For many parts of the country, now is the time of year when people are just starting to think about their air conditioners—scheduling maintenance, handling any pressing repair needs, etc. For our part of the country, air conditioners are a little more at top-of-mind, being used for the majority of the year.

And when that time comes, you want to ensure you’re selecting one that works as efficiently as possible right from the get go.
