The Importance of Professional Air Conditioner Maintenance

September 12, 2018

If you’ve considered saving money by performing your own HVAC maintenance, you’re not alone. While it’s appealing, trying to tune up your own air conditioner may result in more expenses or damage to your system. Your machine is more complicated than you might think. Even if DIY isn’t your thing, you might be thinking about not scheduling your service appointment to reduce costs. That isn’t a great idea either. 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, take a look at some of the benefits with selecting a qualified technician to take a look at your system:

  • Technicians have the right training: As the internet has given us access to a lot of information and guidance, it won’t provide the education an expert gets from certified institutions. Once they’ve completed their training and education, our technicians at Hopper Heating and Air are experts in all things HVAC. It’s going to save time by doing it right the first time than having to make costly repairs after.
  • Technician tune ups are more thorough: 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. While they’re checking your system, they’ll be on the look out for indications of more serious issues.
  • You can see cost-savings after a professional tune up: 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 that ends with expensive repairs or even replacement. The experts at Hopper Heating and Air can recognize issues before they become too serious—saving you money in the end. 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. Hopper Heating and Air is here to help ensure your air conditioner is running as it should.
