If the thought of servicing your air conditioner by yourself has come up, it’s not as uncommon as you might think. While it’s appealing, trying to tune up your own air conditioner could end up costing more money if you make a mistake. Your air conditioner is more complex than it may appear. Even if DIY isn’t your thing, 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 things change.
Whether you’re considering 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: While you can learn a lot about your home’s system through your owner’s guide and the internet, it won’t provide the education a technician gets from certified institutions. Following their education, our technicians at Ilten's are experts in everything related to heating and air conditioning. It’s much easier to trust their work now rather than having to face other challenges down the road.
- Technician tune-ups are more in-depth: The professionals will take a look at all of the different components during the appointment. They’ll check 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.
- 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 unit could cause serious damage that means you’ll need a costly repair or replacement down the road. The professionals at Ilten's can identify issues before they become too serious—saving you money in the end. 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. Ilten's will make sure your system is working appropriately. Contact us at 319-208-2351 to book an appointment with us. You’ll be confident knowing your system has your back.
