AC maintenance

A frequent question that many homeowners ask is: what’s the best time to get my air conditioning tune up done?

Answer: The best time to get your air conditioning system tuned up is during the spring season when your AC system isn’t being used on a regular basis. By having your tune-up done before the summer hits, your air conditioning system is ready for the hottest months of the year when your system is being used the most.

FYI: Having a regular air conditioning tune up done, you can save up to 25% on your utility bill! That’s hundreds of dollars on a yearly basis.

*All air conditioning tune-ups include the following: *
• Inspecting coolant levels and pressure
• Calibrating thermostat(s) and making sure the cycle and temperature are correct
• Inspecting and tightening AC system wiring, contacts, capacitors, and relay
• Cleaning the evaporator coil
• Cleaning the condensate drain
