Why You Need a Professional to Conduct AC Maintenance

September 12, 2018

If you’ve considered saving money by performing your own HVAC maintenance, you aren’t the only one. While it’s tempting, trying to tune up your own air conditioner could end up costing more money if you make a mistake. Your air conditioner is more intricate than many people realize. 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. Sure, your unit worked perfectly last year, but things change.

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 necessary training: Although we have an abundance of information and helpful tips with the internet, you probably can’t beat the education an expert gets from certified institutions. After going through their training, our technicians at Breathe Healthier Air are experts in everything related to heating and air conditioning. 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.
  • Tune ups can save you money in the long run: 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 that means you’ll need a costly repair or replacement down the road. The professionals at Breathe Healthier Air 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.

But don’t worry, you still have time to have a professional come out for your annual maintenance.
