This time of year in Fort Myers it is entirely possible that you will require your air conditioner to cool your home during the day, and heat your home throughout the night. Over the course of the summer we have all become somewhat acclimated to the hot summer weather! Now that the evenings are turning cooler it may take some time to get used to the colder temperatures. And if a genuine “cold snap” hits we may be in for a long week or so of near freezing temperatures!
Not A Good Time To Discover You Have A Heating Problem!!!

The best way to avoid this scenario is to be proactive now and get your a/c and heater inspected NOW to insure proper operation when you need it most! Your air conditioner worked long and hard over the summer keeping your home comfortable … and really should be inspected now (or at least before Spring) to ensure …
Optimal comfort levels
Minimal wear to equipment
Energy efficient electrical usage
Just as a clean freshly serviced a/c is important to your comfort during the summer … it is equally important this time of year!
