Is the heat pump on the fritz in your Las Vegas, NV home? Though it’s tempting to get out the tools and fix it yourself, resist the urge. In this blog, we discuss the importance of hiring a professional for HVAC repairs.
DIY or Amateur Work Voids Your Warranty
The warranty on your heat pump helps you pay for repairs and maintenance work by covering part of the cost for you. Having work done on your heat pump by someone without a license, whether it’s yourself or an unlicensed HVAC worker, voids this warranty.
Your Physical Safety Is At Risk
Repairing a heat pump involves working with high amounts of electricity. Without proper experience and training, you’re at high risk for shocks and electrocution. You may also put others in your home at risk as well, just to save a few bucks.
Special Tools Are Needed
It’s very unlikely you’ll have all the tools and equipment needed to perform a proper repair job. HVAC technicians are professionals who’ve had years to gather their tools. It takes a lot more than a hammer and a screwdriver to fix your heat pump, and a lot more knowledge than what you can find on the internet.
Further Damage Is Possible
When repairing your own heat pump, you run the risk of causing further damage instead of fixing the original problem. Even if you get things running again, there’s no guarantee your heat pump will be performing at anywhere near the efficiency it was. In the end, you might end up shelling out the cash for a repair anyway.
