Be Patient

Depending on what type of heating or cooling system you’re working with, you may be in for a tough time trying to figure out how it works. However, that doesn’t mean it’s not possible, you’re just going to need to be patient with it. In order to cut down on the time it takes to learn your system, try watching a few videos online or picking up an HVAC book at your local bookstore. Here at Jenin Supply, we’re fully supportive of your DIY project. All though we don’t perform service calls, you can always feel free to video call with us if there’s a specific issue you’re facing with your HVAC system.

Use Quality Parts

Most homeowners don’t keep a close watch over what kind of parts their HVAC company is using. Many people will simply look at customer reviews and judge based off of that the quality of parts their company is using. However, when it comes to DIY repairs, it’s up to you to find those quality parts. Although you could chance buying your parts online, you never know where these are coming from and whether they’re actually worth the price you’re paying. It’s generally safer to buy parts from a brick and mortar store so that if you run into an issue with it, you can return it immediately without having to wait weeks for it to ship and get your money back.   

Start With The Basics

The number one rule you should go by when you’re just getting into DIY repairs is to start with the basics. Don’t go straight into AC replacement or furnace replacement as your first project. You need to be much more acquainted with it before you do this. Additionally, if you’re experiencing issues with your system, always diagnose from the outside in. In other words, don’t immediately go in and take apart your system. Instead, check to make sure your thermostat is working, clean your air ducts, replace your filter. Then if your system still isn’t working, you can investigate further.
