A Failing Air Conditioner Could Make Your Summer Expensive & Miserable

Ah yes, the first day of summer. The sunshine, the heat, the summer storms, the heat, fresh garden produce, the heat, trips to the lake, and the heat.

Hmm, there seems to be a recurring theme. Kotz Heating, Cooling & Plumbing understands there are a lot of reasons to like summer. But there aren’t too many people who can truthfully say they like hot and humid weather. Especially if your air conditioner isn’t up to the job of keeping your home cool and comfortable.

When the AC unit can’t do the job, a hot night in June, July, or August is miserable for the whole family. Call in the experts from Kotz, voted the best of the best for heating and cooling in Waterford Michigan and all of Oakland County.

Let’s start with the “R” word everyone fears – replacement. It doesn’t have to be scary. If it turns out you need a new AC system, it will come with several advantages.

Near the top of the list is getting rid of an old air conditioner using R-22 , which is being phased out because of environmental concerns. Starting in 2020, it will no longer be manufactured or imported in the U.S. Already the cost is skyrocketing meaning it may not be worthwhile to continue repairing your old unit.

The refrigerant is so valuable that thieves in Tennessee recently stole more than $22,000 worth of R-22 from a supply house.

If your air conditioner is failing, chances are good you’ve been seeing your monthly bills go up and up. A new AC unit will reverse that trend, especially if your old one is 10 years old or more. Improved technology means you could cut your efficiency use by up to 30%.

We’re not trying to pull a fast one. Kotz knows the advantages come at a price. A new air conditioner is a big investment. Rest assured our comfort consultants will look for every possible way to save you money.

Kotz features air conditioners from Trane, one of the most respected names in the business. Check out their summer replacement offers.

Summer is just starting. Don’t spend the next 3 months or more being miserable in your home. When you add it all up, the R-22 phase-out and monthly utility savings, the “R” word isn’t as scary as it sounds.
