I can’t believe I tore up my A/C when I was trying to fix it

It started out okay, but before too long, I realized that I had no idea what I was doing

I can’t believe I tore up my air conditioning unit last week when I was trying to fix it myself. I just didn’t want to call a professional HVAC technician to do it. I guess I’m kind of a cheapskate, when it comes right down to it. Even though I am certainly not well versed in the heating and cooling industry at all, I thought I could fix it myself. I noticed that the house wasn’t cooling down the way it was supposed to last week. The temperature outside was really heating up and so I assumed that my smart thermostat would adjust as needed so that the house would continue to be at the optimum temperature. Well, that isn’t what happened. The house kept getting hotter and hotter and that’s when I decided to try and work on the A/C myself. Well, I guess I had delusions of grandeur at first and I thought I was just going to be able to read a couple of articles on an HVAC blog and be able to fix it. I also even watched a couple of do it yourself videos online with ways to fix your own air conditioning systems. I thought that I could read up on it and just fix the A/C myself without calling for a professional. It started out okay, but before too long, I realized that I had no idea what I was doing. I ended up messing up the air conditioning even more than it already was. I gave up and called the HVAC company that I’ve used before, but it cost me a lot of money to pay for the A/C repairs.
