New Air Conditioner Installation & AC System Replacement
We specialize in air conditioning system replacements and new air conditioners. We provide homeowners with high efficiency and Energy Star rated AC systems in the Northern Illinois area.
Whether your old air conditioning system is in need of major expensive repairs, simply costing you too much in energy expenses to operate, or you want to take advantage of the thousands of dollars available to you through various rebates for new AC systems, One Hour Air Conditioning specializes in working with homeowners to design a new central air conditioning system that fits your home and your budget.
Our expert home comfort specialists will perform engineering calculations to make sure that your new high efficiency air conditioner will be large enough to keep your home cool on the hottest days of the year. Equally as important, they’ll make sure your new central AC system is not oversized – oversized air conditioners are, unfortunately very common. Oversized central air conditioning systems waste precious energy dollars, lead to decreased comfort, higher equipment failure rates and a shortened lifespan of the A/C system.
A new high efficiency air conditioning system installed today should last at least 15 years. That’s why, part of One Hour’s thorough process is centered around the most important part of the project – YOU! Our friendly and experienced comfort specialists know central AC systems inside and out! Once they have calculated your home’s cooling requirements, they’ll take the time to discuss your likes and dislikes with your current air conditioning system, what features and benefits you would like to add to your cooling system, understand how you and your family use your system, discuss new products and technology with you and make sure that you get the best air conditioning system for your needs and your home.
Let’s face it, with literally hundreds of products on the market today, the process of selecting a new air conditioner can be quite confusing to the average homeowner. We’re here to help. We want to make sure that you make the right choice and are happy with your decision – after all, when we’re done working together you will have made a decision that will impact your home’s comfort and your energy usage for the next 15 years!

We only use the best products! A core philosophy at One Hour Heating & Air is that there are three major critical components to a high quality and long lasting air conditioning system, quality products, quality installation and quality design. When evaluating products that we recommend to homeowners, we are very thorough. Often, a product will be installed at our facility or in one of our homes long before we offer it to a customer. Why? We want to be sure that we’re recommending only the best to you and your family.
The difference is in the installation! Having a new air conditioning system installed is much different than nearly every purchase that a homeowner will make for their home. The parts are shipped to us from our distributors, loaded onto our trucks and then assembled in your home. You will often hear a One Hour employee say “The most important day in an air conditioner’s life is its first day.” This is because it is critical that thorough and precise installation procedures are followed. Even the highest quality products must be assembled and installed properly in order to maximize energy savings, enhance system performance and ensure years of trouble free comfort.
How much “air” do we need? The third major critical component to a high quality and long lasting air conditioning system is the first step, system design – what size air conditioner do we need? Our friendly and experienced comfort specialists evaluate your home and perform engineering calculations to determine the proper sized air conditioner for your home. Factors include the age of the home, insulation levels, window quantity and quality, size of the home, orientation of the home, ceiling height and many, many more. It is not uncommon for two homes that appear nearly identical in the same neighborhood to have different cooling requirements, we see it frequently. That’s why we never “guess or assume” what size air conditioning system is right for your home. Our goal is to provide an energy efficient air conditioning system that maximizes your comfort and minimizes your energy usage. That’s why each new AC system that we install is custom designed for you and your home.
Air Conditioning System Replacements:
Many homeowners have never had the opportunity to select the air conditioning system in their home. When they bought the home, it was either the one that the builder chose for them – we’re all familiar with the term “builder’s grade”! Or perhaps the AC system is one that the prior homeowner chose. Today’s new high efficiency air conditioning systems have enhanced technology and control capabilities to provide optimal comfort while decreasing your energy bills! Another popular feature of modern high efficiency air conditioning systems among homeowners is that they operate significantly quieter than old AC systems. Call 815-758-8484 to have a One Hour’s comfort specialist visit your home and discuss potential solutions for your home.
Multi-Stage Air Conditioner Replacements:
Another great technological improvement seen in new high efficiency air conditioners is multi-stage technology. While it may sound complicated, it is a quite simple concept. New high efficiency air conditioning systems are capable of operating at two capacities, one for operation during the hottest summer days, and one for less hot and humid days where you still use your conditioner but don’t need the full capacity of the system. It’s like having two air conditioners in one! The benefits are increased comfort by using the proper capacity for the current demand and decreased energy usage when the system is operating at its lower capacity.
