If you’ve ever considered doing your own air conditioner maintenance to save money, you’re not alone. While it’s attractive, trying to tune up your own air conditioner provides the potential for bigger expenses and errors. Your machine 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 could be another costly mistake. 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 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’s not going to have the same impact as the education a professional gets from certified institutions. Following their education, our technicians at Freed Heating & Air Conditioning are experts in whatever your HVAC system needs. It’s going to save time by doing it right the first time 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.
  • 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 system could cause serious damage , resulting in more expensive repairs or even replacement. One of the experts from Freed Heating & Air Conditioning can acknowledge issues before they become too serious—eliminating extra costs to you. In addition, maintenance on your system helps it run more efficiently, saving you even more.
