If you’ve considered saving money by performing your own HVAC maintenance, it’s not as uncommon as you might think. While it’s appealing, trying to tune up your own air conditioner may result in more expenses or damage to your system. Your air conditioner is more complex than it may appear. 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. 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, take a look at some of the benefits with selecting a qualified technician to take a look at your system:

  • Technicians have the appropriate 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 a professional gets from certified institutions. Following their education, our technicians at Van Haaften Plumbing & Heating 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: During a maintenance appointment, a HVAC technician checks to make sure everything about your system is in working order. They’ll check 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.
  • You can see cost-savings after a professional tune up: A professional will have an easier time looking for any potential issues. Continuing to run your system could cause serious damage , resulting in more expensive repairs or even replacement. One of the experts from Van Haaften Plumbing & Heating can identify 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.

It’s not too late to schedule your routine maintenance. Van Haaften Plumbing & Heating will make sure your system is working appropriately.
