Avoiding Do-It-Yourself Commercial HVAC Disaster

DIY Disaster

If you run a company, you have a good reason to believe that you could handle just about any type of problem that could crop up in your facility. However, if you ever have an issue with your commercial HVAC equipment, you need to make sure you or your employees have the knowledge and the tools necessary to fix your system. The Longwood professionals with Service One AC want to share some things you need to think about before diving into any heating or cooling equipment repair.

Know Your Limitations

Did you ever see any of Clint Eastwood’s “Dirty Harry” movies from back in the 1970s? In Magnum Force, he said, “A man’s got to know his limitations.” What does that have to do with commercial HVAC work? Well, you need to be honest with yourself before taking on any sort of do-it-yourself project. Even if you or one of your workers are pretty good at tinkering around with machinery, that doesn’t mean you can automatically dive into working on a compressor. Heating and cooling equipment is complex. Even a small mistake could result in thousands of dollars in damage.

Weighing Cost Versus Time

One of the main driving forces behind choosing to embark on a do-it-yourself project is, of course, money. However, you also have to factor in the amount of time it will take for you to fix your commercial HVAC issue. Unless you have a great deal of experience in this type of work, you’ll probably find that it will take a great deal longer for you to fix the problem than it would take an experienced technician. That translates to lost productivity.

Take the hassle and potential expense out of the equation. Contact us at Service One AC and we’ll have your problem fixed as quickly and efficiently as possible.
