It may seem too early to have air conditioning on the brain, especially here in Minnesota, but it’s not! Spring is just around the corner. We haven’t lost all hope that this snow will melt soon, and neither should you. Before you begin daydreaming about drinking on patios and sunbathing at the lake, it’s time to start thinking about air conditioning. Whether you need an AC tune-up or an AC replacement, Stafford Home Service is here to ensure you’re prepared for the first hot day of the year.
Prepare for that first 80-degree day by planning an air conditioning tune-up. Scheduling preventative maintenance before the start of the cooling season will prevent expensive, unexpected repairs. It will also increase efficiency, which will save energy and money in the long run. An air conditioning tune-up will also improve your home’s indoor air quality and provide pristine comfort within your home during those thick, muggy Minnesota summers. Regular tune-ups will also extend the life of your HVAC system.
