FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Here is a list of some common questions answered by our heating and Air conditioning experts.

Will buying an ENERGY STAR heating/air conditioning system save me money?

ENERGY STAR is a government guarantee that the appliance meets firm efficiency standards. Buying ENERGY STAR appliances reduce monthly utility costs and environmental pollution. ENERGY STAR systems save thousands of dollars in energy bills over the lifespan of the appliance.

What is the average life expectancy of a Heating and Air Conditioning System operating in the Chicago Area?

The average life of a Commercial Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning System is 12 years.

The average life of a residential furnace and air conditioning system is 15- 20 years.

Inefficient Heating and Cooling systems many times can be upgraded with the energy savings paying for the replacement cost in 3 to 6 years. Financing and leasing programs are available.

Will updating my thermostat save money?

The new high-quality thermostats we install are easy to use and spot-on accurate. Considering a Wi-Fi thermostat, a programmable thermostat or a non-programmable thermostat? Talk to us and we will assist you in your decision. At times a simple thermostat is a better fit.

Why would I consider a Ductless Mini Split system?

Because they flat out work! These systems have been popular overseas for 40 years. We put our first system in over 25 years ago and it still works today. With the latest modulating technology these systems can be a primary source of heat in the Chicagoland area and have an efficiency level that is off the charts. If you have a hard to heat or cool room this may be the answer. One thing to keep in mind is that Ductless systems need to be sized correctly to perform well.

How can I keep my home or building safe from carbon monoxide pollution?

Carbon monoxide is often undetectable because it’s invisible and unscented. Heating equipment, Chimneys and Flues must be properly maintained to avoid the release of carbon monoxide.

  • Schedule annual tune-ups
  • Change out detectors and batteries as needed
  • Don’t conform to the ostrich head in the sand mentality that it worked last year so it should be OK this year.

What should I be looking for in a heating and cooling company?

  • Are they a reputable and established company?
  • Do they have long term, knowledgeable employees?
  • Do they have great online reviews?
  • Do I see their trucks and are they involved in our community?
  • Do I need a company with hundreds of people or one that can put one or two very good people in my home?
  • Will they be back to my home if I have issues or need service down the road?
  • Do they continually get annual no complaint awards from the BBB?
  • Do you want a technician in your home that you feel comfortable with?
