Why You Should Avoid Doing HVAC Repairs Yourself

Have you always considered yourself a handy person? If you can fix your car or your sink, you may be tempted to take a look at your HVAC unit. For the sake of your safety and wallet, we advise you to reconsider. Trying to conduct HVAC repairs yourself can be a dicey, timely and costly matter if you are not a trained and experienced professional. As one of the leading heating and cooling companies in the Northwest, Bob’s Heating & Air Conditioning has the experienced, certified technicians needed to get the job done right. Check out the following reasons why you should refrain from engaging in all HVAC repairs.


Conducting HVAC repairs yourself without any prior knowledge can be dangerous. Often times, what looks like an “easy fix” is actually far more complicated than it appears. HVAC units are highly technical mechanisms with many parts and components. Heating and cooling units also use harmful chemicals that can be deadly if not handled properly. Your safety is at risk when it comes to DIY HVAC repairs. Our HVAC technicians are NATE certified, O6A Electrical Licensed or have a Trainee Card, EPA/CFC licensed, trusted, trained, supervised, background checked, drug tested, licensed, bonded and insured. Rest assured, as they are trained to handle HVAC repairs in a safe and efficient manner.


Many HVAC repairs require specialized tools and parts that most people do not already have on hand. All of our trucks have a large stock of parts available to ensure your repair is done correctly and efficiently. In the event that a part does need to be ordered, Bob’s Heating has a dedicated team to ordering your part and getting you rescheduled right away. If your part is under warranty, Bob’s Heating will take care of the warranty processing for you to ensure your repair is completely hassle-free.


With decades of experience and education, our Trust Certified technicians are seasoned veterans when it comes to diagnosing problems or system failures. All of our service technicians go through a rigorous training process upon employment, followed by continuous education on the latest products, technology, and troubleshooting during weekly training meetings with industry experts at our very own Bob’s University. They can also perform preventive maintenance procedures and ensure that your equipment is operating according to specifications recommended by the manufacturer. Take a look at our Guardian Maintenance programs to ensure you are getting the most from your HVAC system.
