If you’ve ever considered doing your own air conditioner maintenance to save money, you’re not alone. While it’s tempting, trying to tune up your own air conditioner provides the potential for bigger expenses and errors. Your machine is more complicated than you might think. Even if you don’t know the first thing about air conditioners, you might be thinking about not scheduling your service appointment to reduce costs. That isn’t a great idea either. You may not have experienced any issues over the recent months, but that doesn’t mean it will continue that way forever.

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 right training: Although we have an abundance of information and helpful tips with the internet, it won’t provide the education an expert gets from certified institutions. Following their education, our technicians at WM J Kraus & Son are experts in all things HVAC. 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 comprehensive: 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. 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 unit could cause serious damage that means you’ll need a costly repair or replacement down the road. The professionals at WM J Kraus & Son can recognize issues before they become too serious—eliminating extra costs to you. Proper maintenance keeps your system running efficiently and helps keep those utility bills lower.

But don’t worry, you still have time to have a professional come out for your annual maintenance. WM J Kraus & Son is here to make sure your equipment continues to work as efficiently as possible.
