Keep Your Air Conditioner From Freezing This Summer | Hartman Bros.No, a frozen air conditioner won’t make your home even cooler this summer. In fact, ice formation on the A/C indoor evaporator coil will cause cooling performance to decline steadily and rapidly. It may eventually damage expensive components like the compressor and even cause water damage inside the house (when the system shuts down and all that ice melts).

What Should an HVAC Pro Check During Regular A/C Maintenance?When's the last time you scheduled a preventive maintenance tune-up for your home's central air conditioning system? If you can't remember, or it's been more than a year, you should schedule an A/C maintenance visit as soon as possible. Your system has likely lost efficiency and may be under-performing, while small problems that haven't been addressed may be developing into larger ones. Most HVAC experts recommend annual service on your central A/C and semi-annual service for heat pumps.

A Maintenance Agreement Gives You an Edge on Comfort, Extending Your Equipment's LifeHaving a maintenance agreement with a dependable contractor keeps your A/C working in the best possible condition with optimum efficiency. Scheduled maintenance also can identify small problems before they become large and expensive. In particular, regular inspections of your A/C can spot a potential problem that may still be under warranty before the warranty expires, saving you costly repairs. In extreme weather changes, such as a heat wave or unexpected cold snap, contractors receive many calls for services. You can stay ahead of the game with a maintenance agreement.

"We reached out to Hartman Brothers as our previous place was actually rude and acted like didnt care as we had an issue with the AC. Our systems at that point were about 14 years old. We got a quote from previous place and i about fell off my chair. Called Hartman Brothers and asked if they could provide a quote for us on both and in AC alone. Super impressed as Rick came out next morning. Looked at what we currently had and that same day had a complete quote to us. We were scheduled for May 26 install however they had a cancellation and came out May 17. Both techs were super amazing. Talked with us with everything and answered all of our questions. They came out a little before 8am and everything was installed and working by 2pm. Cleaned up their stuff ( which was great as we have 3 dogs). Never have we experienced this type of professionalism from any company. We are all so pleased with Hartman Brothers including Vicki in the office. She was great helping me and explaining the maintenance agreement. If you ever need a great team you wont be disappointed with Hartman Brothers ! We thank you all for helping us and doing a great job. It was also great we kept it local as well. Glad to be a part of the Hartman Brothers family now ! Thank you again."
