There’s No Need to Hunt for Whole-Home Comfort

This time of year is a celebration of rebirth and new beginnings (and chocolate bunnies, of course). In honor of just that, our team at American Vintage Home is here to help you start fresh and make smarter decisions regarding your home—so that you can avoid hunting for whole-home comfort when you need it most.

Comfort’s in Full Bloom

At American Vintage Home, we believe that you shouldn’t need to crack any difficult clues to enjoy the peace of mind that comes with knowing you have a reliable HVAC system. It’s something that every homeowner wants and deserves—and we’re happy to help deliver it.

To that end, here are a few simple steps that you can take in your own home, as well as some tasks that our experts are more than happy to assist with:

  • Start with “egg”stensive spring maintenance. Since the season’s warm temperatures haven’t fully rolled in yet, now is the perfect time to perform some preventive maintenance. While it’s not the most “egg”citing task, it is the best way to ensure that you stay cool and comfortable this season and beyond. To start, clean or swap out your air filter. Of course, since there are several types of filters, refer to your manufacturer’s manual to see what kind your unit has, as well as where it is located. Next, clear away any shrubs, leaves or debris from around your AC unit to help avoid undue stress and untimely breakdowns. Last, but certainly not least, schedule a professional inspection and cleaning with our American Vintage Home team. We’ll optimize your system with a thorough tune-up and safety check to help you save both energy and money.
  • Hop on over to your thermostat. Thermostats are often overlooked, but they play a very important role in keeping you comfortable. So, use this time to double-check that yours is working properly and that it’s ready to crank up the cool. To do so, set the thermostat at least five degrees lower than your normal setting during cooling season, and then check that your HVAC unit kicks on. If not, change out the batteries right away. And if that still doesn’t solve the problem, contact our American Vintage Home experts.
  • Bunnies and baskets and… leaks? Candies and chocolates are a sweet addition to any spring day. Leaks, on the other hand, are never a welcomed surprise. Take some time to perform a visual inspection of your home, being sure to identify any dripping faucets or leaky pipes. Not only can these plumbing issues become costly headaches, but they can also cause water damage and make your home more prone to mildew and mold! So, by checking for leaks, you can avoid an expensive (and messy) sewer line repair in Oak Park, IL and the surrounding areas. Plus, it’s a great way to keep your home free of spring allergens!
  • Upgrade to something more “egg”cellent. Hot weather hasn’t arrived in the Chicago North Shore area just yet—but it’s coming. And just like you’d never want to be without your heating unit during our frigid winter months, you’d hate to break out in a sweat during the first heat wave due to an inefficient air conditioner. So, if your comfort system is on its last legs and you’re uncertain if it’s up for another season of everyday use, now’s the time to consider a replacement. And with American Vintage Home on your side, choosing a new system does not need to feel like an overwhelming process. Our experts are available to walk you through an upgrade that improves your cooling comfort and efficiency. From high-efficiency central air conditioners and multi-zone systems to SpacePack® AC and Unico® AC, our comfort specialists have the experience and “egg”spertise to help you choose the best solution for your family and to install it correctly.
