Don't DIY, Hire A Pro - don't take on the additional cost of having to repair or fix an improper repair job

January 17, 2017

There are many fun DIY projects that homeowners can take on around their home, but repairing a furnace should not be one of them. DIY home repairs are not as easy as they seem, and while Pinterest-fails might be hilarious, there is nothing funny about a furnace failure. Attempting to repair your own furnace can be costly and dangerous – but don’t worry, our experts at Three Rivers Heating & Cooling in Portland are trained to handle all of your furnace questions and challenges and are always a better first choice than to take care of a problem alone.

Safety
DIY furnace repair is extremely detrimental to your personal safety. Not only could you hurt yourself in the process of repairs, but you could also cause leaks or cause more damage to your system that could change the comfort or safety of your residence. Professionals are trained to repair furnaces safely and appropriately.

Costly
While some people think that DIY repair reduces costs, in many cases it can end up costing homeowners extra money when attempted repairs go awry. There are often times particular tools that are needed to make specific furnace repairs, and when homeowners do not have the proper tools, they could be producing more work for the professional when they are ultimately called. Considering your time and effort is very important before deciding to DIY a furnace repair.
