Air Conditioning

Close up of a residential air conditioner.

Summers here in Michigan can be breathtaking. They can also take your breath away with the high humidity we experience. Having an air conditioner in your home goes a long way in keeping your home comfortable throughout the hot season.

At Great Dane Heating and Air Conditioning we offer incomparable service and equipment in Clinton Township and its surrounds. Our company philosophy—Experience the Service You Deserve!—is the cornerstone of our customer service, meaning you will get our best in everything we do.

Whether you are looking for repairs or maintenance on your current home air conditioner or you are looking for a replacement or even delving into a first-time installation, our expert heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) team will be sure you have exactly what you need. Our team of professionals has the training, education, and experience to handle whatever your air conditioning needs may be.

When You Need an Air Conditioner Repair

Having your air conditioner break down or not working as it should is exasperating—especially during those really hot and humid days. No matter what the issue may be, our North American Technician Excellence (NATE) certified professionals can remedy it for you effectively and efficiently.

Our goal is to be sure your home-comfort needs are met. We want your air conditioner working at its optimal performance, giving you the energy savings you expect. Not staying on top of your system’s regular maintenance can negatively affect your unit’s parts, wearing them down prematurely or even causing them to break.

This stresses your air conditioner, causing it to work harder to compensate for weak parts. When your system is not running at full efficiency, it is working harder to reach your thermostat-set temperatures, thereby utilizing more energy. This is a common factor in high energy bills. And it usually also plays a hand in repair situations.

If one of your repair situations occurs at an inopportune time, we are available 24 hours a day/7 days week for emergency service. We are always here for you and will send one of our professionals out to get your air conditioner up and working again quickly and proficiently.

Time for a New Air Conditioner?

Unfortunately, there are times when your air conditioner needs more than a repair. Sometimes it requires a replacement. Or maybe your system has reached the point where its efficiency is so low, due to your unit’s age, it is costing you more and more each month in energy bills. Purchasing a new air conditioner will actually end up paying for itself over time in energy savings due to its high energy efficiency.

When you decide you are ready for a new air conditioning system, our NATE-certified experts will work with you to design the best-matched system for your comfort needs, home, and finances. We continually stay educated and trained on the top heating and cooling equipment in the industry, so we can bring every option to the table when we are working with you. Since we work with most HVAC makes and models, you can rest assured we can recommend exactly what you need.

And while we are installing your air conditioner, we will treat your home with the respect it deserves. Then after our experienced installers complete your installation, we will always leave your home as we found it. Our team’s professionalism carries through to all aspects of what we do. Your satisfaction is paramount to us.

How Much Money Can a New Air Conditioner Save You?

Our SEER2 energy savings calculator can help determine how much you could save on your utility bills. Simply enter your current unit's SEER value and compare it to a newer, more efficient SEER2 unit. You can even customize it to better match your home's system for a more accurate calculation.

You Need Regular Air Conditioner Maintenance

Ideally, you want to keep your air conditioner in optimum condition to avoid unexpected and costly repairs and breakdowns. The most efficient way to do that is to schedule regular maintenance on your air conditioner.

Regular maintenance keeps your air conditioner working reliably and efficiently, saving you money on energy costs. It also extends the life span of your system. Keeping all its parts clean and tweaked counterbalances the normal wear and tear your air conditioner experiences and helps alleviate emergencies.

We recommend having us come out to clean and check your system at least once a year. The perfect time for this maintenance is in the spring, prior to using your system the first time in the season. Our NATE-certified and factory-trained experts will prep your air conditioner, so it will give you consistent and energy-efficient cooling all summer long.

Worried about forgetting to schedule our spring visit? Don’t be. When you become a member of our Customer Care Program, we will remind you. It’s inherent with our member benefits. Depending on the plan you choose, your air conditioner tune-up and/or inspection are included in the program. Call and speak with one of our educated and friendly team members about our program today.

Customer Reviews

“Our technician, Jeffrey Stith, was absolutely fantastic today. Our air conditioning unit is 30 years old and the fan quit working. Jeff explained the possible issues and costs, and was very knowledgeable and up-front with our options. We were almost sure we would need a new unit, but Jeff got us up and running with a new capacitor. We were so relieved! We know we will need a new HVAC system soon, and we’ll definitely be calling Great Dane!!” – Michele D.

“Very pleased with the service I received from Conor Kilpatrick and his partner. Did a very good job and found a leaky capacitor on my furnace system. Also did the required steps to make sure I get my rebate from Consumers Energy and DTE. I will be using Great Dane from now on.”

Gary K.

“Ryan Miller came out with a new technician, Clay. Both wore shoe protectors. They inspected the furnace and a/c system. The a/c fluids and condition is alright. We have set our next appoint in September. On a scale of 1-5 with five being excellent, everyone is a 10. They are professional, courteous, and polite.”
