Service To ensure your air conditioner is running at peak efficiency all summer, have an air conditioner service completed on your system right before spring begins. Having air conditioner service done not only helps raise your system’s efficiency but by checking and changing your filters, can combat seasonal allergies by eliminating dust and dirt built up in your system, which can circulate throughout your house. This buildup can cause respiratory discomfort and illnesses while also negatively impacting your system’s efficiency.
