- Your system is 10 years old or older.
- Your energy bills are starting to go up.
- A repair costs more than half the cost of a new system.
- Your home is staying too humid.
- You’re on a first-name basis with the AC repair pros at Black Diamond because of frequent repairs.

AC Installation & Replacement
Accumulated heat stress will degrade air conditioning performance over time. When repair costs begin to rise, and indoor comfort is compromised, it may be time to consider an AC replacement. Homeowners with systems that are more than 10 years old may benefit considerably from the purchase of a new, efficient air conditioning system. In fact, replacing a 10 SEER air conditioning unit installed in the early 2000s with a modern 16 SEER system can save up to 60% on annual cooling costs.
When you’re looking to install a new cooling unit in your Illinois home or office, count on the experts at Black Diamond. Our professional technicians ensure that your unit is properly and safely installed so you can guarantee it will have a long and healthy life.

Preseason Tune-Ups & Maintenance Agreements
Regular service helps keep home cooling and heating equipment operating at peak efficiency. A maintenance agreement can expose minor problems before they can affect system performance. Our factory-trained and NATE-certified technicians visit the customer’s home or business on a seasonal basis and perform a variety of important AC services that can help lower monthly utility costs, extend the system’s life, and improve indoor comfort.
Routine maintenance is so important that it is a provision of every major manufacturer’s warranty coverage. For an introduction to the numerous benefits of preventative maintenance, we recommend a preseason tune-up, which provides many of the same services as a maintenance agreement without the long-term commitment.

Air Conditioning FAQs
Can AC be installed in any Chicago-area home?
What is the average life span of an AC unit?
Air conditioners last about 15 years, on average, with the right care. Investing in proper AC maintenance will help you extend the life span as long as possible.
What size air conditioner do I need?
Air conditioners need to be properly sized to cool your home appropriately. Proper sizing includes your home’s demand and the overall size of your home. An HVAC technician can help you determine the right size for your needs.
What is SEER?
Air conditioners are rated with a scale known as the Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating (SEER). This number tells how efficient the unit is. A higher SEER means a more efficient system.
How can I improve the efficiency of my AC?
To make your air conditioner run more efficiently, first open and uncover all air vents. Consider investing in a programmable thermostat, and don’t neglect maintenance checks.
