If you’ve ever considered doing your own air conditioner maintenance to save money, you aren’t the only one. While it’s appealing, 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 you aren’t a handyman, you might be thinking about postponing your yearly appointment to avoid the extra cost. That could also lead to more expensive results. Sure, your unit worked perfectly last year, 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 right training: While you can learn a lot about your home’s system through your owner’s guide and the internet, it’s not going to have the same impact as the education a professional gets from certified institutions. Following their education, our technicians at Stephen Hurst Pack Heating and Cooling are experts in whatever your HVAC system needs. 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 in-depth: During a maintenance appointment, an HVAC technician checks to make sure everything about your system is in working order. They’ll check your thermostat settings, refrigerant level, electrical and moving components and your system controls. As part of the maintenance, they are also on the lookout for any signs of a more serious problem.
- Professional tune-ups can save you money: It’s not always easy for homeowners to understand indications of a potential problem. Continuing to run your air conditioner could cause serious damage , resulting in more expensive repairs or even replacement. The professionals at Stephen Hurst Pack Heating and Cooling can acknowledge issues before they become too serious—saving you money in the end. In addition, maintenance on your system helps it run more efficiently, saving you even more.
