A/C’s have high voltages running through them, and if they are not handled properly you risk being electrocuted.
