Your Get Ready for Spring Checklist

Now that we’ve all sprung forward (at least we hope you didn’t forget), we can turn our attention to getting ready for the change of seasons. For many people, spring is their favorite season. The winter is behind us and new growth is all around us, but there can be some drawbacks.

There are spring allergies and the whole issue of indoor air quality (IAQ). Even the experts disagree about the reasons, but the number of people who suffer from asthma and allergies is increasing sharply. For them, the air they breathe is as important to their quality of life as the food they eat and the water they drink. Our Kotz technicians can use an indoor air quality monitor to determine if there are problems in your home.

A good first step is to change your HVAC filter(s). If you’re still using run-of-the-mill furnace filters, now is the time to talk with Kotz about upgrading. Call us to find out which filter is recommended for your system. It’s important to remember filters only remove particulates. If you want to purify the air and kill things like viruses and bacteria, the best choice is a system using ultraviolet light (UV). One of the best is the in-duct Reme HaloⓇ featured by Kotz.

Now is also the time to prepare for wet spring weather. Melting snow and spring rain can quickly raise the groundwater level. Without preparations on your part, the result can be water in your basement. It’s a good idea to call our Kotz plumbers in Waterford, MI to talk about sump pumps. If you already have one, we can make sure it’s working properly and is ready for the wet weather ahead.

Saturated ground causes nearly all basement flooding. As the water table rises, the hydrostatic pressure can overwhelm even the best waterproofing measures. The pressure is so great it can force water into your basement through concrete walls and floors. A sump pump reduces that pressure. It’s almost always installed in a pit underneath your basement floor. When the groundwater rises, the pump turns on and forces the water through a pipe to the outside.

Not every house needs a sump pump, but it doesn’t make much sense to wait until you have six inches of water on your basement floor before you decide to buy one. Our Kotz experts can look at several factors and help you make the decision that’s best for you. Kotz can also install water sensors that will warn you if water is present on the basement floor. It can happen if the pump is overwhelmed or stops working.

Call Kotz Heating, Cooling & Plumbing now to make sure your HVAC and plumbing systems in Waterford, MI and the surrounding area are ready for spring’s arrival. Just one more way we’ve been keeping your home comfortable (and dry) since we opened our doors in 1929.
