WHEN IT’S TIME TO INSTALL A NEW AIR CONDITIONER, GO WITH THE PROS FROM TOM’S HEATING
During the hot summer months, a large portion of your energy bill is a result of powering your air conditioner. As your air conditioning system gets older, it becomes less efficient and may not cool your home as well or as quickly as it used to.
