Why Do I Need to Keep Up With Preventative Maintenance?
I always get asked, "Jessica, why do I need to put my air conditioning equipment on a maintenance contract?"
Simply put, why wouldn't you? Living in Florida means it's hot pretty much every day of the year - and your air conditioner never shuts off - just about every six months your drain line starts to get really funky - check out these pictures:
Gross, right? I know. All this sludge is why your ac unit shuts off. If the water can't drain out of your pan - the unit will not turn on. This growth only needs 3 to 6 months to block things off and ruin your whole weekend!
Routine maintenance of your Air Conditioning System is something you should not overlook.
