Professional AC Maintenance

Why You Need a Professional to Conduct AC Maintenance

If you’ve ever considered doing your own air conditioner maintenance to save money, it’s not as uncommon as you might think. While it’s tempting, trying to tune up your own air conditioner provides the potential for bigger expenses and errors. Your machine is more intricate than many people realize. Even if you aren’t a handyman, you might be thinking about not scheduling your service appointment to reduce costs. That could be another costly mistake. Sure, your unit worked perfectly last year, but that doesn’t mean it will continue that way forever.

Whether you’re contemplating 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 necessary training: While you can learn a lot about your home’s system through your owner’s guide and the internet, you probably can’t beat the education a technician gets from certified institutions. Following their education, our technicians at Street Heating and Cooling are experts in everything related to heating and air conditioning. It’s much easier to trust their work now than having to make an emergency AC repair after some well-intentioned DIY work.
  • Technician tune ups are more thorough: A qualified technician will understand everything that needs to be addressed during a routine maintenance appointment. They’ll review 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.
  • 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 , resulting in more expensive repairs or even replacement. The professionals at Street Heating and Cooling can recognize 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. Street Heating and Cooling is here to help ensure your air conditioner is running as it should.
