The Importance of Professional Air Conditioner Maintenance

September 12, 2018

If you’ve ever considered doing your own air conditioner maintenance to save money, you aren’t the only one. While it’s tempting, trying to tune up your own air conditioner could end up costing more money if you make a mistake. Your machine is more complicated than you might think. Even if you aren’t a handyman, you might be thinking about skipping your annual appointment to save some cash. That could be another costly mistake. Sure, your unit worked perfectly last year, but who’s to say it will last.

Whether you’re thinking of 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, you probably can’t beat the education a technician gets from certified institutions. Following their education, our technicians at Connolly Electric & Mechanical are experts in whatever your HVAC system needs. It’s going to save time by doing it right the first time than having to make an emergency AC repair after some well-intentioned DIY work.
  • 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: You might not be able to recognize the early signs of a problem with your air conditioning. Continuing to run your unit could cause serious damage that ends with expensive repairs or even replacement. One of the experts from Connolly Electric & Mechanical can recognize issues before they become too serious—eliminating extra costs to you. And a properly maintained system will run more efficiently, helping your energy bills.
