Halloween Edition: HVAC Horror Stories

Are the decorations in place? Have the costumes been bought? Is the candy hidden away from the little ones…and some of the adults too? Yes, it is nearly time for Halloween which means endless scary stories about ghosts and goblins leading up to the night of costume parties and trick or treating adventures. Kotz Heating, Cooling & Plumbing also has some scary stories to share with homeowners in Waterford, MI and Oxford, MI when it comes to HVAC horrors.


This can create an HVAC horror for your family. Without proper maintenance and filter changes, your heating and cooling systems can make the air you breathe unhealthier. Exposure to poor indoor air quality aggravates asthma and allergy symptoms, and can even cause headaches, fatigue, and dizziness. Don’t be tricked. Call Kotz and give your family the treat of an advanced filtration system or an air purifier. 


This is not a Halloween legend to scare children. This is a type of pneumonia that is prone to spread through air conditioning units and it’s serious business. Many people exposed to it never develop symptoms, but it’s a serious threat to those with weakened immune systems. This includes the elderly and those with chronic lung disease. Professional maintenance is the best way to keep the bacteria from growing and thereby prevent this HVAC horror story.


This involves perhaps the scariest HVAC horror story…carbon monoxide poisoning. One of the most common causes is a cracked heat exchanger in your gas furnace. It allows this deadly gas that is colorless, odorless, and tasteless to spread throughout your Waterford, MI or Oxford, MI home. Every time a Kotz technician performs furnace maintenance, he or she will closely examine the heat exchanger looking for any sign of a crack. It is the only way to prevent this scary furnace story from turning into a true HVAC horror.


Make sure the only ghouls in your Halloween are the ones in costumes and your kids end up with bags full of treats. Prevent any unpleasant or even deadly HVAC horrors by calling Kotz Heating, Cooling & Plumbing to schedule maintenance for the heating system in your home.
