Safety Matters

No matter how tempted you are to try and fix your propane appliances yourself, please don’t. It could prove dangerous for you and your family. Or you might end up further damaging your equipment. All of your propane appliances should be installed, maintained, and repaired by a trained professional like the ones at Hocon.

Hocon cares about the safety of our customers. That’s why we strongly discourage you from trying to fix your propane appliances yourself. Leave it to the professionals instead. A professional will have the proper knowledge and the correct tools for the advanced technology used in most modern propane appliances. And many of the required tools aren’t available at your local home improvement store. A trained professional will also be better able to identify any safety concerns you might miss as an amateur. Any money you might save trying to do it yourself isn’t worth the potential harm a mistake could lead to for you or your family.

Appliance Care

Repairing your propane appliances yourself might look like a fun challenge. Or you might think it looks very straightforward. But the truth is propane appliances often contain delicate parts that require expert handling. You simply won’t get enough skill or expertise by watching videos online. Our professionals have extensive training. And they are constantly adding to their knowledge base to keep up with the latest technology. This allows them to perform their work as efficiently and safely as possible.

As an amateur, you could easily make a costly or dangerous mistake when trying to repair your propane appliances yourself. And chances are you’ll end up needing to call a professional to fix the original problem as well as any new problems your failed attempts lead to. So trying to save money could end up costing you more in the end. Don’t risk it!

Your propane appliances are an investment. You should protect that investment by getting professional repairs. Think about how much a new water heater or furnace would cost. Weigh that against your temptation to try and fix it yourself and imagine if your attempts forced you to have to replace the appliance.

Finally, trying to repair your propane appliance yourself could void the warranty.
