Why You Need a Professional to Conduct AC Maintenance

September 12, 2018

If you’ve ever considered doing your own air conditioner maintenance to save money, you’re not alone. While it’s appealing, trying to tune up your own air conditioner provides the potential for bigger expenses and errors. Your HVAC system is more complicated than you might think. Even if DIY isn’t your thing, 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 that doesn’t mean it will continue that way forever.

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 necessary 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. Once they’ve completed their training and education, our technicians at Freed Heating & Air Conditioning are experts in all things HVAC. It’s much easier to trust their work now than having to make an emergency AC repair after some well-intentioned DIY work.
  • Technician tune ups are more comprehensive: The professionals will take a look at all of the different components during the appointment. They’ll assess your thermostat settings, refrigerant level, electrical and moving components and your system controls. They are also able to recognize any symptoms of potential issues.
  • Professional tune ups can save you money: It’s not always easy for homeowners to understand indications of a potential problem. Continuing to run your unit could cause serious damage , resulting in more expensive repairs or even replacement. The experts at Freed Heating & Air Conditioning can acknowledge issues before they become too serious—reducing your expenses. And a properly maintained system will run more efficiently, helping your energy bills.
