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 provides the potential for bigger expenses and errors. Your machine is more complex than it may appear. Even if you aren’t a handyman, you might be thinking about not scheduling your service appointment to reduce costs. 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 contemplating doing maintenance yourself or skipping it altogether, check out the benefits of hiring a professional to check out your machine before you make a decision you could regret:

  • Technicians have the necessary training: Although we have an abundance of information and helpful tips with the internet, it’s not going to have the same impact as the education a professional gets from certified institutions. After going through their training, our technicians at West Michigan Heating & Air Conditioning Services are experts in everything related to heating and air conditioning. 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: 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. They are also able to recognize any symptoms of potential issues.
  • You can see cost-savings after a professional tune up: You might not be able to recognize the early signs of a problem with your air conditioning. Continuing to run your air conditioner could cause serious damage , resulting in more expensive repairs or even replacement. One of the experts from West Michigan Heating & Air Conditioning Services can acknowledge issues before they become too serious—eliminating extra costs to you. 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.
