Easy Central AC Maintenance Tips

Here we are again, all of us are trying to deal with another hot and humid summer. The last thing you want to have happen is an A/C unit that breaks down on a hot July day. While I can’t make any guarantees, the best way to protect your Waterford, MI home is with air conditioning maintenance from Kotz Heating, Cooling & Plumbing.

It’s never too late to schedule service

While we are already approaching the dog days of summer, if you have not had maintenance done this year it’s still a good idea to give us a call. Our professional technicians will make sure your A/C unit is operating properly and will look for any potential problems that could cause a breakdown in the future. The maintenance call will include:

  • Compressor & air handler inspected & thoroughly cleaned
  • Pressure & refrigerant level checked
  • Check all electrical connections
  • Check condensate line
  • Inspect air filter & replace as needed

Also remember, many manufacturers require regular service by a professional technician to keep your warranty intact. If you don’t meet those requirements, you could end up paying the bill for expensive repairs.

Save the gambling for the casino

The likelihood of air conditioning breakdowns increases when maintenance is ignored. Additionally, when a problem does happen it will likely be more difficult and expensive to repair than if it had been caught in the early stages. Regular air conditioning maintenance will also extend the useful life of an A/C unit

You can help

The type of maintenance we’ve been talking about requires the skills of a trained technician but there are things you can do to help:

  • Make sure air filters are changed regularly
  • Cut back landscaping & shrubs around the compressor to assure good airflow
  • Also clean up leaves & grass clippings
  • Use a garden hose (no high-pressure nozzle) to clean the cooling fins

Quality without compromise

That’s the promise from Kotz Heating, Cooling & Plumbing. Don’t gamble with your A/C unit during these hot summer months. Call now and schedule your air conditioning maintenance. Be sure to like and follow us on Facebook and Twitter.
