Are you thinking about replacing your air conditioner? Then it can be helpful to take a look at these before and after photos of a recent AC installation in Crystal Lake.


Reasons to Replace Your Air Conditioner


Generally speaking, an air conditioner lasts between 10 and 15 years. However, age isn’t the only reason to replace your AC:


  • If your AC is corroded. It’s oftentimes more cost-effective to replace the entire unit instead of one or two corroded parts.
  • If your air conditioner isn’t energy-efficient. The newer an AC, the more energy-efficient it will be, which places a lower strain on the environment and keeps your energy bills low.
  • If the AC is noisy. Especially when the unit is placed close to a window, an older appliance can be a source of unpleasant noise pollution.


As you can see in the before image, the AC condenser we replaced for this customer was very corroded. In addition, the filter was grimy, delivering a lower air quality. We replaced it with a brand new, energy-efficient air conditioner that hooked up perfectly to the power source while still allowing enough room to maneuver during maintenance and repairs.

Replacing your AC has a number of important benefits, including improved cooling, enhanced air quality, increased energy-efficiency, lower energy bills and less noise pollution. However, it’s important to realize that you will enjoy the most benefits if you have a professional HVAC technician help you select your new air conditioner, as well as install it for you. Though there are many articles on the Internet that aim to educate homeowners about choosing the right AC and doing a DIY installation, the truth is that a professional HVAC specialist will know about more options and consider more factors when advising you on the right kind of AC for your home. Moreover, a professional installation comes with a warranty on labor and parts, so in the event you need any adjustments or repairs, you’re not out any more money.
