Air Conditioner Install in Carpentersville, IL

Call Five Star Heating & Air for a New Air Conditioner in Carpentersville

A central air conditioning system that receives regular, professional maintenance services should last about 10 to 15 years. Just like any other equipment, however, over time your system will wear out and you’ll have to get a new one.

When that need arises, Five Star Heating & Air is ready to serve you with our expert AC installation services in Carpentersville.

When to Replace Your AC System

Here are a few signs indicating you may need to begin thinking about AC replacement.

  • No cool air – When your unit comes on, cool air should start flowing out of your vents within about 30 seconds. If that doesn’t happen, it might be because of a small issue that can be resolved by replacing a dirty filter, for example. Or the lack of cool air may indicate your unit has seen better days.
  • Frequent breakdowns and expensive repairs – If your unit frequently malfunctions and requires costly repairs, it is probably time to replace it.
  • Strange sounds – When your unit’s operating properly, the sound it’s making should be very minimal. But if it’s making strange noises – chattering, squeaking, grinding – it’s probably telling you its best days are behind it.
  • Strange odors – Your AC unit should be emitting nothing but clean, cool air. If you smell something strange, like burning or smoke, it means there is a serious problem with your unit.
  • Higher utility bills – If your summer temperature settings haven’t changed but your utility bills keep climbing, that’s a pretty good indicator your old unit is struggling to keep you comfortable and you need to replace it.

Save on Energy Costs with an Energy-efficient AC from Five Star Heating & Air

If you have any of these problems, contact Five Star Heating & Air for the best AC installation and replacement in Carpentersville. In addition to the highest quality installation services, with Five Star Heating & Air, you’ll get all the following.

  • A choice of AC options – Our AC experts will offer different cooling options and help you select the best unit for your budget and cooling requirements.
  • A higher SEER rating and lower energy costs – Our technicians will explain how a higher SEER rating can save you money on energy costs. They will do this when helping you choose the best AC unit for your needs.

In case you’re not already familiar with it, SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio, and the higher the SEER rating, the more efficient the unit and the lower your energy costs should be.

The U.S. Department of Energy has implemented what’s called SEER2, an updated version of the SEER rating system, that became effective on January 1, 2023. This revised version of the SEER system requires that all new air conditioners in northern states like Illinois must have a SEER2 rating of at least 13.4 or higher.

This SEER topic can become very complex and confusing, and determining the AC unit that’s best for you depends on a number of factors. These include things like the typical outdoor summer climate in your area, the size of your house, the number of family members, and more.

You can be assured, however, that our cooling experts will work with you to find a unit with a SEER2 rating that will keep your home cool and comfortable while saving you on energy costs and fitting into your family budget.
