Air Conditioning and Heating System Service Tips

When is it time to replace?
When your heat pump or air conditioner is more than 10 years old consider replacing it with a unit that has earned the ENERGY STAR label. Installed correctly, these high-efficiency units can save up to 20 percent on heating and cooling costs, eliminating the need for furnace or AC repair in Las Vegas.

When your equipment needs frequent repairs and your energy bills are going up.
Your cooling or heating equipment may have become less efficient.

When some rooms in your home are too hot or too cold
Improper equipment operation, duct problems or inadequate insulation could be the cause.

When your home has humidity problems
Poor equipment operation, inadequate equipment, and leaky ductwork can cause the air to be too dry in the winter or too humid in the summer.

When your home has more dust than you are comfortable with.
Leaky ducts can pull particles and air from attics, crawl spaces and basements and distribute them throughout your house. A through Duct evaluation can identify the problem and rest assured that Windy City can provide the solution.

When your heating or cooling system is noisy
You could have an undersized duct system or a problem with the indoor coil of your cooling equipment.

Are permits required?
Pulling a permit is something that is required by the building department. We pull permits on all of our unit replacements. If our competition is not willing to or does not currently pull permits, there is probably a reason why they don’t.

How much do new systems cost?
There are a lot of options and factors that determine the cost of the installed equipment. For instance, size of equipment, SEER level of equipment, variable speed motor or single speed motor, Duct sizing, indoor air quality solutions. Those are just a few options. For this reason, we like to meet with our prospective clients and sit down to determine what exactly what they want or expect from us.

We needed an A/C person fast so i called Windy City and they were totally honest and said they couldn’t make it until late that evening. We got updates on the arrival time and about 7:00pm our door bell rang. It was an easy fix, thank goodness, and so we recommended them to a friend who needed a whole new A/C system. Our friends were so please with the price and the service. Whew, as you don’t want to lose a friend over a recommendation. Windy City came out again for our winter check up and again a great experience. Our tech knew all about humidifiers, a rare thing to find in Las Vegas. We are so please with Windy City….thanks to Chicagoans in the Desert for helping us find them.

When our a/c went out during a very hot August day, we needed to find someone fast. Windy City was totally booked but said they be at our house before the days end. Best of all Tammy kept me updated on how things were going time wise. About 7:30pm our serviceman rang the bell. He found the problem to be just a capacitor and fixed it immediately. There it was, over and done with no hype, no trying to sell us something, just fixed the problem and gone. We were so pleased. Thanks WindyCity. Nice to have good old fashioned “Chicago” service again in the desert.

I had them come out and do a free check up on my air system. I was very impressed with the professionalism of the staff. They were very detailed in their inspection. They did not try to hard sell me on additional services. I would highly recommend them to anyone.
