If the thought of servicing your air conditioner by yourself has come up, you aren’t the only one. 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 complicated than you might think. Even if DIY isn’t your thing, you might be thinking about skipping your annual appointment to save some cash. That isn’t a great idea either. Sure, your unit worked perfectly last year, but that doesn’t mean it will continue that way forever.

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 right 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 a professional gets from certified institutions. Once they’ve completed their training and education, our technicians at Ameri-Tec are experts in everything related to heating and air conditioning. It’s much easier to trust their work now rather than having to make an emergency AC repair after some well-intentioned DIY work.
  • Technician tune-ups are more comprehensive: A qualified technician will understand everything that needs to be addressed during a routine maintenance appointment. They’ll check your thermostat settings, refrigerant level, electrical and moving components and your system controls. They are also able to recognize any symptoms of potential 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 system could cause serious damage that ends with expensive repairs or even replacement. The experts at Ameri-Tec 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.
