Top 8 Reasons to Replace that Old Furnace | Maywood and Frankfort

Sunday, September 21st, 2014
  1. Cracked Heat Exchanger
  2. If you have been told by a serviceman that the heat exchanger on your furnace is cracked or severely rusted, you should replace the entire furnace. A cracked heat exchanger can lead to a deadly carbon monoxide leak. Also, when the heat exchanger is in this condition there is a good chance the rest of the unit isn’t in that great of shape either. Replacing the entire unit will save more money in the long run.

  3. Age of Unit
  4. Forced air furnaces usually last between 15 and 25 years depending on how well they were cared for. If you furnace is in that age range, replacement is recommended. Get ahead of the game and replace the furnace before it breaks down in the middle of our bitter cold Chicago winters.

  5. High Energy Bills
  6. If your energy bills seem to be outrageously high or if they keep increasing every year, odds are the furnace is to blame. Old furnaces are inefficient to begin with, but with time and wear and tear, they waste more and more energy. A new high efficiency furnace will drastically reduce your heating bills. (more…)

When the furnace or air conditioner unexpectedly fails in the middle of the night, you may be a little apprehensive about calling an emergency repair service. On one hand you want your unit back up and running as soon as possible, but on the other hand, you don’t want to be taken advantage of just because you are desperate for functional heating or cooling. When deciding whether or not to hire an emergency repair contractor, you need to look at both the good and the bad in order to choose your repairman wisely.

The Good

This is what happens when you choose the right 24 hour repair contractor:

  • Receive top of the line services at a fair price despite the inconvenient time
  • Peace of mind knowing you have someone to help you with the furnace or air conditioner no matter what time of day it is
  • Starting  a trusting relationship with a professional company so that you have someone to lean on for your future heating and cooling needs (more…)

Why Invest in a Two- Stage Furnace?| Glenwood, Addison, Burr Ridge

Saturday, September 6th, 2014

WHY INVEST IN A 2-STAGE FURNACE? This is one of the most frequently asked questions to an HVAC professional, which is not surprising given the many misconceptions that are out there. The main advantage to the two stage furnace is the improved home comfort that is achieved through the reduced indoor temperature fluctuations that the 2-stage furnace delivers, NOT increased efficiency (a 90% furnace is 90% efficient, regardless of how many stages it runs in).
