If you’ve ever considered doing your own air conditioner maintenance to save money, you aren’t the only one. While it’s tempting, trying to tune up your own air conditioner could end up costing more money if you make a mistake. Your HVAC system is more complex than it may appear. Even if you aren’t a handyman, 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 things change.
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 appropriate 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. Once they’ve completed their training and education, our technicians at West Michigan Heating & Air Conditioning Services are experts in all things HVAC.

- Technician tune-ups are more thorough: During a maintenance appointment, an HVAC technician checks to make sure everything about your system is in working order. 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 lookout for indications of more serious issues.
- 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 unit could cause serious damage , resulting in more expensive repairs or even replacement.
