If you’ve considered saving money by performing your own HVAC maintenance, it’s not as uncommon as you might think. While it’s attractive, trying to tune up your own air conditioner provides the potential for bigger expenses and errors. Your HVAC system is more complex than it may appear. Even if you aren’t a handyman, you might be thinking about skipping your annual appointment to save some cash. That could be another costly mistake. 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, here are some of the reasons it’s wise to hire an experienced professional to do the maintenance:
- Technicians have the appropriate training: As the internet has given us access to a lot of information and guidance, it’s not going to have the same impact as the education a professional gets from certified institutions. Following their education, our technicians at Smyth Air Conditioning 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 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 system could cause serious damage that means you’ll need a costly repair or replacement down the road. The professionals at Smyth Air Conditioning can identify issues before they become too serious—eliminating extra costs to you. Proper maintenance keeps your system running efficiently and helps keep those utility bills lower.
