3 Reasons You Can’t Repair Your AC Yourself

AC-technicianNeed air conditioning repair in St. Charles, MO? Then you need to call in trained professionals. Our technicians are some of the best in the industry. When you hire us to repair your air conditioning system, count on the job being done right.

The first bit of information that we want to share is this: AC repair is not a DIY job! We know that there are a lot of DIY enthusiasts out there. We know that there are a lot of online tutorials that you can watch. We also know that DIY repair attempts just don’t end well. Here are the top 3 reasons you need a pro for the job!

1. Proper Diagnoses, Proper Resolutions

We will get this one out of the way, right away. If you are not a trained air conditioning technician, you have no business servicing a malfunctioning air conditioner. There are so many different problems that may emerge with your system. The idea of a non-professional accurately diagnosing an AC issue of any complexity is very unlikely. And if you don’t actually know what problem it is that you’re trying to solve, you’re setting yourself up for failure.

Now, let’s assume that you do diagnose the problem accurately. What now? Without the training, tools, and experience that professionals have access to, you’re probably not going to be able to do much about the problem. You’re also not going to be certified to do anything with refrigerant—including getting more of it to recharge a leaking system! Go ahead and change your air filter as needed, but leave the repairs to the pros.

2. Protect Your Safety

Whatever your profession may be, your safety should always come first. And if you break out the toolbox to crack into your air conditioner without proper training, you’re not protecting your safety! We’re not just talking about a few bruised knuckles here. When professionally serviced, ACs don’t pose an inherent threat to the service technician.

When an amateur tries to service any system like an AC,  though, things get dangerous fast. Did you disconnect the electricity entirely? Are you aware of all moving parts and their location? Do you know for sure that you’ve got everything back together and wired up for safe operation when the job’s done? Please—don’t put your safety at risk with DIY repair attempts.

3. Protect Your Warranty!

The only thing worse than needing AC repairs on a hot day is paying out of pocket for those repairs. At least, paying out of pocket when your system should still be under warranty. Something a lot of folks overlook is the fact that warranties can be voided. If you call in for professional air conditioning repairs, that warranty is protected when problems covered by it are discovered. If you’re in there yourself, messing around and potentially causing more problems, you’re out of luck.

Work with us to get the quality repairs you need at the fair price that you deserve. We’ll protect your safety, your warranty—and your comfort!
