As a homeowner, you have plenty of opportunities to carry out DIY work on your home. Solving problems associated with your air conditioning and heating units, however, is one field of home improvement that should be left up to the professionals. If you try to repair a broken air conditioning or heating unit, you may end up:
Harming Yourself or Others
An intricate network of wires and gas lines enables your home to be cooled and heated just the way you need it. The same infrastructure that allows you to keep your home comfortable year round has the capacity to cause serious harm if it is handled incorrectly. Potential dangers associated with trying to repair your HVAC system on your own include electrocution, serious burns, and the hard-to-detect release of harmful carbon monoxide gas.
Making Expensive Mistakes
Unless you are a trained and certified HVAC technician, efforts you make to repair your air conditioning or heating unit could backfire, exacerbating existing problems and further compromising the integrity of your air conditioner or heating unit. It is also possible that you could cause structural damage to your home.
Voiding Your Service Plan
If you have a service agreement with your HVAC company, carrying out repairs on your own could void the coverage provided under the service plan.
Covering Up/Delaying Problems
Even if the efforts you make to repair your air conditioning or heating units seem to run smoothly, there is no guarantee that your problems have been solved. They may be temporarily covered up, only to return with more severity.
The next time you hear unfamiliar noises coming from your heating or air conditioning unit or you find that your HVAC system does not have the capacity to keep you comfortable the way it once did, do not pull out the gloves and the toolbox. Instead, contact your local family-run HVAC repair and installation service.

For Northern Ohio families, the hot water heater can account for a very large portion of energy bills. Keeping your water heater properly maintained helps keep energy costs low and can prevent the unpleasant surprise of an icy shower or bath. Here are some signs that your water heater is ready to be replaced:
1. Cold Showers
You may find that your hot showers are not lasting as long as they used to, or that the water is not heating up at all. If your water heater is not providing adequate heat or hot water storage, then it is probably time that you had it replaced.
2. Leaks and Puddles
Another sign of an old and faulty water heater is the presence of puddles around the tank. Also, check for small leaks or signs of corrosion around its plumbing connections. If the walls of the heater or its connection points have been compromised, it is time for a new water heater.
3. Unusual Noises
An old water heater may make strange noises. Banging, bursting and bumping sounds could be signs of a big problem with your unit.
4. Long-Expired Warranty
If your water heater is simply very old, then it may be time to get a new one. The age of a water heater should be considered alongside any of the previously mentioned problems, as an old heater with any of these problems has probably seen its final days.
Keep in mind that water heaters are constantly becoming more efficient and more convenient, and a newer unit will likely better fit your lifestyle. At Lew's Reliable Heat and Air Conditioning, we can help you determine if the time is right for an upgrade and find a new unit that is right for your needs. We pride ourselves on having the most advanced, efficient water heaters available. Call (440) 210-3748 for all of your water heating or home air conditioning and heating needs.
