It wasn’t long before the new owners of a condo in Streamwood, IL realized there was a problem: Their new home wasn’t nearly as cool as they wanted it in the summer. When we got there, we weren’t surprised at all to find out an old through-the-wall air conditioner wasn’t cutting it.
Now, the entire condo is always at the temperature they want. And, the new system is much quieter than the old one. But there’s more: Our homeowners also cut their electric bill in half. And, they managed to claim back some of their living space.
Problem: The hotel-style through-the-wall air conditioners in this Streamwood, IL condo did not provide enough cooling for the two bedrooms and main living area.
Solution: Installed a three-zone Hyper Heat outdoor unit with an indoor wall unit in each bedroom and a silver designer wall unit in the living room.
These setups are often referred to as “mini-splits” since they have indoor and outdoor components. Both these parts play essential roles in making these systems work so well.
Both use a refrigerant liquid that attracts heat to the system. Once that thermal energy reaches the AC, the unit releases it outside. At the same time, it dehumidifies the air. That makes your home much cooler.
How much less electricity? Put it this way: their electric bill got cut in half. That’s right: They spend 50 percent less on energy in the summer than what they used to.
And, since the mini-split is Energy Star seal of approval, they got a break on the installation costs. That came thanks to their electric provider, ComEd.
Like many utilities today, ComEd offers rebates to homeowners who install new energy-efficient appliances. We made sure these condos owners applied.
That, plus the lower energy bills, means our homeowners are paying less for cooling than ever before. And, their condo is the most comfortable it’s ever been!
