8 years ago, I bought my house in Orland park, Illinois, and I updated the heating and air conditioning system. The equipment that was in the house was inefficient, old, and falling apart. I wanted to start off my time in the house with a brand new heating and air conditioning system. It was the middle of May when I bought the house and it was already starting to get warm in Orland park. I contacted several contractors and a few residential HVAC companies in Orland Park so I could get different estimates for the work I needed to get done in the house. In addition to updating the heating and air conditioning system, I felt certain that I was going to need ducting work or repairs as well. None of the technicians ever mentioned ductless heating or cooling to me and I spent a fortune on the new ductwork and the equipment. This year I had to replace the air conditioning system again. The service technician from the company that I regularly use suggested going with a ductless mini split system instead. The Orland Park heating and AC repair technician told me about ductless mini split systems and how they could help me with energy efficiency in my home. I was really intrigued by the system, but I decided to go with a central heat pump and Air conditioner. The rates for the equipment were much higher than they were 8 years ago. It’s clear that the prices on everything are getting higher due to inflation.
