If you’ve considered saving money by performing your own HVAC maintenance, you’re not alone. While it’s tempting, trying to tune up your own air conditioner could end up costing more money if you make a mistake. Your air conditioner is more intricate than many people realize. Even if DIY isn’t your thing, you might be thinking about skipping your annual appointment to save some cash. That could be another costly mistake. Maybe you haven’t had any challenges with your system recently, but that doesn’t mean it will continue that way forever.

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 right training: While you can learn a lot about your home’s system through your owner’s guide and the internet, it’s not going to have the same impact as the education an expert gets from certified institutions. Once they’ve completed their training and education, our technicians at Bishop’s HVAC are experts in everything related to heating and air conditioning. 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 thorough: 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: It’s not always easy for homeowners to understand indications of a potential problem. Continuing to run your air conditioner could cause serious damage that means you’ll need a costly repair or replacement down the road. The experts at Bishop’s HVAC 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.
