Living in Jeffersontown, Kentucky may have inspired you to tackle more DIY projects on your own, but there are some jobs you shouldn’t attempt yourself. When it comes to your HVAC system, make sure you leave these three HVAC repairs to the pros.
This one should go without saying, but you should never attempt electrical repairs yourself (unless, of course, you happen to be an electrician). HVAC units are powerful systems with high voltages and currents, making electrocution and fire very real dangers. If your HVAC system has tripped a breaker, you can try resetting the breaker yourself — but only once. A recurring problem could signal a short or an overload, which should be addressed by a professional.
Perhaps you’re positive that a broken part is causing your HVAC system problems. You look up the part online, and it seems relatively easy to install. Whatever you do, resist the DIY urge that hits you. It’s all too easy to misdiagnose the problem or cause a new one in your attempt at replacing a part yourself. You could end up voiding your warranty or making a simple repair more expensive.
Your home’s ductwork may not seem too complicated, but looks can be deceiving. Cleaning ductwork requires special tools that the average homeowner is unlikely to have, and even if you’re the exception, taking a DIY approach would be risky.
Instead, leave any ductwork cleaning or repairs to professionals. They will be better equipped to find and fix problems, including mold. The same logic applies to sealing leaks in your ducts or cleaning other components of your system.
