‘You’re Hot then You’re Cold’ - An Ode to your AC Unit

You totally sang that Katy Perry song title, didn’t you? It’s okay, you were supposed to. Here’s our rendition of the song. We wrote it to all of the sad, broken, or poorly maintained air conditioning units out there. 

Can you sing it? 

‘Cause you’re hot then you’re cold
You’re air doesn’t flow
You’re in then you’re out
The bill’s up and not down
You’re wrong when it’s right
I just can’t wait till the cool of night
We fight, we break up
You turn on, we make up. 
You don’t really wanna stay on, no
But you don’t really cool our home, oh
You’re hot then you’re cold
You’re air doesn’t flow
You’re in then you’re out
The bill’s up and not down.’

Does this song sound like your AC unit? Did you visualize singing to it while sweat uncomfortably poured down your face? If this parody resinated with you, it’s time to better maintain your AC unit, maybe even replace it completely. In this blog post we’ll highlight 3 ways you can maintain your AC unit this spring.  

Schedule a spring cleaning & safety check: Right now we’re offering a $135 cleaning a safety check on your air conditioning unit, and we’re even throwing in 6 month’s a filters for free. This solution ensures a professional opinion and perspective, so you can rest assured that your AC unit is set for the summer.

Consider an upgrade: Many times when an AC unit isn’t working properly it’s because it’s time for an upgrade. Remember, if the unit is older than you, it’s likely time to upgrade. By refreshing your home’s AC unit, you’ll not only likely save money, but you’ll also provide a more consistent and comfortable temperature throughout the home. 

Test your ductwork: When an home is not cooling to it’s full potential, often times it’s the ductwork and not the AC unit that is the problem. By testing your ductwork for leaks, you can maximize the efficiency and consistency of your AC’s air flow and temperature. This also ensure that your AC unit is not overworking itself to cool the home.
