Tips for Saving Money on Air Conditioning Bills

April 16th, 2018

air-conditioning-repairSummer starts early in Florida, and every year, the temperatures seem to climb just a little higher. Our air conditioning systems are going to need to run all day every day in most cases. Do otherwise, and your home could turn into an oven in a matter of hours.

In order to understand why that’s a problem, you need to understand how air conditioning refrigerant works to keep your home cool. Continue Reading
