Things to Consider Before Investing in an Air Conditioner

At Deljo Heating & Cooling, we’ve provided AC repair in Niles and other Chicagoland communities for generations, and we know that the system keeping your home or office cool and comfortable for months on end represents a considerable investment.

To help you get the most return for your hard-earned money, we want to point out a few things for you to consider before investing in an AC system.

How large should the air conditioner be?

When you contact Deljo for a free, no-obligation estimate, our experienced, NATE-certified technician will first conduct what’s called a Manual load calculation. This HVAC industry standard takes into consideration a host of factors including your home or office’s size and layout, its orientation, the amount of shade, if any, and the number and location of windows and outside doors.

With this information, we can provide an updated calculation of your home or office’s cooling needs, and from there we’ll design a system that will cool your property efficiently and effectively.

How efficient is the new system?

Today, air conditioner efficiency is measured by the Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) which indicates how effectively the AC system removes heat from air conditioned space. The government now requires that all AC units have a SEER rating of 13 or higher. Air conditioners with a higher SEER rating are more efficient, and that can lead to considerable savings on your utility bill.

How long will installation take?

If you’re purchasing a new system, you doubtless want the work completed as quickly as possible, especially if it’s being done in the summer! Depending on the project, installation may take several days, but when you work with Deljo we’ll explain the entire process and give you a reliable timeline for completion of the work.

What’s the total cost?

When it comes to a major investment like a new AC, you want to know exactly what you’re getting into. Our technician can explain the total cost breakdown, including the price of the system, labor costs and charges for extras such as air quality components and new thermostats. And don’t forget, Deljo offers a variety of finance options suitable for virtually any budget.

So, if you’re ready to take the plunge, not just for AC repair in Niles but for a new AC system, call Deljo today at 773-829-4295, and let’s get to work.
