Many home owners believe if their A/C unit turns on and blows cool air through the vents, life is good. Well, maybe it is, but wouldn’t you like to be sure?

A central air conditioning system is like any other mechanical unit in that it needs regular servicing and maintenance. It doesn’t matter if your unit is one year old or twenty, yearly maintenance can increase the efficiency and life expectancy. Did you know that an air conditioner that is only one pound low on Freon can actually cost you 15 to 20 percent on your cooling bill. It may be cooling your home but it is costing you more to do it. A regular, yearly clean and check can make sure your system is operating efficiently and within the manufacturers specifications.

Right now is the best time to have you’re A/C serviced. The outside temperature is high enough to allow operation of the system without fear of damage and the mad rush has not yet begun. Waiting until the temperature is unbearable can cause a delay in response time due to a higher volume of service calls. Don’t wait!

Changing your furnace filter is an important part of HVAC maintenance. Insufficient air flow across the coils while the A/C is running can cause ice build up on the coils or on the lines which can cause damage to the compressor. We recommend monthly furnace filter changes if you are using the standard 1” thick paper filters. This is an inexpensive method to reduce the chances of a system failure.
