Are you a big DIY-er around your home?
If so, you may have considered tackling the repair of your home’s propane appliances on your own. You think you might save a few bucks on repair costs, and learn some new things.
DON’T DO IT.
This can not only be bad for your equipment, but it can be dangerous if not deadly for you and your family.
Your propane appliances need to be installed, maintained, and repaired by trained, experienced service technicians like the ones at Parker Gas.
Safety is the top priority for the Parker Gas service technicians. They are knowledgeable in all matters of propane safety. They have the tools needed for the advanced technology in many propane appliances, and these are not tools you’re going to get at the local home improvement store. They also have the skills to spot not only technical problems with your appliance, but any safety concerns.
Is any money you could save by attempting to fix your propane appliance yourself really worth the potential loss of life and property?
Propane appliances may look straightforward, but there are often a lot of delicate parts which need expert handling. And no amount of online DIY videos is going to give non-professionals the knowledge or skill to do that.
If you mess up, you could have to have a professional come out to not only fix the original problem, but the problems created with your attempt at repair. You’ll be out even more money!
Think about how much your propane appliances cost, with installation. For example, a furnace costs about $4,400. A water heater costs about $1,100. A propane fireplace can start at more than $2,000. A range can cost $1,000 or more. If your repair efforts go really wrong, you could be facing replacing your propane appliance.
Finally, many propane appliance manufacturers require that your appliance be installed, maintained, and repaired by professional service technicians. Your repair job could void your warranty.
