Air conditioner maintenance in Plano, TX is not optional, or at least it shouldn’t be. Optional things, like highlighted car rims or refurbished countertops, don’t take a very high priority in your life when it comes to saving money and keeping you happy. Perhaps you’d like to renovate your kitchen, but you probably feel safe and secure with it in its current state.

However, AC maintenance (contrary to what many homeowners believe) is absolutely necessary when trying to maximize the lifespan, efficiency, and effectiveness of your system. If you go without a professional technician with the right experience and equipment inspecting your AC system , you’re inviting a slew of problems that could eventually cause your AC to breakdown when you least expect it.

From thermostat calibration, to oiling motors, to measuring the airflow, you’re missing out on an extensive benefit from being the owner of an air conditioner if you haven’t signed up for a maintenance plan. We can tell you why!

What the R-22 Phaseout Means for You

Monday, September 16th, 2019

As of January 1, 2020, the production and importation of R-22 (Freon) refrigerant will be phased out.

This can be troubling because if you experience a refrigerant leak in the coming years, the price of refrigerant will have skyrocketed due to limited demands.

So, what can you do to ensure that you’re prepared for the R-22 phaseout if you’re unsure about your air conditioner? That’s what we’re here for. While we do provide air conditioning repair in Plano, TX, we also perform free Freon tests to determine if your system is still using it.

What happens if we determine that you’re still using Freon? Keep reading and we’ll fill you in.
