No cooling from the air ducts

Learning how to deal with your limitations is just as important as maximizing your strengths.

That’s true in just about every facet of life, and but it’s not always a straight-forward thing to do, and it’s particularly hard to see, accept and adapt to your limitations if you can’t see them, but clearly, when it came to the HVAC unit, I wasn’t paying attention to the reality of my limitations.

I’ve been interested in machines since I was little. I’d take broken stuff and slip out of the central air conditioning to the basement where I had a sort of workbench. There, I would carefully dismantle the broken item in order to understand how it went together. I followed that passion and am now working as an engineer, but while I have a lot of training and fantastic mechanical understanding, I have my limitations. For one, I’m not a trained, licensed and certified HVAC professional and I think this. But when I came home to find a heat pump running but no cooling coming from the air ducts, I decided to solve the problem. And that’s the way I come at things, yet, I also think that you simply can’t solve problems without the correct tools. I absolutely didn’t have the correct training or actual tools to diagnose and repair the residential HVAC. Still, I persisted until I ended up shutting down the entire HVAC unit. That’s when I finally called the HVAC supplier for assistance. And that’s when I found out that my messing around had voided the warranty on my HVAC equipment.
