With the power of the internet and all the skills we’ve picked up, some homeowners may be trying to make adjustments to their air conditioning units. When it comes to a full AC replacement, you should always call in a team of specialists.
AC installations can be dangerous without the right tools and skills. Technicians at Blanco AC, Electrical & Plumbing want to share some of the dangers that can come up during a DIY HVAC installation.
Risks Against Yourself
Your safety should always be the top priority when it comes to any DIY project. An AC installation is no simple task and should be treated with care. For those without the proper experience, here are some dangers you could find with your DIY installation.
Replacing your cooling system requires training and tools. Your AC unit holds high-voltage electrical circuits that should be handled safely. Without electrical training, you could be putting yourself in danger of electrocution.
There are also liquid and chemical components to watch out for in an air conditioning installation. Specialists will often have protective gear they wear when working with HVAC systems. This protects them from hazardous chemicals as well as sharp points and hot metals.
To safely work with your HVAC system, you will need the experience and tools necessary to keep yourself out of harm’s way. The best way to start your AC installation is by calling your local specialists to take care of the dirty work.
Without the official license, certain parts of your AC unit cannot be worked on legally. Things like refrigerants are hazardous and can only be purchased from HVAC supply companies. Any other means of acquiring these parts could be illegal in some instances. Save yourself the fines and legal consequences by letting your local specialists take care of your installation.
Risks Of DIY AC Installation
Homeowners may think that DIY work means that there’s less hassle and less expense than hiring a professional. For an AC installation, you could find yourself paying more for repairs and maybe even a full replacement sooner than you would like. Here are some installation risks that could happen to your unit.
Costly DIY HVAC Repair
If something were to go wrong with a DIY installation, there’s going to be a cost with it. Repair costs and full replacements aren’t worth the chance of saving a couple of extra dollars. During a DIY AC replacement you could have:
- Leaking refrigerant
- Sensor issues
- Drainage issues
- Tripped circuits
All of these could lead to replacement parts and damage to your home. The best way to save money is to make the safest call. Our technicians will diagnose any problems your system may have, and if a replacement is necessary, we’ll take care of that, too.
Warranties are important when it comes to your home appliances. You want to make sure your home is protected against any unforeseen problems. You can get a warranty on your new AC system, but only if your system is installed by a heating and cooling specialist. Any attempts to install a new system yourself could lead to a voided warranty. Keep your warranty safe, and call in a professional to help.
