Don’t Even Think About Trying a “Do It Yourself” Furnace Repair!

Should You DIY a Furnace Repair?

Living in the DIY generation can have some serious perks. A few YouTube videos and people can learn how to fix leaky faucets, replace air conditioning filters, and even change out thermostats. However, when it comes to some things, DIY is simply not possible or even safe.

Furnace repair is one such item that should never be DIYed for any reason. Trying to fix a furnace on your own will not only cause bigger problems, but it is downright dangerous and can even be deadly. Furnace repair should only be done by professionals with the right knowledge and the right tools for the job.

Contractors Have Insurance – You Don’t

When you have an issue with your furnace, getting to the root and figuring out a solution to fix it takes far more than a YouTube video. It takes years of knowledge, on-the-job training, and mastery.

Should your furnace start leaking or not working properly, only technicians will have the proper licensing and HVAC insurance to diagnose the problem and cover the expense should any damage occur.

All proper HVAC techs are licensed and carry enough insurance that, should a problem occur and your property is damaged, you’ll be given monetary compensation to fix the issue. If, however, you try and fix a problem on your own and you damage your home, you’ll have no recourse to recuperate the monetary loss you’ve suffered.

Pros Help Find Quick Solutions

Any homeowner who has tried to fix something on their own will know, finding the solution to a plumbing or HVAC problem takes a lot of time, research, and tools to properly fix. Unless you have a weekend or two to dedicate to your problem, you’re going to need to call a professional.

Not only will they likely be able to solve your problem in a day, but they’ll arrive at your home with the tools in hand to perform their job. If you try to DIY a project, you’re also going to have to find the necessary replacement parts for your unit.

Once again, a professional can get the replacement parts you need quickly and most have them on their work truck to fix your problem right away. When it comes down to it, hiring a professional is a lot quicker.

Your Whole System Gets Checked

While you as a homeowner might be able to figure out a few problems with your unit, a professional is able to go far beyond determining part of the problem. When a professional HVAC tech comes in to view an issue, they will run a diagnosis on the entire system.

They’ll figure out the root of the issue, determine how to fix it, and look at your whole system to ensure the solution isn’t just a bandaid when you have a much bigger problem. Only a professional has the tools necessary to help you figure out the entire problem and present a solution that addresses root causes.
