Ah, beautiful spring. You’re ready to clean the grill, plant the flowers and bring out the lawn chairs. You’re ready for the warm weather ahead, but is your air conditioner?
“The most important thing to remember is that your air conditioning unit has sat outside all winter long” says June Kasidonis, owner with husband Steve of Kasidonis Heating & Cooling in Brunswick, “If your Freon level is low, even by one pound, it can cause damage and other problems to your air conditioner and can cost you more to run. We strongly recommend a clean and tune before you start it up or shortly after.”
Besides low Freon, any number of problems could be found in the unit — animals may have built nests in it, leaves could be clogging it, spiders could be in the contactor. “A check-up now will allow your air conditioner to run as efficiently as possible this summer and will extend the life of the unit,” says June, “A good percentage of our service calls stem from something that could have been typically caught earlier during a clean and tune.”
“If you have a unit that has a leak that you recharge every year, you may want to consider a replacement with a new efficient air conditioning unit because the cost of R-22 Freon is going up significantly,” says Steve, “The new units use A410A Freon, a cleaner, more efficient and much less expensive Freon.”
Before you purchase a new air conditioner from Kasidonis, one of the company’s professional comfort specialists will visit your home to review your needs, go over your options and discuss price ranges. “They will work with your budget to come up with the right solution for your home,” says June.
Kasidonis carries top name brands Trane and Carrier. “We also offer a wide variety of indoor air quality products to fight indoor air pollutants such as dust mites, pet allergies and common germs,” Steve says, “One of the newer products is the Air Scrubber. The unit usually sells for more than $1,250. Our special introductory price for the Air Scrubber is $890.”
Kasidonis offers financing options for anything from a service call to a new system with 0% or low interest payments up to 60 months.
“We don’t want our customers to be uncomfortable for very long,” says June, “that’s why Kasidonis offers emergency service 24/7. We charge the same low hourly rate no matter when you need service, with no overtime or travel charges ever. We answer our phones when you need us the most. If we can’t fix the system, we loan our customers at absolutely no charge portable air conditioners or heating units so they’re comfortable until we get the new unit installed if it’s not same day.”
Celebrating 21 years of business, Kasidonis offers heating, cooling and plumbing services. “We are licensed, bonded and we pull all permits. That’s the kind of company you want to do business with because that way you have a valid warranty and peace of mind when you need service the most.

We’ve consciously built a business that is reputable and dependable, we’re a part of the community and a business where friends refer friends.”
