Just because HVAC equipment is old does not mean it’s time to replace it.  Thanks in large part to a Climatemp Service Group HVAC preventive maintenance program, many of our customers enjoy dependable heating and cooling in Chicago and surrounding areas from HVAC equipment that is many years beyond the average useful life.

There inevitably comes a time, however, when it is best to replace HVAC equipment with something new.  This can be when the equipment has surpassed its useful life, when it has been vandalized, or when it no longer adequately serves its purpose.  Some of our maintenance customers have also elected to proactively replace their older equipment with new units that use a more environmentally friendly refrigerant than the R-22 that many older units contain.

One Stop Shop

Climatemp Service Group maintenance customers enjoy our “one stop shop” for equipment replacement. Our Chicago mechanical contractors install virtually every make and model of HVAC equipment, always looking for the very best fit for our customers’ needs.

Because many of our customers don’t make such purchases frequently, they rely on us for advice on matters such as energy codes, municipal permits, and extended warranties.  We can perform equipment replacement projects on a “turnkey” basis, or can coordinate our installation team with our customer’s electrician, roofer, etc.

Our vendor partnerships deliver for our customers the best options regarding crane or helicopter lifts, equipment moving and demolition services.

Time to Pause

When it’s time to replace your HVAC equipment, a “like-for-like” solution may not be your best alternative.  Even if replacing equipment on an emergency basis, it is wise to pause to consider a load calculation, especially if the old unit wasn’t delivering the right amount of cooling or heating.  Perhaps it is a good time to explore ductwork modifications, or supply register upgrades.

This is also the most natural time to evaluate the controls.  If you’re making a capital expense, including new web-based controls may be the right move for you.  Is the electrical disconnect switch in good enough shape to last for many years to come?  Would a surge protector be a prudent addition to the project?  Maybe better economizer controls would improve comfort conditions in the spring and fall?  Trust the Chicago mechanical contractors at Climatemp Service Group to help you with these decisions.

Building Expansion or Re-purposing

For its HVAC preventive maintenance agreement customers, Climatemp Service Group will also design and install HVAC equipment for building additions or expansions.  Many of our customers have relied on us when they need to convert warehouse space to production areas, or to expand their office areas.
