In the present era of technology, it is easy to take many things for granted. Cell phones, cars, computers, tv, the internet. All of these things are part of life today and we do not think twice about not having them. For many of our grandparents and parents, these fancy upgrades came about during their life so while it is nice to have them, they could take them or leave them. I know my grandparents wanted no part of many of the technological upgrades they saw during their lifetime.
One thing they did embrace and would not go without was their air conditioning. While it might seem like nonsense today to think of air conditioning as a technological advancement, thats just what it was. in fact, about 10% of homes in Illinois still do not have central air. For those that do, the hot and humid days and nights of summer are a lot more bearable. Maybe its just me but I would rather be comfortable than stick to my furniture.

Here’s what you can expect during an AC check:
