Dirt and debris could cause problems for those with allergies and asthma, but it can also interfere with the function of your AC system.

May 1st, 2017

AC-condenser-unit-fanWhen you are purchasing a new air conditioner, the cost of installation may seem like one of the biggest factors in your decision.

Why Is My Air Conditioner Tripping the Circuit Breaker?

February 20th, 2017

AC-unit-flowersIn our previous blog, we discussed some options to try if your air conditioner is not working properly. The circuit breaker is something you can and should try if the AC unit shuts off completely, or will not start up at all.
