Cubby will help you stay cool this summer!

Are you looking forward to this summer as much as we are after this past year? There’s so much to look forward to: cookouts with family and friends, days at the beach, going to a game at Fenway, and relaxing at home.

Now is the time to ensure that your home’s central air conditioning or ductless mini-splits are up to the job of keeping your greater Boston home cool and comfortable by getting an annual air conditioning tune-up from Cubby! A tune-up is especially important this year because the summer is forecast to be hotter than normal, meaning your air conditioning will be working longer and harder.

The Benefits Of An Air Conditioning Tune-up

An annual tune-up is good for your air conditioning system, as well as your comfort and your wallet.

Cubby’s certified, experienced service technicians thoroughly inspect your air conditioning while performing the tune-up. If they discover problems, they can fix them before those problems become worse and lead to inefficiency, breakdowns, repair bills, or replacement costs.

A tune-up helps your air conditioning run at its peak efficiency, which keeps your energy costs as low as possible Annual preventative maintenance may also help keep your air conditioning’s warranty valid.

With regular professional maintenance from Cubby, you extend the life expectancy of your air conditioning and help to prevent breakdowns. Both of those can save you some big money. The national average cost of repairs for a central air conditioning system is $374, while the national average cost of replacing a central air conditioning system is $5,644.
