It’s Never Too Late for This Important AC Service

Monday, September 9th, 2019

air-conditioner-with-tools-on-topOkay, so there is one scenario where it’s too late for this service—air conditioning maintenance, that is. If your air conditioner has completely broken down and the compressor is shot, then maintenance won’t do anything. In fact, you’ll probably have to replace the entire air conditioner.

This is essential—your air conditioning maintenance should be done on a routine basis, no matter the time of year. Sure, it’s most ideal to have maintenance done in the spring, before temperatures reach their hottest. But AC maintenance is definitely one of those areas where frequency means more than timing.
