Spring is in the air, which has many Rhode Island homeowners taking a moment to clean up around the house now that the winter weather is gone. While tasks such as cleaning baseboards and vacuuming corners often come to mind, one of the most important places to look when getting ready for the warmer months is your air conditioner. Air conditioner maintenance plays a major role in home performance, and ignoring it year after year will lead to nothing but problems in the long run.
