Professional AC Maintenance

The Benefits of Hiring a Qualified Technician for Maintenance

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 provides the potential for bigger expenses and errors. Your HVAC system is more complicated than you might think. Even if you aren’t a handyman, you might be thinking about postponing your yearly appointment to avoid the extra cost. That could be another costly mistake. Sure, your unit worked perfectly last year, but that doesn’t mean it will continue that way forever.

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: 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 Tokay Heating and Air Conditioning are experts in whatever your HVAC system needs. 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 in-depth: The professionals will take a look at all of the different components during the appointment. They’ll assess your thermostat settings, refrigerant level, electrical and moving components and your system controls. While they’re checking your system, they’ll be on the look out for indications of more serious issues.
  • You can see cost-savings after a professional tune up: 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 means you’ll need a costly repair or replacement down the road. One of the experts from Tokay Heating and Air Conditioning can acknowledge issues before they become too serious—saving you money in the end. Proper maintenance keeps your system running efficiently and helps keep those utility bills lower.
