Your air conditioning system is going to require service eventually. The trick is trying to figure out when the AC must be fixed and when you can skate by until a few weeks later when you’ve got the money to pay for it. Unfortunately, the safe bet is that most AC problems would be better off with immediate attention. Realistically though, you might not have the money right now to pay for an immediate repair.
We completely understand, and we’re never going to shame anyone for being on a strict budget. Times are tough, especially with high gas prices and supply chain problems, it’s important that you only spend money on things that you absolutely need to. Let’s talk about air conditioning repair in Morton Grove, IL, and whether or not you need to schedule it immediately.
Our team is always available to give you additional pointers if you need specific support.

You might not think that an HVAC provider would consider a “repair too expensive,” but we’re going to go out on a limb and say that it absolutely happens. Sometimes your air conditioner repair in Winnetka, IL is going to be absurdly expensive, like when the compressor fails or breaks down, and you’re going to consider whether to even invest in this service at all. It happens, and especially with so many people going through economic turmoil, these decisions are becoming more frequent.
We’re not here to tell you what’s worth your money. Only you can make the best financial decision for your budget and your family. But what we will tell you is that AC repairs can sometimes be too expensive, because you’re likely looking at a replacement issue. Replacement is going to be expensive, but the long-term savings from a full system replacement can usually be much better than the results from an expensive repair.

When we write blogs, we’re mainly trying to aim them at community members who might need our helpful services. We’ve got a lot of heat pump owners in the area, so we like to write insightful blogs about heat pumps so that they know when to call for help. Today is going to be one of those days, so if you’re encountering heat pump issues, you’re in the right place!
A refrigerant leak is one of the most insidious problems you can encounter as a heat pump owner. Heat pumps rely on refrigerant to both heat and cool a home, so when the system starts accidentally ejecting refrigerant, your efficiency, comfort, and heat pump will suffer as a result.

This is a simple question but the answer might not be so easy. For anyone who isn’t familiar with the gas known as “carbon monoxide,” it’s an odorless, colorless material that is a byproduct of combustion. It’s extremely dangerous to inhale and can easily lead to nausea, fatigue, memory loss, impaired motor function, and even unconsciousness. For any homeowner with a gas furnace, you should know about this material and how it works.
Don’t worry, furnaces are safe machines. We wouldn’t install gas-burning systems in homes if we didn’t believe that they could operate safely without exposing your family to carbon monoxide. However, over years of neglect and through missed or amateur furnace repair in Glenview, IL, a furnace can quickly become unsafe.
Let’s talk about how you might be able to detect if your furnace is leaking carbon monoxide, and what you can do about it.

This blog post might serve more as a public service announcement than an advice column. There are plenty of homeowners in our area that use heat pumps during the winter to stay warm without consuming too much energy. The systems are great heaters and they work exceptionally well when temperatures are moderately cold. However, when we get sudden dips in temperature, there can be a serious problem that occurs.
Heat pumps can sometimes start running in recovery mode, which is a specific process it has to go through when it’s starting to freeze. This can be a little disconcerting for homeowners that start receiving cold air from their vents.
Don’t worry, you can always call us if you think you need heat pump repair in Glenview, IL. Though, if you’re just dealing with a heat pump that’s defrosting, we’ll talk about why that might not be as much of a problem as you might think!
