Air Conditioner Annual Maintenance by IndoorAire

One of the best ways to ensure that your AC will keep working efficiently during the summer heat is to have an annual maintenance check. Inspections pay for themselves through improved energy efficiency, which saves money on utility bills, and a longer-lasting air conditioning unit.

Replacing your air conditioner, by contrast, will cost several thousand dollars. Even small repairs can run several hundred dollars. We can often find and address small problems with A/C units through a regular inspection that, left unnoticed, could grow into larger, more expensive issues.
