Retrofit Your Home and Improve Energy Efficiency

When well-maintained, the average air conditioner or heater has a useful service life of 10-15 years. Sure, they can operate past that time, but will they do so as efficiently as possible? Likely not! Our Winnetka HVAC technicians conduct quality repairs and tune-ups to keep older systems as efficient as we can, but we can’t understate the benefit of retrofitting your older home with a new HVAC system!

Our retrofitting services will improve your household’s energy efficiency, and therefore lower your utility bills. Even in just the last decade, there have been massive improvements in technology to help heaters and air conditioners perform better than ever before. An inverter AC retrofit is a perfect example—the inverter drive takes the central air conditioner but gives it variable speeds so you don’t have to use its most powerful setting on mild summer days when you don’t need it.

The Best Heating Retrofit Replacements

We are a Carrier Factory Authorized Dealer, and are proud to work with one of the leading companies in HVAC manufacturing. When it comes to heating your home, we have a number of options for installation. One option that other contractors rarely offer is radiant heating retrofits.

Radiant heating systems run hot water through a terminal point inside the home, such as radiators, baseboard heaters, or in-floor tubes. This type of heating provides even heat distribution, high energy efficiency, and even improves indoor air quality. Traditionally, radiant heating is installed when a home is being newly constructed. But our retrofit services allow our technicians to set older homes up with the various types of radiant heaters, including:

  • In-Floor Heating: In an in-floor system, warm water flows through flexible plastic tubing called PEX, located under or within the floors of your home.
  • Boilers: A boiler system warms water and sends it either to various radiators throughout your home or to the tubing of and in-floor radiant heating system.

Don’t hesitate to reach out to our team to learn more about radiant heating and other heating retrofit options for your home.
