Can I service my own heating and cooling systems?

Can you service your own heating and cooling systems? Possibly, with the right tools and skills to do the necessary maintenance or repairs. But should you? Probably not. Unless you are a trained, licensed HVAC service technician, it’s generally not a good idea to attempt complex heating and cooling repairs, installations or replacements yourself. An HVAC service technician from Rick’s Heating & Cooling is always fully certified, experienced and knowledgeable. They are all highly trained so they can get the job done quickly and correctly.

When it comes to replacing or installing your HVAC equipment, an HVAC service technician will be able to properly size and install your system—this is incredibly important because poorly sized heating and cooling equipment is subject to reduced energy efficiency, more frequent breakdowns and a shorter lifespan. Remember, the way your equipment is installed will majorly impact how it runs for the rest of its life!

Although most repairs, installations and replacements should be done by an HVAC service technician, there are a number of do-it-yourself HVAC maintenance tasks that can be safely performed at, including:

  • Changing the air filters
  • Cleaning the condenser
  • Cleaning the evaporator
