While we are not in any way suggesting that anyone try and do risky or dangerous work that the professionals should be doing, you want to make sure you are not spending a small fortune on a service man to come in and do something small that you could have easily handled yourself but did not know how to. Honestly in those cases you should know when to go for a professional and when to just try and do things yourself. So you should avoid fixes that require electric work or adding in coolant, but there are other things you can do. In this article we will be discussing some professional vs DIY aircon servicing techniques that you can do fairly easily when faced with a problem.
So if your problem is that you have run out of cool air or that your air conditioner is not working at the same efficiency that it used to or that others are running on, then you might want to take a closer look at some of the things. Many people do not realise that their air conditioner is not running at optimum settings. You should tinker around a bit with fan speeds, temperature control, and air conditioner modes. You will find that a lot of people just have the wrong mode on in some of the newer more modern air conditioners and do not notice it even while the ac is on.
Another major issue for incorrect functionality is the cleanliness factor. You do not need a professional to come in just to clean up the ac for you. Just open up the grill or top layer and take out the filter and give it a light wash. This will suddenly improve the air conditioners performance.
