If you’ve ever considered doing your own air conditioner maintenance to save money, you’re not alone. While it’s attractive, trying to tune up your own air conditioner provides the potential for bigger expenses and errors. Your HVAC system is more intricate than many people realize. Even if you aren’t a handyman, you might be thinking about not scheduling your service appointment to reduce costs. That could be another costly mistake. Sure, your unit worked perfectly last year, but who’s to say it will last.

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 right training: Although we have an abundance of information and helpful tips with the internet, it won’t provide the education a technician gets from certified institutions. Following their education, our technicians at Total Comfort 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: 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. While they’re checking your system, they’ll be on the look out for indications of more serious 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 air conditioner could cause serious damage that ends with expensive repairs or even replacement. One of the experts from Total Comfort can acknowledge issues before they become too serious—reducing your expenses. And a properly maintained system will run more efficiently, helping your energy bills.

There’s still time to schedule your annual maintenance appointment. Total Comfort is here to help ensure your air conditioner is running as it should. Give us a call at 201-891-1333 or book an appointment with us online. You can rest easy knowing it’s been professionally maintained and ready to keep you cool.
