Monday, March 26th, 2018

High efficiency modern AC-heater unit, energy save solutionSpring is here and our cooling season has already begun. Is your central air conditioner in good shape? Will it get you through the next 6 months or so without any trouble? If it’s a newer system and you’ve had it regularly maintained—and kept up on repair needs—then you should have no problem! But if you have an aging system, and it’s been experiencing problems, then the time to look for a new system is now.

But we don’t encourage just jumping right into an AC installation in San Antonio, TX without considering all the factors that go into the cost of a system, as well as how that system will work in your home. For instance, the first thing our technicians will do when getting ready to install a new system in your home is perform a load calculation.
