“Is it important to use professionals such as Art Plumbing, Air Conditioning & Electric when managing the climate of our interior environments or can I do it myself?” is a question that we often hear posed by many people. Household, working, car, and all other general spaces that we occupy experience seasonal changes and varying conditions throughout the year which need to be managed. Heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning (HVAC) are various ways in which we manage these ever-changing conditions.

So, what is HVAC? It is the technology that regulates your indoor environmental comfort. HVAC is achieved in many different ways such as heaters for heating (for example warm air systems moving heated air through ducts), air handlers for ventilation and air conditioners for cooling and humidity control.

You may think that interior environmental control is easy and because of this, and the vast amount of DIY videos available online, many people make the mistake of thinking they can install and wire their own HVAC systems. Attempting your own installation is very dangerous – your HVAC system is an extremely complex system which should only be installed by an experienced and licensed professional. Incorrect HVAC wiring and installation can have dangerous, catastrophic, and even fatal consequences.

Examples of why you should not attempt a DIY HVAC installation is the possibility of the following outcomes:

  • Inadequate indoor environmental regulation and high monthly energy bills due to the system being installed incorrectly and therefore not functioning at its maximum output.
  • Electrocution due to incorrect HVAC wiring which can lead to bodily damage, burns and even death
  • Electrical fires resulting from faulty HVAC wiring are another major danger posed to DIY electricians

If it is not yet clear that using trusted, professional and licensed electricians such as Art Plumbing, Air Conditioning & Electric for your HVAC needs is necessary then perhaps the prospect of a fire caused by amateur wiring will convince you. And while it is common knowledge that fires can cause excessive damage to households, businesses and lives, did you know that insurance companies will often refuse to compensate for fire damage as a result of electrical fires caused from wiring installed by unlicensed electricians?

Hiring a professional who specializes in HVAC installations is not only recommended but essential. It ensures you are protected from the risks of DIY HVAC wiring such as electrical fires to your property. Indoor environmental control is the same with everything in life – it’s better to pay for quality and peace of mind. Avoid a disaster and contact the professionals at Art Plumbing, Air Conditioning & Electric today for help with your HVAC wiring.
