Getting your AC ready for summer

Westmoreland's keeps you cool all year round!

Westmoreland’s keeps you cool all year round!

It’s hard not to gloat when your family up north is shoveling snow as you’re heading to the beach in early March.  After what seems like an eternal winter (that lasted an unprecedented two months long this year), Florida is more than ready to pull out the sunscreen and flip flops.

Before you switch that thermostat setting from “Heat” to “Cool”, there are a few things you can do to help keep your AC unit running all summer long.

Before You Call



It’s 3:00 pm on Friday afternoon, and you have 45 people due to arrive at your house in four hours for a graduation party.  You’re busy getting ready when you realize that the house is getting warm.  A few anxious moments later, you come to the conclusion that it’s not warm, it is downright hot.  You check the thermostat, hoping that somehow it accidentally got turned off.

No such luck.

Before you pull out your cell phone and call Westmoreland’s, there are a few things you should check first.
