Can I handle the maintenance myself? The inner workings of an HVAC unit are more complex and intricate than you might think.

The sooner you have this fixed, the better because a blocked drain can force water back up, causing major water destruction to your home. Low or leaking refrigerant If all else seems to be fine yet your home is still hot, check your air conditioner’s refrigerant levels.
