Air Conditioning Replacement in Crystal Lake

Properly maintained and serviced, your central air conditioning system should last at least 10-15 years and possibly longer. But like any piece of equipment, it will eventually show its age and need replacement.

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.
  • Rising 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.

  • The air conditioning unit that’s right for you – Our AC experts will work with you, presenting various cooling options while helping you choose the unit that best fits your budget while also meeting your cooling needs.
  • Lower energy costs through a higher SEER rating – 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 is 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 kind of complex and confusing, and determining the AC unit that’s best for you depends on a number of factors, like the outdoor summer climate, 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 save you on energy costs, while also accommodating your family budget.
