Central Air Conditioning Repair Burbank, IL

Most central air conditioners are connected to a home’s forced-air distribution system. Thus, the same motor, blower, and duct work used for heating are used to distribute cool air from the air conditioning system. When a central air conditioner is operating, hot air inside the house flows to the furnace through the return-air duct. The hot air is moved by the blower across the cooled evaporator coil in the plenum and is then delivered through ducts to cool the house. When the air conditioner works but the house doesn’t cool, especially during humid summer evenings, the problem is probably in the distribution system meaning high humidity, low air flow, dirty filter or evaporator coil, possibly a loss of freon charge. In Burbank, Illinois, there is only one name to turn to for your A/C tune-up or evaluation and that’s us here at Around The Town Heating and Air Conditioning.

Central Air Conditioning – Beware of the Free Offers

Central Air Conditioning Specials There are many heating and air conditioning companies that offer free furnaces with the purchase of a central air conditioning purchase. If you think about it, you will have to dig deep into your pockets to get that special. What I mean by that is; to receive such a great deal like that, you will have to buy the most energy-efficient central air conditioner on the market (ie 22 Seer 410A Two Stage). And with that 22 seer air conditioning system you have to change your furnace as well. The cost of such a unit is overwhelming. To be honest, the energy savings in the long run does not warrant such a high-end purchase.  Especially in the Chicago area.  Another way some companies get you is with a deal that you get the furnace for free but not the cost of installation.  The additional parts needed to install the …
