Keep Your AC Filter Clean

Monday, July 8th, 2019

air-filterFor the most part, air conditioning maintenance in Colton, CA, is not a job that you can handle on your own. The process is much more complex than many homeowners seem to realize. During maintenance, electrical components and connections are tested, moving parts are inspected and lubricated as needed, and much more.
