Prepare Now for the Summer Heat Just Ahead

Spring football practice is almost complete for the Wolverines and the Spartans. What does that mean in the world of HVAC in Waterford, MI? It means the countdown is on for the first hot weather of the spring and summer. Experience tells us the heat isn’t far away. Kotz Heating, Cooling & Plumbing wants to make sure you are ready for what lies ahead.

The very first thing you should be doing is calling to schedule your air conditioner tune-up. Listen, it’s easy to put that phone call on the back burner while you’re outside enjoying spring yard work and planting the garden, but here’s the deal: The last thing you want to do is wait until the hot weather arrives. We speak from experience. On the first day it reaches the 80’s or 90’s, our phone is going to be ringing off the hook from people looking for HVAC service. When it happens, you could be stuck waiting for hours, or even a day or two. Not fun if your air conditioning isn’t working.

Trained technicians from Kotz will make sure your system is running efficiently and safely. When you call us in for an A/C tune-up, this is a partial list of the services you will receive:

  • Cleaning of condenser coils (increases efficiency and reduces wear & tear)
  • Check refrigerant level and check for leaks
  • Lubricate all moving parts
  • Verify thermostat is working correctly
  • Inspect ductwork for signs of leaks
  • Inspect all electrical connections and tighten as needed
  • Evaluate condition of blower motor and blower belt

If we had a nickel for every time we’re asked if A/C tune-ups are worth the money, we would have a lot of nickels. We’ve been in the heating and cooling business in Waterford, MI for a long time, and we firmly believe your A/C is just like any other mechanical system with lots of moving parts. It requires routine maintenance if you want it to last a long time and work correctly.

The maintenance is especially critical this time of year, and not only because the temperature is going up. The humidity level is also going to increase as we get later into spring and summer. When there’s more moisture in the air the A/C has to work harder to remove it, and if it can’t do it properly, your home isn’t going to feel comfortable.

Please enjoy spring because it’s a great time of year in Michigan, but don’t forget about the hot and humid weather coming. Call Kotz Heating, Cooling & Plumbing for all of your HVAC needs in Clarkston, MI and the surrounding area. We will make sure you stay cool and comfortable when the heat arrives.
