Air Conditioning Installation in Crystal Lake

Call Five Star Heating & Air for AC Installation in Crystal Lake

A central air conditioning system that receives regular, professional maintenance services should last about 10 to 15 years, and possibly a little longer. Like any piece of equipment, however, no matter how well it’s maintained, yearly wear and tear will take its toll, and eventually you’ll need to replace your system.

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

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 30 seconds or so. If that doesn’t happen, it may be due to a minor problem that can be fixed, like replacing an old dirty filter. Or the lack of cool air may indicate your unit has seen better days.
  • Frequent breakdowns and expensive repairs – If despite your efforts to prevent problems, your unit repeatedly breaks down, forcing you to spend your hard-earned dollars on repairs, it’s probably time to think of a replacement.
  • 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 detect strange odors – like a burning or smokey smell – that’s a sure sign of serious trouble 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 it’s probably time to think of a replacement unit.

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

If you’re dealing with any of these issues, and possibly more than one of them, it’s time to reach out to Five Star Heating & Air for the very best AC installation and replacement in the Crystal Lake area.

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 work with you, providing various cooling options while helping you choose the unit that fits your budget while also meeting your cooling needs.
  • A higher SEER rating and lower energy costs – As part of helping you find the AC unit that’s best for you, our technicians will explain the energy savings possible through a higher SEER rating.

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.
