If the thought of servicing your air conditioner by yourself has come up, you’re not alone. While it’s attractive, 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 DIY isn’t your thing, you might be thinking about postponing your yearly appointment to avoid the extra cost. That could also lead to more expensive results. Sure, your unit worked perfectly last year, but things change.
Whether you’re contemplating 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. After going through their training, our technicians at YES R&M Inc. are experts in all things HVAC. It’s smarter to have the work done correctly rather than having to make an emergency AC repair after some well-intentioned DIY work.
- Technician tune ups are more thorough: During a maintenance appointment, a 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.
- You can see cost-savings after a professional tune up: You might not be able to recognize the early signs of a problem with your air conditioning. Continuing to run your air conditioner could cause serious damage that ends with expensive repairs or even replacement. The professionals at YES R&M Inc. can identify issues before they become too serious—eliminating extra costs to you. And a properly maintained system will run more efficiently, helping your energy bills.
