“In springtime, a young man’s fancy turns to love,” wrote British poet, Alfred Lord Tennyson in the classic poem, Locksley Hall. An updated version for the Valley of the Sun reads, “In springtime – in Arizona – a young man’s fancy turns to… air conditioning.” Phoenix residents love affair with air conditioning began with the first mechanical cooling devices developed a century ago. Wise desert dwellers understand the heavenly temperatures of February and March soon give way to sizzling hot months of triple digit, unrelenting summer heat. A springtime air conditioning tune-up will prevent a summer break-up (breakdown) with your AC unit. There’s no doubt, a spring romance is enchanting but remember to love your air conditioner. Take care of it, and it will take care of you. After all, who do you really love when it’s 115 degrees in the shade?

The Heat Is On

Preparing for summer heat is an annual rite of spring in Arizona. The blistering sun and constant triple digit temperatures will push your AC unit to extremes. Most car owners accept it’s better to perform regular service on your automobile rather than wait until it breaks down. The same holds true for your complex air conditioning system – better to check now and be prepared. Once the summer season hits, HVAC repair calls increase dramatically, and it’s miserable to be in your house with no AC in the middle of summer.
