Change you filter We have all heard we need to change our air conditioners filter regularly. Dirty filters can cause higher electric bills for air conditioners. Even worse dirty filters can cause loss of airflow creating ice on the evaporator coil.This causes liquid Freon to return to the compressor, this can cause compressor failure which is very expensive !

Blocked ducts will prevent air conditioning from reaching all rooms in your home or office. Are the registers open? Make sure your air conditioners register is open before you call TJE Mechanical.
