So, should we not put any effort into reducing DIY of HVAC? I am getting very mixed signals here. Are we making excuses for why DIY should be left alone? If there is a viable fight that will actually reduce DIY of HVAC, I will support it. But if all we are going to do is complain about it without any results, then I say we just let it happen and work with it instead of against it.One could say everything started as DIY. Even Henry Ford was a DIYer.
Then again, let's go ahead and take old Henry Ford as an example. Can you make your own vehicle from existing components? Of course you can. Can you get that vehicle to be legal for licensing and putting in operation on the road? Probably so. Would there be so many regulations and testing and hundreds of hours of paper work in order to allow that DIYed vehicle to be licensed? YOU BETCHA!
So, if we go the route of the vehicle requirements, we just may see as many HVAC DIYers as we do vehicle DIYers.
