So many people are trying to do their own HVAC repairs right now.
They don’t want to come in contact with anyone who may be exposed to the coronavirus.
In theory, this is a great idea. There are times when we need to allow a professional to do our work. To find out if you need to have professional work on your furnace or air conditioning unit, there are sites where you can diagnose your problem. Many HVAC companies have pages on their website that helps you to diagnose the furnace or air conditioner. There are also DIY pages available where you can not just diagnose your HVAC symptoms, but you can also find out how to repair the problem yourself. This does not mean that you should repair every problem with the furnace or air conditioning. You should only repair those things that you feel comfortable doing and that are not recommended being done by a professional HVAC technician. Doing your own HVAC repairs can save you money. If you aren’t sure what is wrong, it could cost you a lot of added expense you wouldn’t have if you had called the professional. Be aware of what you are doing and follow the directions completely. The professional HVAC technician doesn’t want to do added work that isn’t necessary. He also doesn’t want to try to figure out what you did and how to repair your repairs. Although people need to be aware of the need for social distancing, you still need to use common sense. No one wants to be left without heating or air conditioning when they have been quarantined to their home.
