Choosing the Right Air Conditioner
What Size AC Do I Need?
Before we begin any air conditioner installation, we help customers decide what size AC they’ll need. Selecting a unit that’s too small will overwork the AC, which will ultimately fail to keep you cool. And units that are too large waste your money via higher upfront costs and higher energy costs. So if you’re replacing an old air conditioner, think about how well it kept you cool.
If it struggled to maintain a comfortable temperature, we’ll help you find a more powerful replacement. If your old model kept you cool but left your space overly humid, you may want to replace it with a smaller model.
And if your old unit worked perfectly (until it didn’t), we’ll help you find a similar model. But if you were happy with your old AC, consider repairing it before buying a new unit. Schedule an appointment with us for air conditioning repair and we’ll send a technician out to diagnose your issues. By doing so, we may be able to save you the cost of replacing your unit.

What Style of AC Do I Need?
For homeowners in Chicago, central air conditioning often makes the most sense. However, ductless mini-split systems open up a world of possibilities, allowing you to maintain different temperatures in different areas of your home. Whatever your needs, we’ll help you find the perfect system to keep you comfortable.
Central Air Conditioning
Ideal for single-family homes, central air conditioning systems allow you to control the climate throughout your home from a single control panel. These systems typically include an indoor air conditioning unit that’s often placed in an attic or basement and an outdoor unit that’s often placed on the ground adjacent to the home or on a flat roof.
The indoor ac unit cools warm air from outside and pushes it through ducts installed throughout your home. The outdoor unit allows the system to expel the excess heat outside.
Central ACs tend to have lower upfront costs than other whole-home systems. But that’s only the case for homes that already have ductwork in place. A ductless system might be a better option if your home lacks ducts for heating or air conditioning.
Homeowners looking to install air conditioning for the first time in their home might consider a mini-split system instead of a traditional central AC. These systems include multiple indoor units, allowing you to cool different “zones” in your home independently of one another. And, like all air conditioners, they also feature an outdoor unit to allow the warm air an escape.
Although these systems tend to be more expensive upfront, they’re also more energy efficient than central ACs. Mini-splits cool your space from within each climate zone rather than pumping cool air throughout the home from a central location. Thus, they don’t waste energy cooling the ducts in your home.
Plus, by maintaining distinct climate zones, mini-splits can restrict cooling to the areas of your home that need it. Why pay to cool your guest room when it’s empty?
We should also note that mini-split systems keep you comfortable year-round with both heating and cooling capabilities. So if you’re building a new home or replacing your heating and air conditioning systems, mini-splits allow you to save money on utilities from January through December.
With 100 years of residential and commercial comfort experience to our name, our team 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.
Why settle for anything less than the best when your comfort is on the line? Call us today at 773-829-4295 for a free estimate.
Working with Deljo
Once we’ve determined your cooling needs and selected a properly sized unit, we can get to work installing the AC in your Chicago home. Our NATE-certified technicians will work quickly and efficiently to get your new unit up and running before you know it.
For most homes, the installation process takes less than a single day. However, if you have an especially large home or we need to retrofit your space with new ductwork or wiring, the process may carry over into a second day. Residential AC installs rarely take longer than two days, but we’re more concerned with getting the job done right than beating the clock.
Our technicians perform more than 100 distinct steps for every AC install in Chicago to ensure that the systems we install work as efficiently as possible. Although other companies might get the job done faster, they cut corners to do so. So that speedy install almost always ends up taking more time in the long run because of the need for additional service calls.
When you work with Deljo, you know that customer service is always our top priority. We’ve kept our doors open for over 100 years by providing quality service to each and every customer. Our goal is to earn your business for life. So whether you need air conditioning service or some other HVAC service, know that we’ll always go above and beyond to keep you comfortable.
