With a little research, many homeowners can tackle repairs and maintenance jobs around the home. However, there are certain tasks that are best left to professionals. Some websites claim furnace repair is a do it yourself job, but we want to remind homeowners that trying to fix your own heating system could be dangerous and cause extensive damage.
MYTH: You’ll Save Money with DIY Furnace Repair
FALSE! Furnaces are complex machines and it takes specialized tools to repair or replace broken components. Professional heating specialists have the equipment required for heating repairs and access to the replacement parts needed. Also, DIY furnace repair could cause more damage, requiring even more (and expensive) heating repairs.
MYTH: Fixing Your Own Furnace is Safe
FALSE! Heating repair requires a broad skill set including electrical knowledge, ventilation and possible safety hazards. Working on HVAC equipment without the proper knowledge could lead to injuries or even putting your family in danger.
MYTH: It’s Faster to Fix it Yourself
FALSE! Professional heating technicians have the past experience to efficiently diagnose and fix furnaces. A homeowner with no HVAC training will likely struggle to identify the problem and solution—dragging out the repair time.
Instead of performing furnace repair yourself, invest in a heating service plan. With Delta Air System’s Assure plan, you’ll receive an annual certified heating inspection, labour coverage, priority service and no diagnostic charges.
