The Importance of Professional Air Conditioner Maintenance

September 12, 2018

If you’ve considered saving money by performing your own HVAC maintenance, you’re not alone. While it’s tempting, trying to tune up your own air conditioner could end up costing more money if you make a mistake. Your machine is more complicated than you might think. Even if you aren’t a handyman, you might be thinking about not scheduling your service appointment to reduce costs. That could also lead to more expensive results. You may not have experienced any issues over the recent months, but who’s to say it will last.

Whether you’re contemplating 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 appropriate training: Although we have an abundance of information and helpful tips with the internet, it won’t provide the education an expert gets from certified institutions. Once they’ve completed their training and education, our technicians at Lanz Furnace and Fireplace are experts in all things HVAC. It’s going to save time by doing it right the first time than having to make costly repairs after.
  • Technician tune ups are more thorough: A qualified technician will understand everything that needs to be addressed during a routine maintenance appointment. 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.
  • Tune ups can save you money in the long run: It’s not always easy for homeowners to understand indications of a potential problem.
