We’ve been dealing with hot and humid weather for the last few weeks, long before the rest of the country has started to thaw out.

It can be especially frustrating to have your heater or air conditioner malfunction when you need it the most.

Summer may be winding down, but you’re very likely still using your air conditioning system on a regular basis.
