The Importance of Annual Maintenance
Maintenance tune-ups are something that every air conditioning system needs to have done annually. If you have a year-round heat pump, it should actually be done twice a year. It matters more that you have maintenance done on a regular basis than it does what time of the year you have it done. Why, you ask?
- Summer Doesn’t Take Breaks: Our summers may be mild compared to many parts of the country, and we may be well known for our chilly temperatures in the winter, but heat happens. Maintenance helps ensure that your AC system is always ready to deal with warmer temps, no matter how long they last or when they strike.
