We know there are a lot of DIY enthusiasts out there. With the advent of YouTube instructional videos, many people love tinkering with things in their home and solving home repair problems themselves, rather than calling in a professional. They feel like it saves them money and they get a kick out of feeling like they can fix everything.
While we don’t want to get in the way of anyone’s fun, we caution people against working on their HVAC systems themselves. Over the years, we have seen these kinds of repairs cause more harm than good and we would hate to see that happen to you. Here are just a few of the things that can go wrong!
Safety is a huge part of the training that every HVAC technician receives. It’s easier than you might think to get injured while working on these systems.
If you’ve ever worked with metal or had a factory job, you know how sharp those pieces can be. They are deceptive sometimes, too. Something may look benign but, the minute you touch it, you have an injury worthy of a hospital visit. Don’t let that happen to you!
When you work on an HVAC system, you also run a significant risk of getting shocked. There are a lot of electrical components and, unless you know how to work with them, you can give yourself quite a jolt!
While some HVAC repairs are easy – or look easy on YouTube! – most of them are actually fairly complex and involve quite a few steps. Mess just one of these up just a little bit, and you have a major problem or something that will become a major problem fast! Fixing these DIY goofs often costs more than just calling us in the first place, and you may end up without heating or cooling until we can fix it, too!
If you have an HVAC system that is under warranty, unlicensed repairs may void that. You’ll need to read your warranty carefully to make sure, but most require professional servicing and repairs. Since you probably wouldn’t throw your warranty into the fire, don’t void it like this, either.

Friendly and courteous, went beyond the initial problem to check all factors that may have contributed to my heating issue. Joe took several extra steps to isolate the issue and spent the necessary time to check all factors, from thermostat to element.
We woke up on this cold morning with a broken furnace. Called Turners and they were out within a couple hours, found the issue, and repaired immediately. So pleased we won’t have to suffer the cold with no heat! Tim was awesome, super friendly, and would welcome his work anytime!
DJ was super helpful and courteous. He arrived at my condo on time and walked me through his evaluation of the issue. He provided me with all of my options and allowed me to decide how to proceed. Would definitely recommend Turner’s Service!
I am very pleased with their customer service and technical proficiency. These technicians are honest and explain things well. I plan to continue to use Turner’s for HVAC servicing and would give them a strong recommendation.
Very thorough, very friendly, was detailed about the use and operating instructions. Turner’s is a company that you can trust. They are not trying to up-sell you, but keep you as a loyal customer. I have used them for years for my HVAC maintenance and repair needs.
The Turner’s technician arrived on time and listened to our issues with the AC unit. He thoroughly checked it out, explained everything and was able to find the issue. Joe was great. I would highly recommend Turner’s Service Co. to anyone looking for a HVAC company.
