If you’ve considered saving money by performing your own HVAC maintenance, you’re not alone. While it’s tempting, trying to tune up your own air conditioner may result in more expenses or damage to your system. Your air conditioner is more intricate than many people realize. Even if DIY isn’t your thing, you might be thinking about postponing your yearly appointment to avoid the extra cost. That could be another costly mistake. Maybe you haven’t had any challenges with your system recently, but things change.

Whether you’re thinking of 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 necessary training: Although we have an abundance of information and helpful tips with the internet, it won’t provide the education a professional gets from certified institutions. Following their education, our technicians at 1st Choice Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. are experts in all things HVAC. It’s much easier to trust their work now than having to make an emergency AC repair after some well-intentioned DIY work.
  • Technician tune ups are more thorough: A qualified technician will understand everything that needs to be addressed during a routine maintenance appointment. They’ll assess 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 unit could cause serious damage that means you’ll need a costly repair or replacement down the road. One of the experts from 1st Choice Heating & Air Conditioning, 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.
