If the thought of servicing your air conditioner by yourself has come up, you aren’t the only one. While it’s tempting, trying to tune up your own air conditioner could end up costing more money if you make a mistake. Your HVAC system is more intricate than many people realize. Even if you don’t know the first thing about air conditioners, you might be thinking about not scheduling your service appointment to reduce costs. That isn’t a great idea either. Sure, your unit worked perfectly last year, but things change.
Whether you’re thinking of 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 right training: Although we have an abundance of information and helpful tips with the internet, it’s not going to have the same impact as the education an expert gets from certified institutions. Once they’ve completed their training and education, our technicians at Schraer Heating & Air Conditioning are experts in all things HVAC. It’s smarter to have the work done correctly rather than having to face other challenges down the road.
- Technician tune-ups are more thorough: A qualified technician will understand everything that needs to be addressed during a routine maintenance appointment. They’ll assess 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: 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 , resulting in more expensive repairs or even replacement. The experts at Schraer Heating & Air Conditioning can recognize issues before they become too serious—reducing your expenses. And a properly maintained system will run more efficiently, helping your energy bills.
