When the outdoor temps is in the 60’s and 70’s it is the perfect time to get the A/c clean and maintained. Watch the weather forecast and plan accordingly before the 80’s …

Air Conditioning Maintenance

Air Conditioning Maintenance. It’s funny how every year we send out post card  and online reminders concerning the importance of air conditioning maintenance.  Many consumers/homeowners ignore these reminders. 80% of the homeowners that ignore our reminders end up spending more money on air conditioning repairs or a new air conditioner (due to lack of maintenance). The customers of ours that heed our reminders very seldom have breakdowns of their HVAC systems.  Sure that rule doesn’t always apply, especially if furnace filters aren’t changed regularly. Besides mechanical equipment does tend to break from time to time even with heating and air conditioning maintenance. But the odds decrease ten fold in your favor.

Yes it does, however air …
