Home Warranties
& A/C Coverage

I don’t do many “public service” announcements on this blog, but the following — courtesy of the district manager for Edina Realty’s home warranty vendor — seemed especially topical:

It’s peak A/C season and we are getting lots of A/C home warranty claims – guess what the main reason for denial of coverage is? Lack of maintenance.

To keep your air conditioner maintained, on an annual basis you need to hose out the filter on the outside unit (gets rid of pollen and other build-up). If you don’t the air flow decreases, causing strain on the system, which will eventually fail. Also make sure that shrubs are not overgrowing the unit.

Good advice . . .
