Forced air systems are popular in Glenview, Illinois

The summers in Glenview, Illinois are hot and muggy. The winters are freezing cold, snowy and windy. It’s partly cloudy year round and the average weather swings from the teens into the high eighties. It’s not unusual to experience sub zero conditions. Because of the weather extremes, heating is necessary and air conditioning is certainly an asset to the home. The most popular type of heating cooling system is a centralized forced air system. The combination of a furnace and air conditioner distribute heated and cooled air by way of ductwork. Modern options feature adaptable-speed technology that allows the compressor to automatically adjust to the demands of the home. The system can adjust in tiny one percent increments and by running longer, at a lower speed, maintains a more consistent indoor temperature. There are less concerns with excess humidity in the summer and insufficient humidity in the winter. The system has greater opportunity to filter contaminants out of the air and uses less energy. There are now furnaces that achieve 98% AFUE and 26 SEER levels. They are wonderfully environmentally friendly, keep running costs long and offer exceptional reliability. Today’s unit also accommodates zone control. This allows homeowners to customize temperature room-by-room. There is no need to heat or cool empty areas to the ideal temperature. Family members can cater temperature to their personal preference and respond to the various requirements of different rooms. There is the potential of energy losses due to holes and leaks in the ductwork, contaminant buildup within the heating/cooling system and wear and tear on components. For a forced air system, professional maintenance is highly recommended.
