If the thought of servicing your air conditioner by yourself has come up, you’re not alone. While it’s appealing, trying to tune up your own air conditioner could end up costing more money if you make a mistake. Your machine is more complex than it may appear. Even if DIY isn’t your thing, you might be thinking about not scheduling your service appointment to reduce costs. That could also lead to more expensive results. Sure, your unit worked perfectly last year, but who’s to say it will last.
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: 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. Once they’ve completed their training and education, our technicians at Durable Service 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 thorough: The professionals will take a look at all of the different components during the 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: It’s not always easy for homeowners to understand indications of a potential problem. Continuing to run your system could cause serious damage that ends with expensive repairs or even replacement. The professionals at Durable Service 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.
