Nothing’s better than walking through your front door and getting hit by a blast of cold air on a hot summer’s day. Ravinia Plumbing’s HVAC contractors offer a full range of cooling services to keep your HVAC system operating efficiently and reliably throughout the hot months. Our cooling services include:
Air conditioners can last about 15-20 years, but only if regular maintenance is performed. You should schedule an AC tune-up once per year, preferably in the spring before the arrival of warmer weather. During a maintenance visit, your technician will clean the necessary components and ensure the unit operates safely. They can also catch minor issues before leading to more extensive, expensive repairs.
Speaking of AC repair, it’s essential to have any issues checked out by an HVAC technician as soon as possible to limit the damage. Some common air conditioning repairs Ravinia Plumbing performs include refrigerant leaks, clogged condensate drain lines, failing blower motors, and bad capacitors.
Although we want to put off buying a new air conditioner for as long as possible, like all mechanical devices, air conditioners have a shelf life. If your system is older, inefficient, or breaking down frequently, it’s time to consider air conditioner replacement services.
A ductless mini split heat pump system differs from a traditional HVAC system because it can provide heating and cooling for year-round comfort. Ductless mini splits consist of an outdoor unit and multiple indoor air handling units installed throughout different rooms in your home. Each air handler is controlled separately by its thermostat, allowing you to create temperature zones across your home.
A reliable heating system is necessary during the chilly, snowy Evanston, IL, winters. The technicians at Ravinia Plumbing can provide the following HVAC services for your heating system.
Annual furnace maintenance in the fall before winter can help your unit run more efficiently and prevent untimely breakdowns on the year’s coldest days. Yearly maintenance will help your furnace last 15-20 years.
Just because your furnace breaks down doesn’t mean it needs to be replaced. Often, a simple furnace repair can get your unit back up and running again, especially for younger systems without a history of repairs.
All furnaces have an expiration date. Even if your furnace is hanging on by a thread, it is likely inefficient and causes high energy costs. If your unit is over the age of 15, breaking down frequently, or heating your home unevenly, it’s time to consider furnace replacement services. Contact Ravinia Plumbing to schedule service.
Ravinia Plumbing also offers maintenance, repair, and installation service for boilers and radiators, ductless mini splits, and radiant heating systems.
