Why Doing Do-It-Yourself AC Repair is a BAD Idea to Even Consider


AC Units Feature Highly Technical Electrical Control Panels & Cooling Components

New AC systems, like new cars, come with a factory warranty. If an AC unit is worked on by heating and cooling plumber that is not a factory authorized repair company, it will most likely negate the product’s warranty. If a homeowner or business owner works on an AC unit under warranty it will also wipe out the warranty. Adding insult to injury that is even worse is if the repair would have been covered by a service warranty purchased when the unit was bought initially and ends up not being covered because an unauthorized cooling technician worked on it.

The system must be repaired with the factory parts and fluids specified by the manufacturer. If a system’s refrigerant is supplied with the wrong kind it may cause a catastrophic fire or explosion, which would no doubt be a disaster.
