Annual HVAC maintenance is necessary for your home’s air conditioner system to run right and efficiently. Keeping your AC regularly maintained will ensure that it does not break down unexpectedly on the hottest night of the year, that it will be performing at peak performance, and that it will use significantly less energy as a result.

As we like to say, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Here are five of the benefits of scheduling annual HVAC maintenance from Dufrene’s Heating & Cooling for your AC unit in the spring.
