If you’ve considered saving money by performing your own HVAC maintenance, 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 DIY isn’t your thing, you might be thinking about skipping your annual appointment to save some cash. That isn’t a great idea either. Sure, your unit worked perfectly last year, but things change.
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: While you can learn a lot about your home’s system through your owner’s guide and the internet, it’s not going to have the same impact as the education a professional gets from certified institutions. Once they’ve completed their training and education, our technicians at Three Rivers Heating & Cooling are experts in all things HVAC. It’s smarter to have the work done correctly rather than having to make costly repairs after.
- Technician tune ups are more comprehensive: 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. 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 air conditioner could cause serious damage that ends with expensive repairs or even replacement. One of the experts from Three Rivers Heating & Cooling can recognize issues before they become too serious—saving you money in the end. And a properly maintained system will run more efficiently, helping your energy bills.
