Summer is still a few months away, though mid-2015 is almost upon us. For Shreveport residents, mid-year can only mean one thing: skyrocketing temperatures. While the heat wave is fairly distant as of now, today would be a good time to have your air conditioner seen to by local Shreveport air conditioning technicians before the heat wave hits.

Dirty air filter – An A/C unit’s air filter acts as a safety net to protect the appliance’s innards from dirt and pollutants.
