Why You Should Never Attempt to Fix Your Own AC Unit

Posted on: March 22, 2018

We know a DIY fix might seem like the best option for most household appliances and systems, but when it comes to your AC, we can assure you it’s not. You may have seen a few steps-by-step and how-to videos, but those videos won’t be able to help you if an unexpected problem occurs. By trusting your AC in the hands of one our trusted professionals, you’ll be making the most affordable and educated choice. So here are just a few reasons why you should never attempt to fix your AC:

It’s a Safety Issue

Your AC is a complicated system, and by trying to fix it without proper knowledge can be a significant safety risk. Electrical repairs are not something to take lightly, and if done wrong could lead to shock.

It Could Void Your Warranty

Whether you realize it or not, your AC might be under warranty. Before you begin making any repairs yourself, you’ll want to give it a quick read over. Many warranties require your system only to be repaired by certified technicians. Voiding the warranty that you invested in can cost you more money in the long run.

Your Lack of Knowledge

Sometimes a problem can be more complicated than you expected. To make the best assessment of what the problem is and how to fix it, you’ll have to know the full workings of your system. A how-to video cannot help you with that, and if you hit another issue along the way, you could wind up doing more harm than good.

It Could Be More Complicated

We get to understand that you may be handy or have basic knowledge of how your system works, but things in this industry change all the time. Our technicians know the latest recalls, parts and are fully trained to handle any problem that occurs in your system. By trusting a trained professional, you are saving money and time in the long run.
