"My air conditioning failed during the hottest week of the summer, PDM replaced the next day. The job was well done, every thing was done with quality and the re-placement was completed in a day. Price of AC replacement was fair. The job site was clean and you would see no trace of replacement. Highly recommend PDM!" - Eric V.

Does My Air Conditioning Unit Need Replacing?

We are often asked should I repair or replace? As a general rule of thumb, a central air conditioning system can be ripe for replacement if it’s 10-15 years old.

HVAC maintenance as well as how the AC system was installed and repaired affect the life of the system. Keep in mind that any of these repair “signs” could also point toward needing a new unit:

  • Utility bills increasing?
  • AC making a noise?
  • Uneven cooling or not meeting your cooling needs?
  • Unit icing up?
  • Water leaks?
  • Oily compressor?
  • Thermostat temperature not accurate?
  • Simply time to upgrade for added comfort and savings?

An experienced PDM technician will evaluate your heating and cooling system and offer free replacement options.

What Are Central Air Conditioning Replacement Costs Near Joliet, IL

AC replacement costs can range from $3,500 to $10,000. For a split system your ac unit includes two components, an outside condensing unit, fan and an evaporator coil sitting on top of your furnace. We use the existing air handler and ducts. 

Consumer Reports says finding a contractor you can trust is the most important decision you can make.

Please understand a central AC replacement unit is only as good as the installation work done. We’ve seen how a great contractor can install a poor AC, and he will often stand behind it if it fails. Likewise a poor contractor can royally screw up a perfect AC, and will leave you abandoned to fend for yourself.

Beware. Cutting corners for a lower air conditioning replacement cost is easy for a contractor and you may never know.


What Factors Affect The Air Conditioning Replacement Cost?

  1. Compressor. We begin with three types of compressors which circulates the refrigerant through the rest of the system to remove heat from the inside of your place. Your choices are:
    1. Single stage compressor is the least costly investment. The biggest disadvantage of a single stage compressor is its inefficiency. Most single stage units use short cycles, so they turn on and off many times throughout the day.
    2. Two stage compressor is more efficient, runs cooler and delivers better airflow than a single-stage replacement. The AC compressor runs on 65 percent cooling capacity most of the time and 100 percent when needed for hot days and can save up to 25 percent on your cooling electric bill.
    3. Continuous variable capacity modulating compressor. A unique way to modulate the capacity of the compressor from 10 to 100 percent so that the coolness produced matches the changing cooling requirements, and it does this without changing the speed of the motor. Quietest and most efficient unit, best at removing humidity with the most balanced room temperatures. Can reduce annual energy consumption by as much as 30-40 percent. A great system if you have a lot of traffic in and out of your home or business or like colder indoor temperatures. Learn more on compressor modulation. 
  2. Blower motor fan circulates air throughout your place. You have three to choose from:
    1. Constant speed blower motor. Standard, low cost choice. You have no control over the blower motor as it will run at a fixed speed resulting in over or under temperature swings.
    2. Multi-speed blower motor. Better comfort choice. This option allows the AC installer to set the fan speed but does not change during operation. It provides more or less airflow as needed.
    3. Variable speed blower motor is your best energy saving and comfort choice. The high efficient electronically commutated motor (ECM) gives you multi-speeds. By changing the speed of airflow during start-up, your ac-furnace can adjust humidity levels and create more even temperatures throughout your home. The ECM uses significantly less electricity (save 33 percent or more) than a standard blower motor and reduces operating noise. Variable speed blowers can also remove up to four times more humidity in the summer than a standard blower, increasing your ac efficiency. And if you run the fan only you get a quiet, low speed fan to filter air and keep temperatures even.
  3. Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating (SEER) determines how efficiently the equipment operates, like miles per gallon for a car. You’ll choose a 13 to 24+ SEER air conditioning unit.
  4. Size of your home or business, number of people and how well it is insulated determine AC unit size.
  5. Thermostat controls over 50 percent of your utility bill. Your HVAC thermostat choices are:
    1. Digital non-programmable manual thermostat is your most basic option. Allows you to turn on the heating or cooling system, set the temperature, and operate the system fan.
    2. Programmable thermostat. EPA says consumers can save from 10 to 30% on the space heating and cooling portion of their energy bills.
    3. Smart WiFi thermostat learns a household's patterns and automatically adjusts heating and cooling according to when a home is occupied or is about to be occupied. Control from your smart phone or computer.
  6. Lastly, the location/accessibility of the indoor evaporator coil and outdoor condenser unit, any duct work modifications, electrical safety upgrade, warranty and any customization work needed.
  7. Improve your indoor air quality with true healthy upgrades.
    1. Whole home humidifier improves your immune system and indoor comfort while lowering heating bills.
    2. Air purifier connects to your furnace to kill viruses, bacteria, allergens, odors and more. Breathe easier.
    3. Media air cleaner - 5" thick media filters are at least seven times better than a standard filter at removing dust and other particles.
  8. Many clients also upgrade their older water heater with a high efficiency tank or tankless. A perfect time to change. And we’ll inspect your sump pump and water softener for safe operation too.

"Great service, innovative installation! 

PDM did a great job of installing my new split system (furnace and air conditioning unit). My house is limestone and concrete making it very difficult to work on and to make modifications. Chris did a great job with the design of the installation and integration of the new system into the design of the home. We are very happy with how the system does not stand out from the exterior of the house, it blends in nicely! Installation was challenging because my walls are 6” mix of limestone and stucco/concrete, but Chris was able to overcome the challenges with very good results! Since installing the system this is the first time my old stone house was truly warm." -- Eric V.
