If you’ve considered saving money by performing your own HVAC maintenance, you aren’t the only one. While it’s attractive, trying to tune up your own air conditioner provides the potential for bigger expenses and errors. Your air conditioner is more complex than it may appear. Even if DIY isn’t your thing, you might be thinking about skipping your annual appointment to save some cash. That could also lead to more expensive results. You may not have experienced any issues over the recent months, but that doesn’t mean it will continue that way forever.
Whether you’re considering doing maintenance yourself or skipping it altogether, check out the benefits of hiring a professional to check out your machine before you make a decision you could regret:
- Technicians have the appropriate training: As the internet has given us access to a lot of information and guidance, you probably can’t beat the education a professional gets from certified institutions. After going through their training, our technicians at Olde Towne Heating & Air are experts in everything related to heating and air conditioning. It’s smarter to have the work done correctly rather than having to make an emergency AC repair after some well-intentioned DIY work.
- Technician tune ups are more comprehensive: A qualified technician will understand everything that needs to be addressed during a routine maintenance appointment. They’ll review your thermostat settings, refrigerant level, electrical and moving components and your system controls. They are also able to recognize any symptoms of potential issues.
- You can see cost-savings after a professional tune up: You might not be able to recognize the early signs of a problem with your air conditioning. Continuing to run your unit could cause serious damage that means you’ll need a costly repair or replacement down the road. The professionals at Olde Towne Heating & Air can recognize issues before they become too serious—saving you money in the end. Proper maintenance keeps your system running efficiently and helps keep those utility bills lower.
