Can I Replace my Own Blower Motor?

Like many home repairs, it’s possible to replace a blower motor yourself. However, unless you’ve had experience with home repairs and understand what goes into blower motor replacement and installation, you’ll want to contact an HVAC professional who can save you time, energy, and money while giving you tips on how your system works.

Factors to Consider

When replacing a blower motor, you’ll first want to select the one that matches your HVAC system. Here are several factors to consider:

  • Type of drive (belt driven or direct drive)

  • Motor diameter

  • Motor shaft diameter and length

  • Voltage

  • Horsepower

  • Speeds

  • Rotation direction

  • Size of the run capacitor (if required)

  • Mounting method

Pay attention to these factors — if you choose the wrong model, it could have a serious impact on your HVAC system.

Blowing Time and Money

Even though most blower motors serve the same purpose, different models are meant to go with specific HVAC units. So, if you decide to tackle the motor replacement yourself, you may find yourself spending more time and money on parts and methods that don’t solve your problem.

Let the Pros Handle it

Replacing and installing your own blower motor can be overwhelming and time-consuming. An HVAC professional can have your blower motor up and running in just a couple hours, saving you from missteps and frustration.
