If you’ve considered saving money by performing your own HVAC maintenance, 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 air conditioner is more intricate than many people realize. Even if you don’t know the first thing about air conditioners, you might be thinking about not scheduling your service appointment to reduce costs. 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 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 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 technician gets from certified institutions. Following their education, our technicians at Freed Heating & Air Conditioning are experts in everything related to heating and air conditioning. It’s smarter to have the work done correctly rather than having to face other challenges down the road.
- Technician tune-ups are more comprehensive: During a maintenance appointment, an HVAC technician checks to make sure everything about your system is in working order. They’ll check 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: It’s not always easy for homeowners to understand indications of a potential problem. Continuing to run your system could cause serious damage that ends with expensive repairs or even replacement. The experts at Freed Heating & Air Conditioning can recognize 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.
But don’t worry, you still have time to have a professional come out for your annual maintenance. Freed Heating & Air Conditioning is here to make sure your equipment continues to work as efficiently as possible. Call us at 309-323-9584 to schedule an appointment with us.
