DIY? Or Call a Guy?
Ahh… Doing it Yourself. This concept of DIY sparks a spectrum of opinions. Some people are all for it, others would never do it, while others just do not like when their family members attempt to do it. The thing is, many people typically think doing it yourself is cheaper. Often it is, but sometimes it is not. For example, if your furnace or water heater breaks, you may think that it would be less expensive to just order a part or new unit online and try to fix it yourself. If you have never done this before, you could end up creating a much more expensive problem. When thinking about prices differences between DIY and calling an HVAC company remember…
The HVAC Company’s price usually includes:
- Installation and labor
- Sales tax
For certain smaller items, you say to yourself that you know what you are doing, you can just order the part online and “DIY” it. However, for bigger issues sometimes the time, effort and frustration of installing a part yourself is not worth the savings. Companies like FLAME will install the part, answer questions about its maintenance and the price will also include a warranty allowing you to not have to worry about what happens if it breaks. Furthermore, cities often require certain permits for installation. Your HVAC company will take care of getting these permits for you.
Yes, ordering online can be less expensive but it is important to know that in the grand scheme of things, the product you are getting online is not the same overall package of what you would get with an HVAC company.
