If you’ve ever considered doing your own air conditioner maintenance to save money, it’s not as uncommon as you might think. While it’s attractive, 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 you aren’t a handyman, you might be thinking about skipping your annual appointment to save some cash. That could also lead to more expensive results. 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 necessary training: As the internet has given us access to a lot of information and guidance, it won’t provide the education a professional gets from certified institutions. Once they’ve completed their training and education, our technicians at Lanz Furnace and Fireplace are experts in everything related to heating and air conditioning. It’s much easier to trust their work now 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. As part of the maintenance, they are also on the lookout for any signs of a more serious problem.
- 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 unit could cause serious damage , resulting in more expensive repairs or even replacement. The professionals at Lanz Furnace and Fireplace can acknowledge issues before they become too serious—eliminating extra costs to you. And a properly maintained system will run more efficiently, helping your energy bills.
