Churning Up Customized Cooling Solutions

Air Conditioning


Satisfy Your Appetite for Home Comfort

When an AC unit breaks down in the middle of summertime, it’s a panic-filled situation for any homeowner. However, when an AC unit is on the fritz in a vintage home, the stress seems to be tenfold.

Thankfully, with American Vintage Home serving as your Older Home Experts, it doesn’t need to be. Our experts know the unique construction of older homes to serve up the best air conditioning replacements and air conditioning repairs in Oak Park, IL and beyond. So, before breaking into a sweat, turn to our team to customize your order and get the cooling solution you need.

What’s On the Menu?

Think, for a moment, about taking the family to the local ice cream shop. There are so many choices and everyone takes time to place an order—each of which is unique, down to the last topping. Similarly, choosing an air conditioner for your home requires careful consideration of your home comfort needs and your budget, so that you can order the perfect, just-for-you cooling solution. Thankfully, with us on your side, you can do just that.

Foundations First

Before you can build a tasty treat, you have to consider the age-old question: cup or cone? Of course, cups might allow room for plenty of toppings, but cones add a yummy crunch. Ultimately, this decision sets the tone for the rest of your order.

Likewise, before selecting the best cooling solution for you and your family, you’ll need to consider the type of AC unit that’s best for your vintage home. From central air units to ductless air conditioners to SpacePak or Unico, the American Vintage Home consultants will conduct a thorough analysis of your home and present you with a proposal that lists several options. From there, you’re one step closer to the chilled relief you crave.

Our comfort specialists are experts on all types of air conditioning units, including:

  • Ductless Air Conditioners. Homes with hot water heating systems need a unique approach to achieve consistent cooling comfort during the hottest months. If your home does not have ductwork or if you are adding new rooms to your home, ductless units give you control of your comfort, while offering a quiet operation, a noninvasive installation and more.
  • High-efficiency AC Units. For those who crave a whole-home cooling solution, look no further than a high-efficiency comfort system. The higher an AC unit’s SEER rating, the more energy-efficient it is. Working with your budget, the American Vintage Home specialists will guide you toward the right SEER rating for your home, which will efficiently cool every room in your house.
  • SpacePak and Unico. If you have a radiator-heated home and long to have central air conditioning, a SpacePak or Unico system is your answer. Not only do these systems provide outstanding comfort and financial savings, but they are specifically designed to fit within the framework of older homes—without compromising the unique architecture. Even more, at American Vintage Home, we are the largest installers in the country for both SpacePak and Unico air conditioning systems.
  • …And more!

Pick a Flavor

Now that you’ve selected a foundation, it’s time to perfect your order by selecting the best flavor. At American Vintage Home, our vast industry experience and expertise has taught us how to cater to each customer’s distinct preferences and needs.

So, our experts feed customers’ comfort cravings by presenting a range of AC units and brands.

  • Amana
  • American Standard
  • Armstrong Air
  • Bryant
  • Carrier
  • Goodman
