I know there are several of us who reach for the phone first when there is a problem or something needs to be fixed around the house.
I get it.
All of us are all actually tied up and have lots of things I enjoy. Throw in labor and teenagers and 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 labor on. My dad raised myself and others to at least explore a needed service before calling for someone else to come repair it. This has been excellent advice and words to live by. Until they weren’t. I l acquired a actually taxing lessen that some things should be left strictly to the professionals. Our heat pump was struggling not too actually long ago. The weather wasn’t all thatboilingbut the HVAC component just couldn’t keep up. It just ran and 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 taxing could it be. All I had to do was order a recharge kit and watch a dang video and I was good 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 and cracked an important part in the condenser unit. Not only am I now going to pay for a repair call however the service will be overpriced. I will leave all the HVAC stuff to the pros in the future.
