Why Does My Air Conditioner Need Cleaning?

air_conditioning_maintenanceOnce weather starts to get warmer, you’ll begin using your air conditioner on a more consistent basis. The fall and winter months can be especially cruel to exposed air conditioning units, leaving the air conditioner coils filled with dirt, leaves and other items that can cause your air conditioner to not function at its full potential, or not work at all. In order to stop a problem before it happens, an ongoing maintenance program to clean and check your air conditioner is the best way to stay comfortable and have your a/c unit running safely throughout the season.
