Progressive AirWilliam Rogers-Presidents Award 2014Every Floridian is thankful when the summer air begins to cool, windows can be opened, and the air conditioner can relax for a few months. Temperatures may no longer be nearing boiling points, but this does not mean the air conditioner can take a vacation. Without proper care, next summer could start with a lot of hot air and a lot less money when the air conditioner needs repair or replacement. That is why Progressive Air Systems takes pride in the services offered and helps local residents maintain the health of their AC units.

Founded by Bill Rogers, Progressive Air Systems has been family owned and operated since 1985. The business is not a franchise, and prides itself on the ability to service Pasco, Hernando, Hillsborough, Polk, Manatee and Sarasota counties. The company has over 50 employees who help with service, repair and all aspects of keeping homes cool during the hot summer months.

Preventative maintenance is one of the key goals for the business, and starts at $59.95. Other services include new system change outs, repair, energy ratings and new home orientation. The company also offers free home estimates for new system change outs so customers can get the best deal and keep electric bills manageable. And when the air stops blowing cool, Progressive Air Systems is there to help.

“We are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. We always have service techs on call, even on holidays,” said Office Manager ProgressiveAirLogoand Social Media Coordinator for the Riverview location Chantel Sharp, which contributes to the business winning the Carrier President’s award this past July for outstanding service.

Progressive Air Systems has two locations: 6566 Krycul Dr., in Riverview and 5907 Dasher Ct. in Port Richey. A representative can be reached any time at 855-847-3898. Its Website, www.progressiveairsystems.com, also keeps customers updated on deals, tips for AC maintenance, and provides information on the company such as services offered and other contact methods.

Even though summer is over, keeping the air conditioner happy will make for a smooth transition into next summer.

“Time to get ready for the season change. Always remember to change your filter monthly,” said Sharp.

Though the weather is cooling, it is never too early to prepare for the next heat wave.
