On July 3rd the Department of Energy will begin to enforce a new standard for the HVAC industry related to conservation standards for residential furnace fans.  Fan Energy Rating, FER standards,  will take effect. Most, if not all, manufacturers will be required to make all furnaces with a furnace blower motor that uses less electricity to operate.

Rest assured if you live in Minooka, Channahon, Shorewood, Plainfield, Lockport, or Joliet Illinois. These areas are in AirMaxx Heating and Air Conditioning Services, Inc.’s core service area and we will be able to assist. If you live in these service areas and your air conditioner is old enough to consider replacement, it may be in your best interest to replace both your furnace and air conditioner at the same time. If you are repairing your air conditioner in Minooka IL and you are spending over $500 on repairing a 19-year-old air conditioner, it may be time to consider  both a new furnace and a new air conditioner. Ask AirMaxx, your trusted Minooka HVAC contractor for a quote on a new air conditioner and furnace before the new FER law takes effect.  Please be aware that the cost of furnaces made after July 3rd will be more due to these more efficient furnace blower motor.

Remember, furnaces and air conditioners, if registered properly after the installation, will come with a 10-year parts warranty at no additional cost to you. Make sure your air conditioning and heating contractor in Minooka IL does not try to sell you this FREE warranty at an additional cost. We have also found that some HVAC contractors in Minooka that have “No A/C service call fee” or “No A/C door charge” will simply increase their A/C repair charge to cover the free service call fee. A dishonest tactic that has been around for years. These same HVAC companies may also practice the false 15-year labor warranty on a new air conditioner installation in Minooka IL. There are currently two local HVAC companies that have sold or just closed their doors.   If you have a 15-year warranty that was not properly insured by a legitimate insurance underwriter then chances are you only have a 5-year parts warranty. Do your research before falling for the too good to be true, free, zero interest for 60 months, no service call fee air conditioner repair tactics by some of our competitors.

For truly free advice and support over the phone give AirMaxx a call. If you want to hire a company that invests in their HVAC technicians, requires that their technicians undergo year-round air conditioning and furnace training give AirMaxx a call. We do have a fee to come out and perform an air conditioning diagnostic in Minooka IL, however, when our A/C repair is authorized by the homeowner, our service fee is waived.

Honesty is not something that we say we are… It’s WHAT we are, to our core.
