Can I Install An Air Conditioning Unit Myself?

Do you consider yourself a handy person? If so, you may have considered taking on HVAC installations by yourself.

Here at Island Airco, we’re well aware of the allure of DIY projects and the way they can help you save money. However, when it comes to installing an air conditioning unit all by yourself — there are some hazardous safety risks to consider beforehand.

When you work with our team, you can rest assured you’ll enjoy high-quality home services at affordable prices with no extra hassle. From HVAC installation appointments to tune-ups and indoor air quality inspections — we’ve got your AC needs covered every time we walk through your doors.

Risks Of DIY AC Installation

There are many risks associated with installing an air conditioning system by yourself. Many of these concerns can result in costly damage to your home and dangerous conditions.

Without prior experience in the HVAC industry, the threat of electrical issues is likely. The electrical circuit system for your air conditioning unit needs to be handled carefully in order to avoid starting an electrical fire. Electrocution is another dangerous risk when dealing with exposed wiring.

Water or refrigerant leaks are also common occurrences for those who aren’t HVAC professionals. Additionally, unless you’re certified by the Environmental Protection Agency, you aren’t legally allowed to handle refrigerant on your own.

Benefits Of Professional Air Conditioning Installation

When you trust an experienced technician to replace your cooling system, you eliminate many of the risks of self-installation. This service can provide your home with many notable advantages. A few benefits of having a professional install your air conditioner are:

  • It reduces the likelihood of future repairs
  • Your warranty will remain valid
  • You’ll meet local building codes
  • It ensures correct AC sizing and measurements
  • Your system will be more efficient

You can reduce many of the hazards of DIY AC installation when our team is by your side.
