As anyone who’s lived through a humid Chicagoland summer can attest, air conditioning is a must for any home in the region. When the sweltering season picks up and mosquitos and heat waves drive you indoors, the last thing you want is to be sweating through your clothes and sticking to the couch as you suffer in your sauna of a home.
This is why it’s all-important to have a well-functioning air conditioning unit. But it’s not enough just get any old unit—it has to be effective, it has to be energy efficient, and it has to be properly taken care of.
Luckily for you, Gough Heating and Air Conditioning has been installing, maintaining, and repairing air-conditioning units in Rockford and the surrounding area for over half a century, so we have the expertise to guide you to through the process of ensuring your home is properly air conditioned.
We’re willing to bet that replacing your air conditioner isn’t something that crosses your mind very often. More often than not, by the time you’re thinking about your air conditioner, it’s because it’s already at the point of not working for you anymore, either due to something going wrong or the unit simply growing old and outdated.
In the event that you decide to replace your air conditioning unit, whether because it broke or because you just want to upgrade to a more efficient model, we’ve got you covered with a selection of top-quality units supplied by Ruud, a leader in the industry and winner of numerous awards including Consumer Report’s “Most Reliable Brand” in heating and cooling.
Ruud supplies us with a full selection of air conditioners, with models encompassing many price ranges, home sizes, power settings, and energy efficiencies. They include models with an SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating) ranging all the way from 13 to 20, so you have options for choosing a unit that will sufficiently cool your home but also keep you from paying too much on energy bills.
Installation is hassle-free: our certified technicians do all the work, and your new air conditioner is up and running within a day.
To keep your air conditioning unit operating at peak performance, you need to keep it well-maintained, just like any other piece of machinery. And who better to keep your air conditioner in working order than the very people who installed it in the first place?
Gough recommends maintenance visits to take place at least annually. During these visits, our technicians will inspect your system for issues, as well as perform any basic upkeep tasks that are necessary, such as refilling the refrigerant. These visits are our way of helping ensure that your cooling system serves you well for years to come.
Even with proper maintenance though, sometimes things can go wrong. When this happens, you need a qualified expert to take on the task, so that you know that the person handling the job knows what they’re doing and doesn’t inadvertently cause further damage. With decades of collective experience, our staff have extensive hands-on knowledge on how to resolve issues such as refrigerant leaks, drainage issues, electronic control failures, and sensor problems.
So if your old air conditioner isn’t doing so hot—or rather, if it’s too hot—don’t put yourself through the hassle and frustration of working on unfamiliar equipment in a sweaty environment. Let Gough lend you a hand and help you stay cool this summer.
