When you live in Florida, you know that summer never really ends. Sure, temperatures cool down for a bit in the winter—maybe a handful of weeks if we are lucky. But ultimately, we end up using our air conditioning systems a lot more than our heaters, if we ever use our heaters!
We’re only half-joking about that.
Those of us in the southeast need to pay special attention to our air conditioning needs, because our cooling systems accumulate wear and tear at a lot faster rate than an air conditioner in, say, upstate New York.
This means that air conditioning maintenance is vital. While any HVAC professional will tell you that the best time to have this service done is in spring, “before you need your air conditioner the most,” when you live here there’s never a bad time for a tune-up.
In fact, consistency matters much more than timing. We encourage our customers to have AC maintenance done once a year—twice a year if you have a heat pump. Read on to learn why!
