Outside in the Snow

At Absolute Comfort in Crystal Lake, we’re always excited when a new year is approaching. We love to look back and think about all the people we’ve helped over the past 12 months, but what we love the most is looking forward to the future and thinking about everyone we’ll help over the next calendar year. If you’re looking for heating and cooling services in Algonquin, Huntley, Lake in the Hills, or the surrounding area, then give us a call today!

With the new year, you might be thinking about making some changes and upgrades to your home. Whenever you’re planning to remodel or repurpose a part (or all) of your house, it’s a good idea to have your HVAC systems checked, repaired, and potentially replaced.

Upgrades to the House

Any upgrade, such as new flooring or a new wall, can transform your home and make it both more functional and more comfortable. As you’re changing things, however, it’s important to note where the vents and registers are, and if the changes you’re making will impact your heating or cooling system.

Let’s say you’re completely remodeling the master bathroom — you’re going to change where the shower, tub, sink, and everything else is located. While that’s a great plan, you must ask yourself if your remodeling impacts where the vent is currently located, and if any ductwork needs to be moved in order to accommodate your new room layout and design. Our team can help with any project that involves your HVAC systems.

A New Furnace

Is it time for a new furnace? As you’re making upgrades to the house, you may notice the different sounds your furnace is making and how often it seems to be running. While your furnace may still adequately heat the house, it might be cycling on and off more frequently, or not shutting off at all, unless you manually turn it off. A new year can be a great time for a new furnace, even before the heating season is over.

A New Air Conditioner

Summer might seem far away, but as you’re remodeling and changing things, it’s important to think about how you use your home year-round. If you remember your living room or bedroom being warmer than other rooms during the summer and fall, when the temps are in the 70s, 80s, and 90s, then it might be time for a new air conditioner. We can inspect your central AC, make any necessary repairs, and recommend the best option for a new system.

Repurposing Rooms

Perhaps you don’t have grand plans for remodeling your home, but you are planning to repurpose some rooms in the new year. Maybe you’re turning that guest bedroom into an office, where you can work from home. If you’re going to be spending more time in a certain room, then it’s a good idea to make sure the ducts are clean and that the heating or air conditioning is keeping the space at a reasonable temperature. We can provide professional duct cleaning and HVAC tune-ups whenever you need them!
