Are you saying there is nothing a Homeowner could do on their own dealing with HVAC?
Couldn't someone have a question regarding filters, pilot lights, maint, etc...?

I don't agree with your statement "unregistered"

By the way, please sign you posts so we know who were talking to, Thanks!

I disagree with that statement also. There are some things that many home owners might feel comfortable doing, and many that are not comfortable working on mechanical systems in their homes. Some just want to be informed on how things work so they might not get ripped off when they have to call in a service tech.
My self I am comfortable doing most things with the furnace I have saved a few hundred dollars doing what I can, but I also know that there are times when you need to call a pro.

I installed my own air conditioning split system. Ran all the piping, sweat the connections, installed the new coil and had a duct connection bent for me and installed it myself. Vacuumed it with borrowed equipment. So I also disagree with that statement. It's been working great for over 2 years.

I changed out all the thermostats in my condo. There's one in every room.

What post Flor? This whole topic?

Ya don't know how bad it hurts me to give out free roof advice. Every tradesman thinks their trade is gold and should only be done by a pro, and chances are we are all right but home owners will always try the stuff themselves, no matter what it is, for obvious reasons.

Sorry for the confusion.

HA! It looks like I was disagreeing with Grump. I know nothing about HVAC, but I did think that other post was uneeded.

Its quite funny sometimes the situations we get into.Why is it a big problem to help someone out of a jam? Is it always about the mighty dollar or maybe we all need to look in the mirror and think about our ability to change someones predicament! I can sure promise you that if you take a little time to be a human being with a little compassion,people will always remember that and it willcome back to you 10 fold! Show a little compassion and consideration to your fellow human being and see how much farther youll progress in this world!

ffirst, you posted to a 7 year old thread.

second; hvac has legal restrictions that prevent much of it from being DIY (unless the "yourself" is a licensed hvac tech with the appropriate licensing).
