man-holding-air-filterWhen it comes to air conditioning maintenance, you may already know what to do. Once a year, give a professional a call to come in and inspect your system, make any necessary adjustments, clean the unit inside and out, and recommend repairs if needed.

Is that all that can be done, though? If you’re wondering if once a year is often enough to do any maintenance to your air conditioner, the answer is no.

There is one maintenance task in particular that homeowners can not only do on their own, but they should be doing on their own, and that’s changing the air filter in the system. But, why?

Why You Shouldn’t Tackle AC Projects Yourself

Monday, August 13th, 2018

technician working on air conditionerAs the heat gets progressively worse over the course of summer, the last thing you want is to deal with an air conditioner that can’t keep up. It can certainly be alarming when a cooling system isn’t able to cool in order for you to feel comfortable, or if the airflow doesn’t seem powerful enough. When these things occur, we understand how tempting it can be for you to try to save money by looking up how to fix the problem yourself. Or, you may choose to call “that guy down the street” who has some handyman skills.

We urge you to not go with either of these options. Rather than attempting a repair on your own—and potentially damaging your Katy, TX air conditioning system further in doing so, it’s a better idea to call trained and experienced HVAC technicians. There are a number of reasons for this, which we’ve highlighted below:
