Helpful Air Conditioning and Heating 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.
