Professional AC Maintenance

Why You Need a Professional to Conduct AC Maintenance

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 HVAC system is more complex than it may appear. Even if you aren’t a handyman, you might be thinking about skipping your annual appointment to save some cash. That could be another costly mistake. You may not have experienced any issues over the recent months, 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 right training: Although we have an abundance of information and helpful tips with the internet, it won’t provide the education a professional gets from certified institutions. After going through their training, our technicians at Contra Costa Heating & AC are experts in whatever your HVAC system needs. 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 comprehensive: The professionals will take a look at all of the different components during the appointment. They’ll assess 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: A professional will have an easier time looking for any potential issues. Continuing to run your unit could cause serious damage that ends with expensive repairs or even replacement. The professionals at Contra Costa Heating & AC can acknowledge 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. Contra Costa Heating & AC is here to help ensure your air conditioner is running as it should. Give us a call at 510-343-9841 to arrange an appointment with us. You can rest easy knowing it’s been professionally maintained and ready to keep you cool.
