If the thought of servicing your air conditioner by yourself has come up, you’re not alone. While it’s attractive, 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 you aren’t a handyman, you might be thinking about postponing your yearly appointment to avoid the extra cost. That could be another costly mistake. Sure, your unit worked perfectly last year, but things change.

Whether you’re considering 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 appropriate training: As the internet has given us access to a lot of information and guidance, it won’t provide the education a professional gets from certified institutions. Following their education, our technicians at Total Assurance AC & Heating are experts in all things HVAC. 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 in-depth: A qualified technician will understand everything that needs to be addressed during a routine maintenance appointment. They’ll assess 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: You might not be able to recognize the early signs of a problem with your air conditioning. Continuing to run your air conditioner could cause serious damage , resulting in more expensive repairs or even replacement. The experts at Total Assurance AC & Heating can acknowledge issues before they become too serious—saving you money in the end. In addition, maintenance on your system helps it run more efficiently, saving you even more.

But don’t worry, you still have time to have a professional come out for your annual maintenance. Total Assurance AC & Heating is here to make sure your equipment continues to work as efficiently as possible. Contact us at 361-217-7080 to schedule an appointment with us.
