If you’ve considered saving money by performing your own HVAC maintenance, it’s not as uncommon as you might think. While it’s tempting, trying to tune up your own air conditioner may result in more expenses or damage to your system. Your HVAC system is more complex than it may appear. Even if you aren’t a handyman, 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 thinking of 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 won’t provide the education a professional gets from certified institutions. Following their education, our technicians at Kohles & Bach Heating & Cooling are experts in whatever your HVAC system needs. It’s smarter to have the work done correctly rather than having to face other challenges down the road.
  • Technician tune-ups are more comprehensive: A qualified technician will understand everything that needs to be addressed during a routine maintenance appointment. They’ll review your thermostat settings, refrigerant level, electrical and moving components and your system controls. They are also able to recognize any symptoms of potential issues.
  • 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 system could cause serious damage , resulting in more expensive repairs or even replacement. One of the experts from Kohles & Bach Heating & Cooling can identify issues before they become too serious—eliminating extra costs to you. Proper maintenance keeps your system running efficiently and helps keep those utility bills lower.
