Nowadays, it seems like everyone is a DIY-er, attempting to fix everything from clogged plumbing to HVAC problems after watching a few YouTube videos.
What those videos don’t often show is the aftermath of DIY gone wrong, when a simple oversight can lead to disastrous results – especially when you’re dealing with combustion appliances.
Working with today’s high-tech HVAC systems presents unique challenges that only trained professionals are equipped to handle (and that only thanks to continuous training and every day experience). Attempting to fix or modify the delicate inner workings of a modern gas furnace, for example, can “severely damage the inner workings of the appliance or cause…property damage, fire or bodily injury,” according to propane101.com. And that assessment doesn’t even take into account carbon monoxide risks that can come from misguided DIY.
Is saving a couple of bucks in the short term worth all that risk to your home and family?
