My wife and I have had the same AC unit in the living room for the past 15 years.
It works well when it wants to, and that is becoming a real pain.
My daughter and her two kids came for a visit last summer and they stayed in the living room. It was incredibly hot and uncomfortable and they only stayed one day instead of two. I didn’t want the same problem happening again this year, so I decided to contact an AC repair service in Orland Park. I got an estimate for the installation of a brand new AC unit. The Orland Park company recommended a ductless AC unit instead of a traditional window unit. The price tag was a lot higher, but the machine was more energy efficient with a longer lifetime. After discussing the pros and cons with my wife, we decided to choose the ductless mini-split AC unit. We selected a unit that also includes heat, so we can use the equipment during the summer and the winter months. The fact that the machine had the capability to heat and cool made it a much better investment for my home. The Orland Park summer temperatures are only hot a few days every year, but the cold temperatures are here for months. It will be nice to have a radiant heater in the living room next winter when the outdoor temperatures are 10 degrees below zero. Last year there were a couple of days when we didn’t spend any time in the living room, because it was just too cold. The room has always been a little drafty.
