I replaced parts in attempting to fix my gas furnace

I will begin this missive by saying how I am entirely not qualified to try to maintenance anything in my house unless it is a laptop or tablet.

  • I have a job as a technology director at a large corporation, and that lets myself and others diagnose and also maintenance all sorts of tablets and net based working concerns.

Apparently, this kind of talent went to my head when my home natural gas furnace stopped entirely working last weekend. I knew that my natural gas furnace was outside of my league, but I figured that it couldn’t be much more weird or bizarre than the stuff that I diagnosed, so I began researching Heating and A/C concerns online, then once I felt idiotically confident, I began removing piece after piece of my natural gas furnace, looking for anything that I had just study on the HVAC manuals. I began replacing part after part, costing myself hundreds of dollars to maintenance my natural gas furnace. After quite a time, I realized that I unquestionably wasn’t going to be able to maintenance my own natural gas furnace, and I called an Heating and A/C professional. When the Heating and A/C professional finally arrived, he could tell that I had messed with it. I explained what the original problems were, and I told the Heating and A/C professional about every part that I had replaced. I could see that he was grimacing when I talked, and I realized that I had spent a ton of money on my natural gas furnace. After I finished talking, the Heating and A/C professional quickly replaced my control unit, and the natural gas furnace kicked on immediately. I felt so ashamed. What would have been a $150 cost for the Heating and A/C professional was a $600 cost because I was prideful. I have learned my lesson, and I promise I will leave my natural gas furnace to the pros next time.
