| Clarke & Rush |

Holy HVAC!

We know it is tempting to take on home improvement projects by yourself, and often enough, it turns out just fine. But then there are the times it doesn’t. In this article we rounded up the top 5 weirdest things we could find. The internet does not disappoint! Let’s take the lead from these DIYers and dive into these head first.

1. One more ought to do it!

We are not quite sure what is going on here? Either someone got duct happy, or they’re prepping their Halloween haunted house. It certainly is scary, whichever the case may be.

2. When the guy in shipping says he can fix it…

Hey, we know he’s probably a great guy, but letting Bobby the box boy fix your HVAC to save money is likely going to cost you in the end. To be honest, it is an incredible make-shift duct, I guess. I mean, the cats would love it!

3. UH…..What?

We assume there was no permit pulled for this one? Even if it did pass code
(it didn’t) the neighbors just took a huge hit on their home values.
Although, maybe this is the new thing in tract homes? It is 2020 after all.

4. There you go Grandma! I fixed it.

This is just absurd! They should have duct-taped that register up and ran wide of the fan for better circulation. Just playing. We are certain this DIYer didn’t know a thing about what they were doing. Makes you want to see where the HVAC unit is located, right!?

5. Nah! The Fan’s fine. It’s the Air Conditioner that won’t work.

This is just a whole bunch of nope. Then, it’s strapped to a bunch more nope. Just. Nope. Save yourself the heartache, the extra expense and the incurred shame that comes from becoming an internet FAIL. Call a licensed professional to maintain, repair, or replace your HVAC. You’ll be so very glad you did.
