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 attractive, trying to tune up your own air conditioner could end up costing more money if you make a mistake. Your air conditioner is more intricate than many people realize. Even if you don’t know the first thing about air conditioners, you might be thinking about skipping your annual appointment to save some cash. That could be another costly mistake. Sure, your unit worked perfectly last year, but who’s to say it will last.

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 necessary training: Although we have an abundance of information and helpful tips with the internet, it’s not going to have the same impact as the education a technician gets from certified institutions. Once they’ve completed their training and education, our technicians at Gillman Heating and Air are experts in all things HVAC. It’s smarter to have the work done correctly rather than having to make an emergency AC repair after some well-intentioned DIY work.
  • Technician tune ups are more comprehensive: 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. They are also able to recognize any symptoms of potential issues.
  • Professional tune ups can save you money: 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 professionals at Gillman Heating and Air can acknowledge issues before they become too serious—eliminating extra costs to you. And a properly maintained system will run more efficiently, helping your energy bills.

But don’t worry, you still have time to have a professional come out for your annual maintenance. Gillman Heating and Air is here to make sure your equipment continues to work as efficiently as possible. Give us a call at 478-202-3076 to arrange an appointment with us. You can rest easy knowing it’s been professionally maintained and ready to keep you cool.
