Spring is nearly here in California. Not only should homeowners begin thinking about annual spring cleaning, they should also consider going through a home maintenance checklist to make sure your home is in good order and ready for the summer.
Service the AC Unit
Have a qualified heating and cooling contractor clean and service the outside unit of the air conditioning system. A & P offers a great maintenance plan for homeowners who want to keep their units running smoothly and efficiently. Clean coils operate more efficiently, and an annual service call will keep the system working at peak performance levels. Change interior filters on a regular basis.
