EXPERT OFFERS AIR CONDITIONING TIPS TO KEEP YOUR SUMMER COOL

 DETROIT, May 7 /PRNewswire/ -- With warm weather just around the corner, air conditioning experts have several tips for homeowners who are buying or maintaining an air conditioning system. Gary Marowske, vice president of Flame Furnace, Inc. offers these basic tips if you are buying a home air conditioning system.
 -- Pick a quality contractor. Look for licensed, insured contractors who have been in business for a long time. For background on contractors in your area, check with the Better Business Bureau, your local building inspection department or the State of Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulation.
 -- Be sure the contractor has copies of all city permits required for the installation. Contractors should be able to show you copies of these permits before they begin work.
 -- Have the contractor explain the energy efficiency of the unit they are recommending. This is known as the SEER Rating (seasonal energy efficiency rating). The rating should be a minimum of 10.0. A rating of 12.0 is considered an excellent rating but you will pay more for a system of this efficiency.
 -- Always purchase an air conditioner from one of the top national brands. That is your best assurance that parts and services are readily available. Brands that have local service and parts offices in the Detroit area include Bryant, Lennox and Carrier.
 Marowske also has several tips for homeowners who already have home cooling systems and need to get their systems ready for summer. They are:
 -- Prepare your cooling system for the summer season by washing down the outside unit and removing all leaves and debris attached to the coil.
 -- Shut off the water to the humidifier and drain the system.
 -- Clean or replace all filters, if needed.
 -- Check the fuse or breaker to make sure the system is on. Also, be sure that the thermostat is set correctly.
 -- If the system is not working after completing the above, contact your local heating and cooling contractor for servicing.
