Why You Shouldn’t Make AC Repair A DIY Project

Have you been feeling frustrated with the performance of your HVAC system lately? Are you tempted to tinker with it yourself and seek out the issue?

Here at Southern Air Heating, Cooling and Plumbing, we understand the importance of having a fully functioning AC unit as spring shifts to summer. However, taking on a DIY AC project can be stressful and time-consuming. Our team of HVAC experts are always prepared to assist you with tune-ups, repairs or replacements. Don’t hesitate to reach out to us if you have questions about your indoor air quality or other heating and plumbing concerns.

Read on for more info on the challenges of DIY AC repairs and the benefits of our professional services.

Air Conditioner Repairs Are Dangerous

Attempting HVAC maintenance and repairs yourself can be a dangerous venture if done without the proper tools and certifications. DIY AC repairs often allow allergens and pollutants to damage your indoor air quality through inexperience with appropriate procedures.

Whether the issue you’re facing is wiring-related or connected to a leak, HVAC problems can threaten the health and safety of you and your family. Tinkering with electrical circuits can result in electrocution and lead to serious side effects — or even death. Tampering with refrigerant leaks or other chemical issues can poison your air and put you and your loved ones at risk of lung problems.

What Is Included In AC Services?

Wondering what all is included in a standard HVAC service appointment?

Though DIY repairs may seem more convenient, professional tune-ups are usually more reliable and can prevent the need for more repairs in the future. AC maintenance completed by experts won’t threaten your health and safety. However, DIY projects run the risk of damaging the structural integrity of your home and the well-being of you and your family. Professionals also have more knowledge when it comes to the correct placement of components and optimizing your device’s performance.

When it comes to AC maintenance, you can expect your technician to check the following:

  • All blower parts and pieces
  • Air filters
  • Wear and tear of components
  • Dirt and dust levels inside your appliance
  • Thermostat calibration for accuracy
  • Airflow throughout your system
  • Drip pan
  • Air handler
  • Safety and reset controls
  • Condenser
  • Furnace functions
  • Evaporator coils
  • Refrigerant pressure levels
  • Electrical wiring and connections
  • Condensate drain lines
  • Indoor air quality

Inspections may cover a broader or smaller array of issues depending on the AC company. At Southern Air, you can rest assured that our expert HVAC technicians will provide you with reliable repair recommendations and ways to enhance your unit’s performance.

Why Are Professional AC Repairs Beneficial?

Interested in learning more about the perks of a professional HVAC appointment? Some of the most noticeable benefits include the following:

  • Increasing the energy efficiency of your unit
  • Lowering monthly utility bills
  • Prolonging the lifespan of your appliance
  • Reducing the number of breakdowns and resets needed
  • Addressing repairs or other issues before they become detrimental
  • Less risk through inaccurate DIY troubleshooting
  • Better warranty coverage
  • Fewer safety hazards
  • Less stressful and time-consuming

Scheduling HVAC repairs can feel like a hassle. Yet when you hire an AC expert, the risk of endangering you and your family’s safety and health is significantly reduced.
