If you are anything like me, the idea of doing work on your own is appealing (especially for ac repair). Besides the fact that you can save a ton of money, the sense of accomplishment is awesome as well. Before you roll up your sleeves and attempt to fix your unit on your own, you should read the following tips.
Turn off all electricity before you attempt to remove the panel on your unit. The last thing you want is to risk electrocution when trying to fix your unit. It is also a good idea to have a voltage tester on hand to make sure that the power is truly off before you get started.
Write down the serial number of your unit before shopping for parts. While some units may look the same, they are very different in many ways. It is always a good idea to have the best available parts and you cannot ensure this unless you get those that were made for the unit you have.
While it may seem like there are more tips to learn, there are none more important than these. Keep this advice in mind and you should have a decent experience (but don’t forget you can always get ac service anytime you need one).
