If the thought of servicing your air conditioner by yourself has come up, you aren’t the only one. While it’s appealing, trying to tune up your own air conditioner provides the potential for bigger expenses and errors. Your machine is more intricate than many people realize. Even if you don’t know the first thing about air conditioners, you might be thinking about postponing your yearly appointment to avoid the extra cost. That could also lead to more expensive results. Maybe you haven’t had any challenges with your system recently, but that doesn’t mean it will continue that way forever.
Whether you’re contemplating 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: Although we have an abundance of information and helpful tips with the internet, you probably can’t beat the education a technician gets from certified institutions. Following their education, our technicians at Tokay 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 thorough: 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.
- Professional tune-ups can save you money: It’s not always easy for homeowners to understand indications of a potential problem. 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 Tokay can identify issues before they become too serious—reducing your expenses. And a properly maintained system will run more efficiently, helping your energy bills.
But don’t worry, you still have time to have a professional come out for your annual maintenance. Tokay will make sure your system is working appropriately. Give us a call at 209-257-3156 to book an appointment with us. We’ll make sure your home stays comfortable all through the warmer months.
