When to avoid DIY furnace repair

With YouTube and all the other online resources out there, it can be tempting to try DIY for everything. You can even try out furnace repair if you want. But we want to caution you to be careful, particularly in winter. We believe when the stakes are high – like when the temperatures are freezing outside – it’s better to be safe than sorry and call a pro.

DIY Furnace Repair – Avoid it In Utah Winters

Here are a few reasons why we think you should skip DIY furnace repair in winter:

1. If you make a mistake, you could be without a furnace in the winter.

If you scan through our blogs, you will see that there are some basic furnace maintenance tasks that anyone can do. But if you are looking at a furnace that appears to be broken, we encourage you to contact us first. Making a mistake while repairing your furnace can be dangerous and could leave you with a fully broken furnace that you need to replace.

Don’t get us wrong, we will be happy to replace your broken furnace with a new one. But we think you probably want to keep the old one working for as long as possible. To accomplish that goal, you need professional maintenance.

2. We know exactly how to fix the problem – which means your home will be warmer, faster.

Our team has years and years of furnace repair experience. That experience allows us to troubleshoot furnaces quickly and accurately. Chances are, we can identify the problem and fix it before you can figure out what is wrong.

We have done our own DIY repairs in areas we don’t have expertise in. It can be fun. But if a lot is on the line, like keeping our families safe and comfortable, we go to the professionals.

3. It might be faster to call a pro.

While you might stumble upon a solution on your own, you might also spend hours or days trying to solve the problem. Depending on our availability, we could be out there to your home in record time. There is a strong possibility that we could have the problem fixed – and your home warmed up – in the time it takes you to watch a few repair videos.
