Use the steps below to prepare your AC and get ready to chill all summer long.
Do you remember the last time you cleaned your air conditioner? Keeping your air conditioner clean is vital to the comfort and indoor air quality of your home. Allergens, bacteria, or viruses can get find their way into a system that is not properly cleaned. When this happens, these particles and germs can be challenging to remove.
