A Personal Experience on the Importance of Summer Maintenance

With summer fast approaching, you’ll soon have the kids running around, backyard barbecues, fourth of July parties, neighborhood yard sales and the annual pilgrimage to the shore. The last thing you should have to worry about is a problem with your air conditioning system. Nothing makes you sweat more than having a house full of guests when it is warmer inside than out!

To minimize the potential for system failure, RSC Heating & Air Conditioning recommends having your air conditioning system cleaned and inspected yearly. A properly maintained system will not only reduce your electric bill, it will extend the life of your system and keep your home cool all summer long.

A personal story: Last month, my family and I went to the Outer Banks for a week long vacation. The first thing I did when we arrived was check the cooling system, I do this for a living, after all. Not only were the air filters completely clogged, the 3rd floor system wasn’t working at all! Unfortunately, I had no tools or service parts with me, so feeling helpless, I contacted the company we rented the house from. During our week-long stay, we never received the service needed to resolve the problem!  Thankfully, we only had two very warm days without air conditioning. I’m certain this situation could have been avoided had the owner maintained the system properly. The simple task of replacing your filter on a regular basis could help you avoid an experience such as this.

It was also eye opening to experience what it’s like on the other side, as a customer in a very warm, uncomfortable home. It is our guarantee, when dealing with RSC, you’ll never have the same experience, or wait that I did! It has always been our goal to give our customers the prompt, efficient service they deserve.

We hope you give us a call this cooling season to get your air conditioning system maintained. Please call us at 717-299-3914. We look forward to meeting all of your home comfort needs.
