Learn To Repair Your Own Air Conditioner And Be A Hero!

Feb 3, 2008
Do it yourself air conditioning repair; why would anyone want to do that? Many people think to their selfs "don't you need to be certified to do that?" It turns out that the answer to that question is no, not when you are working on your own air conditioning system. Although hiring a certified repair technician is convenient, there are benefits to repairing your air conditioning system yourself.

Cost: With out exception, cost this the greatest advantage of DIY air conditioning. Hiring a certified technician is expensive. This is because professionals general charge based on time and materials. And because the parts get to you via a middle man the price of the materials is significantly marked up so they can make a profit. The cost of their time is also high because of two main reasons. First, the parent company needs a cut of the technicians time. Second, the technician needs to recover the cost of that expensive certification. This all adds up to a high repair for you.

You are not paying for time and materials when you do your own AC repair. Rather you are only paying for the price of materials. And with a little research, you can find and purchase from the same suppliers the professional technicians do. That will save you from that middle man mark up.

Learn a new skill: Having knowledge of how things work can be rewarding. So it comes as no surprise that many people really enjoy knowing how to repair their own air systems. For many, learning a new hobby like this leads them to a new career. This may push you to become a certified professional yourself. That way you can be the one charging others the high price of AC repair.

Self Reliant: The most practical reason for learning a new skill is to be self reliant. When you do not need to wait for a technician you are free to tackle any issues much quicker. You also know exactly what work was done and its quality. You never really know what work was done, if anything at all, when somebody else does the work. Being self reliant with regards to your air conditioning repair means you no longer need to worry about being taken advantage of by a repair scam artist.

You can save a lot of money doing your own air conditioning repair. And, learning a new skill allows you to be more independent. As your skills mature, your family and friends will start to beg you for your assistance.
