air-conditioning-serviceSummer will soon be here, and if your air conditioner is on its last legs, the time has come to seriously think about replacing it. New air conditioning installation should ideally take place before the summer starts, when you have time to plan it properly.

(There’s nothing worse than experiencing a catastrophic breakdown in the middle of a heat wave and having to scramble to install a new system when the temperature hits 100 degrees.)

You should never attempt to diagnose a problem with your air conditioner yourself, but you can spot the signs that something isn’t functioning the way it should simply by noting any differences in your system’s performance.

Monday, April 2nd, 2018

air-conditioning-maintanceSpring is officially here and summer won’t be far behind. Those hot days seem to arrive sooner and sooner every year, and if you own a home, you need your air conditioner to work for months on end in order to stay cool and comfortable.

new-air-conditioningSpring is here and summer will be along soon enough. This is the time when homeowners trade in their old outdated air conditioners for a more modern replacement.
