If you’ve ever considered doing your own air conditioner maintenance to save money, you aren’t the only one. While it’s tempting, trying to tune up your own air conditioner may result in more expenses or damage to your system. Your machine is more intricate than many people realize. Even if DIY isn’t your thing, you might be thinking about not scheduling your service appointment to reduce costs. That could be another costly mistake. Sure, your unit worked perfectly last year, but things change.
Whether you’re considering doing maintenance yourself or skipping it altogether, take a look at some of the benefits with selecting a qualified technician to take a look at your system:
- 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 won’t provide the education a technician gets from certified institutions. Following their education, our technicians at Clean Air HVAC 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 thorough: During a maintenance appointment, a HVAC technician checks to make sure everything about your system is in working order. They’ll assess your thermostat settings, refrigerant level, electrical and moving components and your system controls. They are also able to recognize any symptoms of potential issues.
- Tune ups can save you money in the long run: It’s not always easy for homeowners to understand indications of a potential problem. Continuing to run your unit could cause serious damage that means you’ll need a costly repair or replacement down the road. One of the experts from Clean Air HVAC can recognize 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.
But don’t worry, you still have time to have a professional come out for your annual maintenance. Clean Air HVAC is here to help ensure your air conditioner is running as it should. Contact us at 925-233-6238 to schedule an appointment with us. You’ll be confident knowing your system has your back.
