Monday, April 15th, 2019

covering-earsIf you find that your AC is making a noise that can appropriately be described as “screaming,” it’s not because it’s excited about finding the best ice cream parlor this summer. It’s probably a refrigerant leak, and it’s very serious.

So, how does a maintenance plan help overcome this? Allow us to explain.
