AC Checks

The weather is warming up and before long you will be wanting to switch in your air-conditioning units. April is the best time to give your AC a thorough going over. Replace any filters, check ducts for damage, clear the vents and simply allow air to flow. This is another no regrets maintenance task that will save you time, hassle and money later in the year when you need your AC most.

Check out your concrete

Over the winter your concrete, like the rest of your property, has taken a battering.
