The Importance of Professional Air Conditioner Maintenance

September 12, 2018

If the thought of servicing your air conditioner by yourself has come up, you aren’t the only one. While it’s tempting, trying to tune up your own air conditioner provides the potential for bigger expenses and errors. Your HVAC system is more complex than it may appear. Even if DIY isn’t your thing, you might be thinking about not scheduling your service appointment to reduce costs. That could be another costly mistake. Maybe you haven’t had any challenges with your system recently, but who’s to say it will last.

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 right training: Although we have an abundance of information and helpful tips with 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 Jack's Heating, Cooling, Stoves & Fireplaces are experts in whatever your HVAC system needs. It’s going to save time by doing it right the first time than having to face other challenges down the road.
  • Technician tune ups are more comprehensive: 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.
  • Tune ups can save you money in the long run: A professional will have an easier time looking for any potential issues. Continuing to run your air conditioner could cause serious damage that means you’ll need a costly repair or replacement down the road.
