Why Is My AC Running But Not Cooling?

Your AC may struggle to cool due to issues like clogged air filters, low refrigerant levels or system wear and tear. Regularly replacing air filters is crucial for maintaining cooling efficiency. Inspect your unit for refrigerant leaks, as low refrigerant levels can impact cooling effectiveness.

Additionally, consider the age and condition of your AC unit, and schedule regular system maintenance with our HVAC experts to ensure peak system performance.

How Do I Check My House For Toxins?

To check your house for toxins, start by identifying potential sources such as mold, radon or lead-based paint. Conduct regular inspections for water leaks, ensure proper ventilation and consider professional indoor air quality (IAQ) testing for specific toxins.

If you have concerns, consulting with the experts at G & R can provide tailored guidance to create a healthier indoor space.

Is There A Downside To Smart Thermostats?

While smart thermostats offer energy efficiency and convenience, potential downsides include initial costs and compatibility issues with older HVAC systems. You can be confident that many smart thermostat brands prioritize security features.

It’s essential to research compatibility, weigh costs against long-term savings and customize privacy settings to address any reservations about using smart technology in your home. Our team is ready to walk you through the thermostat upgrade process!

What Is The Life Expectancy Of A Boiler?

The life expectancy of a boiler can vary, but well-maintained systems typically last 15 to 20 years. Factors influencing longevity include regular maintenance, water quality and the boiler’s initial quality. Investing in professional boiler inspections from our team and timely repairs can extend the lifespan of your system, ensuring reliable heating for your Illinois home.

Do Heat Pumps Use A Lot Of Electricity?

Heat pumps are generally energy-efficient, using electricity to move heat rather than generating it. While they can be more cost-effective than traditional heating systems, the electricity consumption depends on factors like climate, system size and insulation.

Properly sized and well-maintained heat pumps can provide efficient heating and cooling, helping homeowners manage electricity usage effectively. Our team is ready to help you with your heat pump installation and seasonal maintenance. Reach out to get started today!

Our service tech Adam was outstanding. He found the problem before the CO2 detectors did. Gave estimates to repair or replace the old furnace at competitive prices. We've used this company for a few years now and plan to stay with them in the future.
