There’s rarely a happy medium for us Ohioans, but fortunately we have ways to combat the blazing summer heat. BTU Comfort Solutions, located in Parma, Ohio, is the company to call when you are having issues with your home cooling system. In the 80+ degree we’ve been experiencing lately, now is not the time to be waiting around for air conditioner repair and maintenance. If you live in the Cleveland, Ohio; Parma, Ohio; or Cuyahoga County, Ohio area and are in need of a reliable heating and cooling company, BTU Comfort Solutions is the business to call.
