Air Conditioning Repair & Cooling for Naperville (IL): Changes to Know About

HVAC industry science has continued its advances in making home air conditioning better, safer and more sustainable. At the same time, because of their emissions and use of electricity, central air conditioning units are federally regulated to limit their impact on energy consumption and the environment.

The efficiency of your AC unit is measured by its seasonal energy efficiency ratio (SEER), which is a number system that identifies the unit’s ability to maintain comfortable temperatures while using less energy. Starting in January 2023, the U.S. Department of Energy officially raised their minimum efficiency standards for AC units.

Before the change, the minimum rating for cooling systems in Naperville had been SEER 13 since 2006. As of 2023, the required minimum rating is SEER2 13.4. Naperville residents can still use an existing SEER 13 AC unit or install one made before 2023, but any unit manufactured from now on has to meet the updated standards.

In addition to central air conditioning units in Naperville, the new standards apply to:

heat pumps and furnaces

evaporator coils

single-packaged products

HVAC parts and components

What this all means for you is that the costs of AC repairs and installs have adjusted – in many cases, you’ll be spending more. This is why it’s important to work with an HVAC contractor that can provide you with accurate information and explain your best options for installing a new system or repairing an existing one.

Cost Considerations for AC Repair & Cooling in Naperville (IL)

As we just touched on, you’ll want to be alert to the costs and advantages between an AC repair and an install of a new SEER2 AC unit. In some cases, it may be wise to continue investing in AC repairs of your current cooling system. In others, you might be ready for the new technology.

As the HVAC science continues evolving, some refrigerants and components may eventually become obsolete or harder to locate. If your cooling system is getting up in years, and your air conditioning repairs start getting more costly and the parts more challenging to replace, you will be in a good position to switch to a new SEER2 unit.

Beyond installing an AC unit for a new home or replacing a failing one in 2023, the following are a few reasons you might now consider investing in an air conditioner with a SEER2 13.4 or higher:

Your AC still uses the ozone-depleting refrigerant R-22, which is discontinued and very expensive to acquire if it can even be located.

Your system is older than 12 years and uses the ozone-friendly refrigerant R-410A (Puron), which is being phased out.

Your AC unit uses R-410A and is under 12 years old but has an air conditioning repair that will cost $500 or more.

Naperville (IL) Air Conditioning Repair & Cooling: Service and Financing

As HVAC manufacturers increase their prices to reflect costs of parts and equipment, raw materials, and fuel and transportation, homeowners in Naperville will still need their cooling systems. Like gasoline at the pump, AC is not something many of us can just choose to do without.

Reasons You Might Call for Naperville (IL) Air Conditioning Repair

We spend a lot of time in the field serving our Naperville-area customers, so we get a pretty good look at what causes an AC system to need a repair.

Based on our experience, the following are several frequent reasons that customers call us for an air conditioning repair or extra system maintenance.

Clogged condensate drain. Channels that are clogged will prevent the air conditioner from reducing indoor humidity. In addition to creating a humidity imbalance, the excess moisture can discolor carpet and walls.

Refrigerant leaks. Your AC unit relies on a coolant to cycle and disperse both cool and warm air. If the coolant level begins to fall short, it’s often because of a leak. Correcting a leak is important for your comfort as well as environmental safety.

Compressor failure. Located in your outside AC unit, the compressor circulates the refrigerant needed for heat exchange through the coils of the indoor and outdoor cooling system components. It also applies energy to the refrigerant. A failing compressor will show signs such as no cool air inside, loud noises and “hard” starts.

Fan-motor failure. Air conditioners use two fans: the blower fan inside and a fan in the outdoor AC unit that helps release hot air to the outside. If either fan fails, it will interrupt the heat-exchange cycle required for proper home cooling. If the fan motor for the outdoor unit starts to malfunction, it will affect the condenser and develop symptoms such as reduced airflow and no cooled air.

Because home cooling includes interdependent wires and parts for using the power it draws, electrical issues can be another common cause of improper operation. For example, fan controls and the compressor can wear out if the air conditioning unit frequently cycles as it will when it’s oversized for the Naperville home being cooled.

Naperville (IL): Interesting Quick Facts

What would become Naperville began when Joseph Naper arrived with his family and friends to the west bank of the DuPage River in July 1831. Their landing followed nearly two months of travel across three Great Lakes. They named their new home Naper’s Settlement, and by 1832, more than one hundred other settlers had joined them. Naper’s Settlement was incorporated as the village of Naperville in 1857 with a population of 2,000.
