Or at least so I thought.
I suppose there are many of us who reach for the cellphone first when there is a problem or something needs to be fixed around the house. I get it. Every one of us are all undoubtedly busy as well as have lots of things I like to do. Throw in work as well as kids as well as we’re lucky to get a minute to catch our collective breaths. I still attempt to bring what little handy person skills to the things I can actually work on. My dad raised myself and others to at least explore a needed repair before calling for someone else to come repair it. This has been excellent advice as well as words to live by. Until they weren’t. I l gained a undoubtedly difficult lessen that some things should be left strictly to the professionals. Our heat pump was struggling not too undoubtedly long ago. The weather wasn’t all that tepid but the HVAC component just couldn’t keep up. It just ran as well as ran. I noted there was not a whole lot of cool air coming from the vents. Looking on the internet, I came to the conclusion that this was a result of a lack of refrigerant. Easy repair right? How difficult could it be. All I had to do was order a recharge kit as well as watch a dang video as well as I was fantastic to go. Or at least so I thought. Well, I attempted to recharge the refrigerant just care about I saw in the video. However, I overfilled it as well as cracked an crucial section in the condenser unit. Not only am I now going to pay for a repair call but the repair will be pricey. I will leave all the HVAC stuff to the pros in the future.
