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 may result in more expenses or damage to your system. Your air conditioner 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 also lead to more expensive results. You may not have experienced any issues over the recent months, but that doesn’t mean it will continue that way forever.
