Drivers coming and going to work in Lubbock had reason to smile on April 1, thanks in part to the employees of Armstrong Mechanical who were in front of the Texas Road House Restaurant greeting motorists as they passed by. They were dressed in giant smiles, waving hands and generating a Happy “April Cools Day” to motorists as they drove by.

It was all in fun and an attempt to put a smile on the faces of the back-to-work crowd along with an effort to make consumers aware of proper care of cooling equipment.  Armstrong Mechanical has designated April 1 as “April Cools Day.”

“Cooling and heating equipment use more energy than any other appliance,” said Chris Carpenter, president of Armstrong Mechanical. “This inevitably shows up every month on the energy bill, but it’s important to remember that energy costs can be controlled.

“One step to control energy costs is to schedule annual maintenance checks to make sure your unit is running efficiently. Most cooling systems require very little owner maintenance. However, operating dirty cooling equipment can result in an unnecessary loss of efficiency and can damage the equipment.”
