Posted November 06, 2019 12:24:56 Alaskans will soon get their first air conditioning service for about $150,000 when the company that owns the Aurora air conditioning plant will close it.
The company will also begin to replace the air conditioning units that run in a lot in the air-conditioning business, with the new units.
It will not be known exactly when the Aurora and the new unit will open.
The move is part of the company’s strategy to cut costs as it tries to win back its business from the closure of the old facility in 2019.
“It’s a very significant moment for us,” said Bill Cairns, chief executive of Alaskas Pacific Air Quality District.
The Alaskis are a key market for the company, which is in the midst of a national competition for the second-largest air-quality market in the world.
Alaskans are paying about $2,300 more per person for their air conditioning than in 2016, but the number of new customers has been falling steadily.
The Alaskanas average monthly cost has fallen by about $400 since 2018, but a recent decline has been offset by the new service.
“There’s been a drop in new customers, so we have to make adjustments,” Mr Cairsons office said in an email.
The new units will run for about a year and will have no warranty.
The state is also considering a law that would allow the closure if it could be proved that it was not “appropriate to the environment, public health or public safety”.
The Alsas air conditioner unit has had an ongoing lease for the past four years and has been operating on an interim basis for that time.
“We are currently in the process of obtaining a new lease for our Aurora air conditioners,” the company said.
“Once we have a new contract we will be able to provide air conditioning to all Alaskats.”
