It’s better to leave some things in life to the professionals at Art Plumbing, Air Conditioning & Electric, including your HVAC wiring.

With high temperatures averaging at 90+ degrees – especially between the warmer months of May to August – HVAC units, or heating, ventilation, and air conditioning units, have basically become an essential part of every household in South Florida. It is an important tool for regulating your indoor environment’s comfort level, from cooling to humidity control and providing ventilation to your space.

Because your HVAC system is extremely complex technology, you should not attempt to install and wire your own unit. It can be dangerous for you and your family.

So why take the risk when you can simply call an experienced and licensed professional at Art Plumbing, Air Conditioning & Electric? Here is a list of reasons why you should always look to the technicians for your HVAC wiring.

Safety Hazards

There’s more to wiring your HVAC unit than simply watching online DIY videos. It requires a licensed electrician with years of experience and training.

When done incorrectly, you can end up with inadequate indoor air regulation, which leads to higher monthly energy bills. In the end, you will end up paying more for a unit that is not functioning at its best.

When you see exposed wires on your HVAC unit, it is a good indication that your unit is installed incorrectly. Not only is it a fire hazard, but it also exposes your equipment to moisture. You run the risk of getting electrocuted, resulting in trips to the emergency room due to injuries like burns and even death.

Plus, any damages inflicted on your unit when you attempt to wire it on your own may not be covered by your warranty and insurance.

Results Of Bad HVAC Wiring

Aside from exposed wires, there are many other indications of bad wiring.

It can damage your thermostat and circuit breaker. The thermostat automatically regulates the temperature in your home, while the circuit breaker is a safety tool that stops the flow of current in an electric circuit. Both these devices are imperative to keeping your home comfortable and safe. Most minor thermostat problems are a good indicator that you have issues with your HVAC wiring.

Bad electrical wiring can affect the amount of current your unit receives. When it takes in more than it can handle, it can lead to power outages in your home and trip your circuit breaker. Do not try to turn on your HVAC system when this happens. Instead, call one of our technicians to check on it.

When To Call An HVAC Technician

You should call a technician if your HVAC unit stops functioning, your circuit breaker keeps tripping, you hear strange noises, or you see any water leaks. It is always best to make that call as soon as you notice any of these signs before the issue gets worse.

To properly maintain your HVAC unit and ensure it continues to work for years, you should have a technician evaluate your system’s performance at least once a year. This can help prevent any future power outages and costly repairs.

When you plan to buy a new home or expand, a trained technician will be able to recommend units best suited for your home. Without consultation, you might end up with systems that don’t fit your home that will ultimately cause extra wear and tear, limiting its lifespan.

Making That Call

Leaving your HVAC wiring to the licensed technicians can help you avoid any unnecessary damages. It saves you time, money and possibly lives.
