As the chill of winter gives way to the gentle warmth of spring, it is the perfect time to prepare your air conditioner for the hot summer days ahead here in Michigan. 

Preventative maintenance will ensure the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system in your Sterling Heights home is in prime condition. A spring tune-up is more than just routine maintenance. It is a proactive step toward a more comfortable and efficient living space.

Let our experts at Great Dane Heating and Air Conditioning inspect your air conditioner before the cooling season starts. We recommend preventative maintenance for furnaces, boilers, and heat pumps in the fall and AC checkups in the spring.  If you skipped your heat pump tune-up last fall, schedule maintenance before you begin using your unit in cooling mode this year. Heat pumps work year-round and benefit from a tune-up annually.

Whether you join our Customer Care Program or plan to schedule maintenance on your own, here is what to expect from a spring tune-up: 

  • System Inspection
    Our experienced technicians will thoroughly inspect your air conditioner. We carefully examine all components, checking for wear, leaks, and budding issues that could lead to a breakdown.
  • Examining Ductwork
    Leaky or damaged air ducts can significantly affect HVAC system efficiency. We thoroughly examine your duct system during a tune-up and seal cracks to restore efficiency. We will ensure that conditioned air reaches every corner of your Macomb County home.
  • Thermostat Calibration
    Your thermostat plays a central role in maintaining a comfortable indoor environment. We will calibrate and test your thermostat during a tune-up, ensuring accurate temperature control. This step helps prevent energy waste and ensures that your HVAC system responds promptly to your comfort needs.
  • Coil Cleaning
    Outdoor and indoor coils can accumulate dirt and debris over time, hindering the efficiency of your air conditioner or heat pump. A professional tune-up includes cleaning the condenser and evaporator coils, promoting optimal heat exchange, and preventing potential breakdowns.
  • Refrigerant Check
    The correct refrigerant level is essential for efficient cooling. During an AC tune-up in your Sterling Heights home, our technician will check the refrigerant level and recharge it if necessary. This step not only ensures peak performance but also helps extend the life span of your HVAC unit.
  • Safety Checks
    Safety is paramount when it comes to your cooling system. Our qualified technicians always conduct a safety check during air conditioning tune-ups. We examine electrical connections and other critical components, giving you peace of mind.
