“But when fall comes, kicking summer out on its treacherous ass as it always does one day after the midpoint of September, it stays awhile like an old friend you have missed. It settles in the way an old friend will settle into your favorite chair and take out his pipe and light it then fill the afternoon with stories of places he has been and things he has done since last he saw you.” – Stephen King, Salem’s Lot
Friends, I’m not sure where the good Mr. King was when he penned this quote however I am guessing it wasn’t here in sunny South Florida. One of the things I miss the most about being up north is the change of seasons. We just have a stunning lack of seasons here. Yes, the calendar may change, the days get shorter and the temperatures drop a little, we however do not experience a true autumn season.
The change of dates reminds me of a few things as September begins, Christmas will be here soon, the snow birds are coming, traffic is going to get a lot worse and it’s time to get the AC system serviced after a long hard summer!
Okay, I’m guessing you thought about the first three things on the above list and probably not so much the last. Your air conditioning system has been working it’s hardest over the last three or four months and it is time to give it a little love and affection. Seriously. Your AC has kept you cool and sweat free for all this time, doesn’t it deserve a little love?
I have discussed this in the past and as a reminder, properly maintaining your air conditioner will not only give you the longest life from the equipment, it will help keep your electric bills lower and hopefully prevent unexpected breakdowns and repairs. So, what goes into an air conditioner maintenance and tune up you ask? Let’s take a look…
Our friendly neighborhood AC maintenance tech is going to perform the following tasks.
There my friend is an air conditioning maintenance check in a nut shell. As I have said in the past, you change the oil in your car every few thousand miles and you get a physical from your doctor annually. Remember, your air conditioner deserves the same attention to give you its best performance and longest life.
Until next time my faithful readers, please remember that two wrongs don’t make a right, they do however make a good excuse.
