If you’ve considered saving money by performing your own HVAC maintenance, it’s not as uncommon as you might think. 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 you aren’t a handyman, you might be thinking about skipping your annual appointment to save some cash. That could be another costly mistake. Sure, your unit worked perfectly last year, but things change.
Whether you’re considering 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 appropriate 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 an expert gets from certified institutions. After going through their training, our technicians at Knoechel Heating Company 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: The professionals will take a look at all of the different components during the appointment. 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.
