If the thought of servicing your air conditioner by yourself has come up, you aren’t the only one. While it’s appealing, trying to tune up your own air conditioner could end up costing more money if you make a mistake. Your machine is more complex than it may appear. Even if you aren’t a handyman, you might be thinking about not scheduling your service appointment to reduce costs. That could be another costly mistake. Sure, your unit worked perfectly last year, but who’s to say it will last.
Whether you’re considering doing maintenance yourself or skipping it altogether, take a look at some of the benefits with selecting a qualified technician to take a look at your system:
- Technicians have the appropriate 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 an expert gets from certified institutions. Following their education, our technicians at Thurston Heating & Air Conditioning are experts in whatever your HVAC system needs. It’s much easier to trust their work now rather than having to make an emergency AC repair after some well-intentioned DIY work.
- Technician tune-ups are more in-depth: The professionals will take a look at all of the different components during the 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.
- Professional tune-ups can save you money: 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 that ends with expensive repairs or even replacement. The professionals at Thurston Heating & Air Conditioning can recognize issues before they become too serious—reducing your expenses. Proper maintenance keeps your system running efficiently and helps keep those utility bills lower.
There’s still time to schedule your annual maintenance appointment. Thurston Heating & Air Conditioning will make sure your system is working appropriately.
