If the thought of servicing your air conditioner by yourself has come up, you’re not alone. While it’s tempting, trying to tune up your own air conditioner provides the potential for bigger expenses and errors. Your machine is more complex than it may appear. Even if you aren’t a handyman, you might be thinking about not scheduling your service appointment to reduce costs. That could be another costly mistake. Maybe you haven’t had any challenges with your system recently, but who’s to say it will last.
Whether you’re thinking of 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: As the internet has given us access to a lot of information and guidance, it’s not going to have the same impact as the education an expert gets from certified institutions. Following their education, our technicians at Gilray Heating and Cooling are experts in all things HVAC. 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 in-depth: 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. While they’re checking your system, they’ll be on the lookout for indications of more serious issues.
- You can see cost-savings after a professional tune-up: A professional will have an easier time looking for any potential issues. Continuing to run your air conditioner could cause serious damage , resulting in more expensive repairs or even replacement. The professionals at Gilray Heating and Cooling can acknowledge issues before they become too serious—reducing your expenses. In addition, maintenance on your system helps it run more efficiently, saving you even more.
