In our combined 40 years of service, we have found many reasons for air conditioning failure. The single biggest reason is lack of maintenance. As compared to a car that only runs while you are in the seat, an air conditioner in the Florida Keys runs 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, approximately 9 months of the year. Car owners take their cars for regular maintenance; oil changes, brakes, tune-ups, etc., but air conditioning owners generally do not give their units a second thought until they break down. We believe that with bi-annual maintenance, unit efficiency will increase while senseless breakdowns will decrease.
For a very reasonable price, our maintenance agreement provides you with regular system upkeep. We will visit your house twice a year and perform the following:
