If you’ve considered saving money by performing your own HVAC maintenance, 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 complicated than you might think. Even if you aren’t a handyman, you might be thinking about skipping your annual appointment to save some cash. That could also lead to more expensive results. Sure, your unit worked perfectly last year, but things change.
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 necessary training: As the internet has given us access to a lot of information and guidance, you probably can’t beat the education a professional gets from certified institutions. Following their education, our technicians at Woody's Sudden Service are experts in whatever your HVAC system needs. It’s smarter to have the work done correctly rather than having to make costly repairs after.
- 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 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.
- 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 system could cause serious damage that means you’ll need a costly repair or replacement down the road. One of the experts from Woody's Sudden Service can identify issues before they become too serious—eliminating extra costs to you. And a properly maintained system will run more efficiently, helping your energy bills.
There’s still time to schedule your annual maintenance appointment. Woody's Sudden Service will make sure your system is working appropriately. Give us a call at 703-278-2036 to arrange an appointment with us. You can rest easy knowing it’s been professionally maintained and ready to keep you cool.
