Before contacting Elite
for furnace repair
in the Carol Stream
area, go through the basics. Make sure you don’t have a dead thermostat
or a tripped breaker. Then, put in a new air filter
and make sure you have the system set correctly. If none of these things are to blame, reach out to us
for a furnace diagnostics check
You'd be amazed how many HVAC problems are caused by someone forgetting to change their air filter
. If you use a 1-inch disposable filter, we suggest replacing those monthly. For people with a 4-inch media filter, two changes a year is often enough.
The cost of your AC repair
depends on many factors that are rarely, if ever, the same. Because we need to do an onsite assessment, we cannot provide quotes over the phone. Call us

While the lifespan of a new AC unit
varies based on make and model, most will last between 10 and 15 years. Some systems not subject to heavy, constant use can last over 20 years if properly maintained. That doesn’t mean, however, that you should wait for it to break. Old units are often inefficient and expensive to repair. Being proactive about AC replacement
is a great way to save money on your utility bills.
In the Carol Stream
area, we recommend getting your HVAC equipment
serviced before the start of each season. In other words, AC maintenance
should be done at the beginning of spring, while furnace tune-ups
are best done in the fall.
You'll want to start by finding out when your unit was produced. There's usually a visible production plate on the machine—the placement of it varies by brand and model. Once you have that, look up the manufacturer's warranty and see if yours falls within eligible dates. Note that some HVAC companies offer their own no-lemon and installation guarantees that go beyond what the factory offers.
