Why You Should Call An Air Conditioning Company For AC Problems

ac maintenance

Reading Time: 2 minutes

It’s never a good idea to try and fix your own air conditioner – even if your Uncle Robert says he fixed his own AC so you could do yours.  Air conditioners are just like any other complicated electrical appliance – they require a certified and licensed technician to maintain, diagnose, and repair.

Here are a few reasons why you should call an air conditioning company rather than fix your AC yourself.

Safety Issues

Maybe the most important reason you shouldn’t fix your air conditioner yourself is that it can be a hazard to your safety. If you’re not sure what you’re doing then you may touch something that has an electric current going through it and get a fatal shock. Also, if you fiddle with something you shouldn’t, it may affect the way your AC system operates and you will probably make the problem worse. Rather call a qualified AC company to get the job done right.

Warranty Concerns

Another reason you shouldn’t try to fix your air conditioner yourself is that the majority of AC warranties state that only licensed technicians should service or repair the units. If you attempt to fix the issues yourself, the warranty may become void.

Licensed Technician

Do you suspect the refrigerant in your AC is low and think you can simply go buy some and put it into your AC unit? The problem with this is there are very specific requirements that need to be followed when handling a refrigerant. Also, the low refrigerant could be due to a leak and instead of adding refrigerant you should have the leak repaired – only an AC technician would be able to diagnose this and have access to the correct parts to fix the problem.  Rather leave it to them to correctly order and install any AC parts that may be needed to repair the unit.

Troubleshooting

Your AC unit may have more problems than you expected. If it is acting up, you may think it is an easy fix like flushing the lines, or changing the filter, but sometimes there is a more serious problem.  For example, you may think a low refrigerant is to blame for your unit not working effectively, but it could also be due to faulty wiring, or the outside fan not working – and in some cases it may be a combination of all 3!  Only a trained AC technician has the knowledge to be able to diagnose the whole problem. An AC technician has all the necessary tools required to fix and maintain any AC system and is also able to advise you when it is time to replace the unit.
