When I purchased my first house, I didn’t think about home repairs very much. I didn’t know how to change my own tire. Before the end of the first year, I learned to change plumbing fixtures, lay carpet as well as repair a leaky faucet. It was a lot of work but I managed to do it! The internet has thousands of free videos. I found hundreds of DIY videos to teach myself how to do the minor repairs. When I had issues with the a/c unit, the videos I found recommended a few easy tips. I cleaned the debris from our outdoor compressor before I made sure the evaporator drain was clear. None of that was the repair solution I needed for my a/c unit. My mom and dad told me to call a professional HVAC serviceman. The a/c repair company wanted 89.00 just to come to look at the HVAC system. That’s a large amount of money to spend for an evaluation yet I was left with no other choice. I called the a/c repair company and set an early appointment. The next afternoon, they came out to look at my system. I was surprised to see the HVAC technician start with the same steps I did. The a/c repair worker said that I needed to replace the kick switch. I didn’t have any clue what that was however it was on the outdoor HVAC component. It took an hour to complete the a/c repair but however it worked. When the HVAC serviceman left, the a/c was actually working again. I wouldn’t have been able to fix the issue so I’m happy that I finally made the call.
