Super High Efficient Boiler Installed in ChicagoHigh Efficient Weil McLain Water Boiler with a Continuous Hot Water Tank

Boiler installation can only be relied on by experts who have are commitment to the highest standards of safety and security of your home.

Residential Hot Water Boilers

A residential hot water boiler is used to heat water for a hydronic heating system.

A hydronic heating system maintains comfort in your home with hot water circulating to every room. The system consists of a boiler, pump and baseboards connected by water piping. The boiler heats water to temperatures between 120º and 210º, and the water is then pumped through the piping in the baseboards located around the outer perimeter of the home for a curtain of warmth, or in the floor in radiant systems.

Weil-McLain® residential boilers can be used in space conditioning, radiant, or snow melting applications, or with an indirect fired water heater for an almost endless supply of domestic hot water.

My Home Air conditioner Is Not Cooling?

My home air conditioner is not cooling what can it be?

photo2My home air conditioner is not cooling what can it be? Home air conditioners can be fussy at times and we as an air conditioner contractor know this all too well.
Many home air conditioner problems can be linked directly to lack of maintenance. This is not always the case that’s for sure, however it’s usually the majority of home air conditioner problems.
My home air conditioner is not cooling what can it be? We have also found that improper installations from the get go causes home air conditioning problems later on in the home air conditioners life.

You may wonder how could it have worked all those years in the past and now it’s not? Well, over time with improper installation many internal issues develop such as compressor winding issues contaminated Freon, low Freon from day one.

My home air conditioner is not cooling what can the problem be? Like cars in our region, they seam to wear out over the years and require maintenance in the same manner as; old tires, rust issues, squeaky doors, and so on. Home air conditioners have the same wear patterns; Rust occurs in the evaporator coils, compressors fail due to excessive use with low maintenance.

Your home air conditioner is an appliance and will fail at some point. We live in a time where planned obsolescence’s is dictated by corporations. Home air conditioners, cell phones, washers and dryers and pretty much anything made on this planet today is made to break down sooner than later. Go back 30, 40, 50 years ago appliances as well as pretty much anything else for that matter was made to last.

Home troubleshooting tips.

My home air conditioner is not cooling what can it be?
First thing first, start by checking the condition of the furnace filter. If dirty or slightly dirty remove it and install a fresh filter. (Please do not use those expensive pleated filters) Natural air filters or Flounders filters are OK to use.

Second item would be to insure your unit outside is running or attempting to run, remember we have many lighting storms that disrupt power, so there for go to your electrical panel and look for a double pole 30 or 40 amp breaker and see if its tripped. If you have a big system then 50 or 60 amp breakers may have been used. Same applies see if breaker is tripped.

Also if you can excess the outdoor unit look closely at condenser and see if it’s clogged with dirt or cotton wood. If it is, by all means get a garden hose and clean the condenser. If none of the above helps in making your home air conditioner work correctly then it’s time to Call a certified air conditioning company such as Around the Town Heating and Cooling.

Air Conditioning Maintenance

Air Conditioning Maintenance.

air conditioning maintenance

Chris is performing a deep cleaning on this Trane unit, which had a few leaks internal. but we cleaned and repaired the a/c, all is good.

It’s funny how every year we send out post card  and online reminders concerning the importance of air conditioning maintenance.  Many consumers/homeowners ignore these reminders. 80% of the homeowners that ignore our reminders end up spending more money on air conditioning repairs or a new air conditioner (due to lack of maintenance). The customers of ours that heed our reminders very seldom have breakdowns of their HVAC systems.  Sure that rule doesn’t always apply, especially if furnace filters aren’t changed regularly. Besides mechanical equipment does tend to break from time to time even with heating and air conditioning maintenance. But the odds decrease ten fold in your favor.

We do not send these reminders because we have nothing better to do; we send these to help insure your air conditioning system is working at peak performances. Does it create work for us? Yes it does, however air conditioning maintenance saves you money as well as gives you a piece of mind, knowing the condition of your central air conditioning system, especially when the sweltering heat of Chicago summer arrives.

I write the blogs as you will, to help you the consumers know what’s right concerning your heating and air conditioning equipment. I guess I can say nothing and allow you the consumer to continuously pay up the wazoo for heating and air conditioning repairs or replacement. But then I wouldn’t be doing my job as an expert HVAC contractor.

HVAC EMERGENCY REPAIR SERVICE

Need emergency service? call the HERT team of Around The Town Heating and Cooling

Bottom line, be diligent, and have your air conditioning system maintained.

Your cost of maintenance will run you approximately $89.95 for single family homes with the outside condenser unit on the ground.

Town homes and condo’s as well as high rises can vary from $139.00 to $229.00 residential.
Commercial roof tops a/c maintenance may run you about $279.00 and up.

A/C Pricing Chicago

A/C Pricing Chicago

As a consumer, I’m sure by now that all the sales gimmicks you see on TV or the newspaper shouldn’t fool you a bit. For example, the ad gimmick which sounds too good to be true (usually is) these ads are designed to either get you into the ad persons store to sell you something or to have a salesmen to your home or business to up sell you. And in all fairness that’s the retail business game.

However with Around the Town Heating and Cooling if our sales price is in print, then that will be the price. Our ad will inform you of what you are receiving for that price. No gimmicks here. Now lets be pragmatic. If you call and ask for a price from us, and tell us exactly what you need, we quote you and if  what you told us turns out differently than of course the price my change. Remember folk’s apples for apples.

We see our competitors say and show all kinds of pricing for new furnace and a/c’s,  however what I’m told by those customers shopping out our competitors pricing, is that it’s always different. Remember apples for apples and watch closely any wording and pricing that they may use to get their foot into your door.

We are a small HVAC shop and we service our customers one at a time, and on a personal basis verses a business basis. We want you to be as comfortable with us as we would like to be comfortable installing your heating and cooling. Have you ever had a tyrant for a boss and you didn’t complete your duties as well as you could have? It’s a two way street, we want to be comfortable installing your HVAC equipment.

Maybe our sales approach is unorthodox but this is how we roll. And the crew and owners of Around the Town Heating and Cooling sleep well at night knowing we have a no gimmick approach and we never bait and switch. You get what you pay for and then some every time, all the time.
Call and ask about our air conditioning sales pricing.

Thanks Ed

Home Air conditioning Pricing

Home air conditioning pricing has a broad range.

Home air conditioning pricing can vary because every residential homeowner has different home air conditioning needs or wants. Home air conditioning pricing can change considerably if the home owner wants the highest seer rating that’s available to them. Seer rating stands for Season Energy Efficiency Ratio. This is basically the amount of electrical energy your home air conditioning system consumes for the season. Higher the seer, more efficient the ac is. Of course the cost of higher seer ac units increases.

home air conditioning pricing

One a/c unit is 13 seer the other a/c unit is 16 seer, can you tell the difference?

Basic high efficient home air conditioning pricing also varies if you have a conventional air conditioning system ,a Space pack a/c, Unico system or even the Mitsubishi ductless air conditioning system.

A conventional air conditioning system is the furnace, evaporator coil above the furnace and your outside unit which is commonly referred to as your a/c. We in the trades call it a condenser, which is what the outdoor unit really is.

Home air conditioning pricing has increased a bit because of the retrofitting the new a/c systems from R-22 to the new governed refrigerant 410-a. R -22 refrigerant has been said to have opened the ozone layers even wider than the pollution from manufacturing.
So having read the information above you will see the home air conditioning pricing range from $2600.00 to $12000.00. Your basic 13 seer home air conditioning pricing in the Chicago-land area should set you back on an average of $3000.00.

To know your real cost or your home air conditioning system it is best to have 3 HVAC contractors come out and give you a free estimate.

Home Air Conditioning Repair Chicago

Home air conditioning repair Chicago has many different aspects to your home air conditioning system.

Home air conditioning repair chicago

During an home air conditioning clean and tune up we inspect all of these components of your central a/c unit

 

Home air conditioning repair Chicago can be as simple as changing a furnace filter or as difficult as pulling the sheet metal apart to clean the clogged evaporator coil.Home air conditioning repair Chicago can also be so expensive that replacing your home central air conditioning system would be a wiser choice verses repair. Over the years servicing a home central air conditioners in Chicago and the surrounding suburbs, I have seen one common element.

The common elements I have seen that causes home air conditioning system break downs are lack of maintenance.
Home air conditioning systems require maintenance such as insuring that the Freon levels are correct.
Why is this important? Proper Freon levels insure 3 things, 1 aids in keeping compressor cool, 2 insures that no liquid refrigerant is going into the compressor (compressors pump gases not liquid). 3 proper Freon levels along with clean furnace filters and clean evaporator coil mean comfort cooling for you.

There are other factors to consider with your home air conditioning repair Chicago. That is your drainage for your home air conditioning system. If you live on the upper floor of apartments and condos then this is critical. If your drain clogs then the home owners below you will suffer the water damage from your clogged drain. And your furnace may get ruined from water leaking on the electrical components of your furnace. Circuit control board, transformer and blower motor.

This article is basically a preamble letting you know the importance of home air conditioning maintenance.

Air Conditioning Cages

Air conditioning cages are a necessity today due to the high rate of stolen central air conditioning systems or better yet the outdoor unit which is called a condenser.

Air conditioning cages is a theft deterrent and will make most air conditioning thieves think twice before stealing your central air conditioner.

Talking with Chicago police detectives they tell us that if a thief really wants your central air conditioner they will find a way to steal it. The CPD also said that the would-be thieves will wait watch and time their theft. The thieves will know your home and away schedule better than you. If you are in a high crime neighborhood, change things up bit, like changing what lights you leave on every couple of days as well as installing a pad lock on your gate off the alley way. If you have a privacy fenced off yard then installing an air conditioning cage is exactly what you need. According to CPD if the thieves get in and have time, they will cut the cage apart. Camera systems may be needed as well as alarms.
