Air Conditioning Installation in Chicago, IL

Since 1922, Deljo Heating & Cooling has been serving the needs of residential and commercial customers throughout the Chicagoland area. When we first opened our doors, air conditioning installations in Chicago, IL were all but nonexistent.

Since then, air conditioning systems have become a necessity across Chicago for homes and businesses alike. And the experience and expertise we’ve gained from a century in the business make Deljo the name to trust for air conditioner installations from Lincoln Park to Irving Park.

We’re dedicated to making sure your new installations and replacements go as smoothly as possible. To do so, we provide exceptional customer service from the moment you first call until your new AC unit is cooling your home.

Choosing The Right Size

Before we can begin any air conditioner install, we help customers decide what size AC they’ll need. Selecting a unit that’s too small will force the AC to overwork itself, which might cause it not to cool your space effectively.

Selecting an oversized AC can be just as problematic. Units that are too large are a waste of money, both because of the upfront costs and the related energy costs. Plus, oversized ACs will constantly cycle on and off to maintain a comfortable temperature. As a result, they won’t be able to effectively dehumidify your space while they cool it.

Whole-home and commercial air conditioning units are measured in tons. In this case, tons refers to the amount of heat they can remove from your home or business in an hour. A one-ton unit can remove 12,000 British thermal units (BTUs) in one hour while a three-ton unit would remove 36,000 BTUs in the same amount of time.

Obviously, the larger your home or business, the more cooling power you’ll need. For example, a 1,600 square foot home would probably need a 2 ½ ton unit to provide adequate cooling. However, it’s essential to remember that there are other variables to consider when deciding what sized air conditioner you’ll need.

Basements, for example, are naturally cooler than above ground areas and, therefore, require less cooling. Conversely, buildings with high ceilings and those that receive excessive amounts of sunlight require more. So while square footage can be a helpful gauge, it shouldn’t be the only metric you use when deciding what size AC unit you need.

Don’t worry, Deljo’s Chicago air conditioning experts can help you find the perfect sized air conditioner for your space and energy efficiency needs. With nearly a century of training and experience, we can precisely identify the needs of your space. Once we’ve determined your needs, we’ll provide you with options of ACs in the “goldilocks zone” that will fit your home’s needs and budget.

Our Installation Process

Once we’ve determined your cooling needs and selected a properly sized unit, we can get to work with your air conditioning installation in Chicago. Our NATE-certified technicians will work quickly and efficiently to get your new unit up and running before you know it.

The installation process is especially crucial if your home has never had central AC. We’ll need to retrofit your space with clean ductwork and wiring in addition to installing the air conditioner itself.

Rest assured, the cooling experts from Deljo can handle every facet of this critical part of the job to your complete satisfaction. As evidence of our expertise, Deljo is an 11-year Angie’s List Super Service Award Winner and has an A+ rating with the Best Business Bureau.
