I didn’t know repairing an A/C system can be dangerous

When my A/C decided to die on me, I didn’t think it would be that big of an issue.

I have always been talented at fixing things, and I figure with a few online HVAC repair videos, that I could fix it myself.

It was a busy day at work for me on Monday, so I decided to delay it til Tuesday. However, I had a few extra errands on Tuesday, so it was delayed longer. I ended up postponing it until Thursday night, and every time I thought about fixing my air conditioner, I got this deep sense of dread. This was incredibly odd, as I have fixed multiple different machines and electronics, and I have never had this feeling before. I went to fix my HVAC machine, and the feeling just became too overpowering, so I decided to stop. Later on in my news feed, an article about how a man died trying to repair an HVAC device on his own, because he made a mistake with the wires, and was electrocuted as a result. He unfortunately wasn’t found until it was too late. I don’t believe in coincidences, so I was kind of wondering if something was trying to warn me that that could be my possible fate as well. I live alone, so chances are no one would know if I were in trouble until it was too late. I decided this would be better handled by a HVAC professional, and once I had the appointment set, the dreadful feeling went away. It was really strange.
