“I’ve been contracted for maintenance with this company for about 3 years, they’re great! The girls in the office are always sweet, accommodating with the schedule and easy to get in contact with. Their service technicians are all nice, patient, knowledgeable and on time! The last technichians that came to my house were Emilio and David, they allowed me to follow them around and answered all of my questions thoroughly. As a single mom, having strangers in my home is nerve-wracking, but I’ve been comfortable with the employees of this company and have no plans to terminate my contract with them.”
What Will Technicians Do During a Maintenance Appointment?
Our licensed technicians will confirm that all components of your air conditioning system work properly. The technician will conduct the following procedures:
- Balance the thermostat and humidistat to ensure accurate indoor temperatures.

What Can I Do to Extend My AC Unit’s Lifespan?
To work properly, the area around the outside unit of your air conditioning system needs to have adequate air flow. Remove any shrubs or debris that may impede air flow. Keep trees and bushes trimmed, and don’t store garden equipment near the unit. Inside your home, don’t ever close the air vents completely. To limit cooling in a specific area, close vents partially instead.
