Having AC troubles? Don’t suffer the heat for long! We are often called to fix an AC that is running continuously even when it has reached the desired temperature, or when the weather is cooler. Though the problem is not uncommon, you have reason to be concerned. In addition to the unnecessary wear on the unit, you are also likely to receive a high electricity bill.
