Houston AC Maintenance

Annual air conditioning maintenance is the key to keeping your system running efficiently this summer and for years to come.  All brands of A/C manufacturers recommend annual maintenance on condensing units and some even require annual maintenance to keep the equipment warranty valid. In Houston, your air conditioning system is expected to work for over 2800 hours each summer. However, many people don’t realize the importance of having their A/C unit serviced each year.  Much like the way a car requires oil changes, your cooling system needs annual maintenance to perform at its best.  Maintaining your A/C system can help improve cooling efficiency, lower energy costs, improve indoor air quality, and increase your home’s comfort.
