Safety Precautions When Fixing Your AC

With DIY videos, blogs, TV shows and podcasts, it’s easier than ever for us to find out solutions to every problem. With the DIY world ever increasing, it’s necessary to discuss safety precautions when taking the time to fix a problem yourself.

Furnace Safety

One of the biggest dangers of maintaining or repairing your HVAC system is being aware of carbon monoxide poisoning. When HVAC systems aren’t properly maintained they can start to leak carbon monoxide. There are a few reasons this could happen: either the HVAC system was improperly maintained, a diagnostic problem could be occurring, or the HVAC system as a whole is damaged. To be safe, make sure to have a carbon monoxide detector with new batteries next to your furnace. Also, if you have to repair your furnace, make sure to turn off the system and follow the manufacturer’s guidelines for maintenance instructions.

AC Safety

When it comes to being safe with basic AC maintenance, make sure to shut off the AC system before you do anything. Even if you are clearing debris from the outside or brushing off your AC. If you have an electrical problem then you should call a licensed professional. ACs are complex machines that a professional technician has a vast array of knowledge about. You should have your air conditioning unit regularly maintained to ensure it runs properly and efficiently. Regular maintenance may seem costly, but in the long run it will always save you money.
