Chances are that you’ve neglected your spring time cleaning because the summertime heat is just not here yet. We are here to help you get started!

Spring is officially here and with that comes longer days and rising temperatures.  It may seem early, but now is the perfect time to start readying your Air Conditioning Unit for those fast approaching summer days.

Although your air conditioner may be the last thing on your mind, it’s better to check it out earlier rather than waiting until it’s too late and you’re stuck waiting a week in the heat for a repair appointment.  Not only will you thank yourself, but your wallet just might too.
