Summer is here
Your air conditioner is the hardest working appliance during the summer months. It runs longer during the day to cool off those hot summer days!
Don’t forget to schedule preventative maintenance to keep it operating efficiently. If it hasn’t been serviced since last summer (or longer) —you may find yourself in a very uncomfortable situation when the temperature rises.
