For some homeowners, there is nothing more satisfying than performing DIY jobs around the house. If you’re a DIY enthusiast, the temptation to handle the AC repairs or maintenance on your Pittsboro, NC, system may be more than you can resist. Here’s why you should avoid DIY AC maintenance or repair and trust those tasks to the pros.
There’s nothing more important than your safety and the safety of your household. Ultimately, performing any type of AC repair or maintenance without the level of training that our service technicians have is simply unsafe. Your cooling system relies on an ample supply of electricity to function. Trying to work on the system yourself can result in serious injury or worse.
Your AC system comes with an efficiency rating based on the assumption that all the parts are operating as designed. In order to keep all those parts working at their best, it’s important to entrust the system to the trained hand of a professional service tech. If you work on one part of the system, there is a good chance that you will damage another component, resulting in a less efficient system and higher utility bills.
Your AC system comes with a manufacturer’s warranty. There are conditions that you must meet to keep that warranty valid. Typically, one of those conditions is that only a professionally licensed technician may perform repairs and maintenance. Trying to take on the job yourself can result in a voided warranty, meaning more expensive repairs in the future.
Some DIY enthusiasts try to do these jobs themselves in order to save money. However, the risk isn’t worth the potential reward. Instead of taking on DIY AC repairs or maintenance, call on our professionally licensed service techs at A&E Heating and Air Conditioning to safely perform all your AC repairs, maintenance and installations.
