AC Installation & Replacement in Joliet, IL

Do you know why it’s so important to have your AC install done by a pro? Well, first off, trained and experienced HVAC technicians have gone through years of on-the-job training to be able to successfully install all kinds of air conditioners effectively and reliably. Whether you have a central air conditioner or a ductless system, our technicians have what it takes to get the job done right the first time.

This includes removing your old system, if you have one, without impacting any connections, properly sizing your new air conditioner using something called a cooling load calculation, and ensuring that your new unit is properly matched up with the ductwork, electrical connections, and thermostat.

Central AC Installation

When it comes to selecting a new air conditioner for your Joliet area home, there are many factors to consider. First, of course, you want to know that your system is going to be powerful, and efficient. 

Today’s central air conditioners definitely tick both of those boxes, with options like inverter drive systems and variable fan speeds. Today’s models are also more efficient than those of even just a decade ago. 

Of course, for an accurate installation that you can count on, you’ll want to work with a qualified and experienced team, such as the technicians here at Comfort First Heating and Cooling, Inc.. 

Heat Pump Installation

A heat pump installation is very similar to that of a central air conditioner. That is, they work very similarly. Just like a central AC, a heat pump draws warm air from inside your house and expels it outside. Air is returned to your system and put through a refrigerant process in order to provide your living space with cooling. 

The difference between a heat pump and a central AC is that in a heat pump, the refrigerant process can be reversed so that the heat pump provides your home with heat too. And because they transfer heat instead of generating it, heat pumps are even more efficient than most furnaces! 

Ductless AC Installation

A ductless system takes the technology of a heat pump one step further. It provides heat and cooling like a standard heat pump, but as the name implies, it eliminates the need for ductwork. It also includes individual air handlers, which allow you to heat and cool each room you have an air handler installed in separately from the other rooms. 

The ductless AC installation setup provides not only space-saving and efficiency benefits, but it also eliminates potential indoor air quality problems that can arise due to dust and other debris circulating through the ducts and into your living space. 

This installation does require careful placement of the air handlers, which are typically wall-mounted. If done incorrectly or haphazardly, you could potentially experience a water or refrigerant leak behind an air handler, which would not only damage the system itself, but the drywall behind it. It’s important to work with an experienced team like ours!
