If you’ve considered saving money by performing your own HVAC maintenance, you’re not alone. While it’s appealing, trying to tune up your own air conditioner provides the potential for bigger expenses and errors. Your machine 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. You may not have experienced any issues over the recent months, but that doesn’t mean it will continue that way forever.
Whether you’re considering 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: 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. Once they’ve completed their training and education, our technicians at Phelps Heating & Cooling are experts in whatever your HVAC system needs. 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 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. They are also able to recognize any symptoms of potential issues.
- Tune ups can save you money in the long run: It’s not always easy for homeowners to understand indications of a potential problem. Continuing to run your air conditioner could cause serious damage that ends with expensive repairs or even replacement. The professionals at Phelps Heating & Cooling can acknowledge 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.
There’s still time to schedule your annual maintenance appointment. Phelps Heating & Cooling is here to help ensure your air conditioner is running as it should. Call us at 270-358-3167 to arrange an appointment with us. You can rest easy knowing it’s been professionally maintained and ready to keep you cool.
