The Benefits of Hiring a Qualified Technician for Maintenance

September 12, 2018

If the thought of servicing your air conditioner by yourself has come up, you aren’t the only one. While it’s attractive, trying to tune up your own air conditioner may result in more expenses or damage to your system. Your HVAC system is more complicated than you might think. 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. Maybe you haven’t had any challenges with your system recently, but that doesn’t mean it will continue that way forever.

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 right 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. After going through their training, our technicians at Gilray Heating and Cooling 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 comprehensive: 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: It’s not always easy for homeowners to understand indications of a potential problem. Continuing to run your air conditioner could cause serious damage that means you’ll need a costly repair or replacement down the road. One of the experts from Gilray Heating and Cooling can acknowledge issues before they become too serious—reducing your expenses. And a properly maintained system will run more efficiently, helping your energy bills.
