Cooler temperatures have been providing our area with a welcome break from the heat. Our air conditioners have finally been allowed to take a break and cracking a window in many cases is enough to keep your home comfortable. But before you turn your mind fully towards the idea of preparing for cooler weather, we want to draw your attention back to your air conditioner.

Specifically, we want to ask you how well your system performed this last cooling season. If you can easily say that your AC did a great job and encountered no issues, that’s great! If, on the other hand, you struggled to stay comfortable throughout summer despite your system being well-cared for, it may mean you need to consider an air conditioner replacement in Havertown sooner than later.
