Regular preventative maintenance and cleaning is the best way to keep your heating or cooling system functioning optimally.

How long should a new heating and cooling system last?
The average air conditioner lasts 12-15 years, while a gas furnace can last 20-25 years. There are many variables that affect the life expectancy of your specific equipment, including the frequency of routine maintenance.
Where are air filters located?
Your air filter is located in either the blower compartment of your furnace, in an attached filter case, or in a wall-mounted return air grille. If you cannot locate the air filter, call us … we’re here to help – 248-706-9100.
Should I cover my air conditioner in the winter?
Covering the unit is not necessary. In fact, covering an entire unit may actually trap moisture.
