If you’ve ever considered doing your own air conditioner maintenance to save money, 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 air conditioner is more intricate than many people realize. Even if DIY isn’t your thing, you might be thinking about not scheduling your service appointment to reduce costs. That could be another costly mistake. Maybe you haven’t had any challenges with your system recently, but things change.
Whether you’re contemplating 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: 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. Once they’ve completed their training and education, our technicians at Ilten's are experts in all things HVAC. 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: The professionals will take a look at all of the different components during the appointment. They’ll review 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.
- Professional tune-ups can save you money: It’s not always easy for homeowners to understand indications of a potential problem. Continuing to run your air conditioner could cause serious damage , resulting in more expensive repairs or even replacement. The professionals at Ilten's can recognize issues before they become too serious—reducing your expenses. In addition, maintenance on your system helps it run more efficiently, saving you even more.
There’s still time to schedule your annual maintenance appointment. Ilten's will make sure your system is working appropriately. Give us a call at 319-208-2351 to book an appointment with us. You’ll be confident knowing your system has your back.
