If the thought of servicing your air conditioner by yourself has come up, you’re not alone. While it’s appealing, 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 don’t know the first thing about air conditioners, you might be thinking about postponing your yearly appointment to avoid the extra cost. That could be another costly mistake. Sure, your unit worked perfectly last year, but who’s to say it will last.
