If you’ve considered saving money by performing your own HVAC maintenance, you’re not alone. 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 DIY isn’t your thing, you might be thinking about not scheduling your service appointment to reduce costs. That could be another costly mistake. Sure, your unit worked perfectly last year, but who’s to say it will last.

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 appropriate 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 an expert gets from certified institutions. After going through their training, our technicians at Ilten's Incorporated are experts in everything related to heating and air conditioning. It’s much easier to trust their work now than having to make costly repairs after.
  • Technician tune ups are more thorough: A qualified technician will understand everything that needs to be addressed during a routine maintenance appointment. They’ll review your thermostat settings, refrigerant level, electrical and moving components and your system controls. While they’re checking your system, they’ll be on the look out for indications of more serious issues.
  • 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 experts at Ilten's Incorporated can acknowledge 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 Incorporated will make sure your system is working appropriately.
