Our team provides expert AC repair in Des Plaines for all types of cooling issues. We have emergency services available 24/7 to get your system running again quickly when you have no air flow on hot, humid days.

As a Carrier Factory Authorized Dealer, we have access to manufacturer diagnostic tools and OEM parts critical for proper operation and longevity of your air conditioner. We offer affordable solutions to keep you comfortable until it’s time to replace very old AC systems no longer worth repairing. Call us anytime you need fast, professional AC service.

Compressor Repair

The compressor is the heart of an air conditioning system. When it fails, the entire cooling process shuts down. Our technicians in Des Plaines provide expert diagnosis and replacement services to get your AC running again.
We troubleshoot compressor issues like failed start capacitors, burned out windings, broken valves, and refrigerant leaks.

Where repair is possible, we handle tasks like condenser and evaporator coil cleaning, refrigerant recharge, thermostat calibration, and wiring inspections. For older units with extensive damage, we replace the compressor, calibrate the controls, test for leaks, and monitor operation.

AC Fan Belt Replacement

Over time, the fan belt stretching across your AC’s blower motor and compressor pulleys can wear out. A loose, cracked, or broken belt reduces airflow keeping your home cool. Our technicians offer quick, affordable fan belt replacement in Des Plaines.

We perform a thorough inspection of your air conditioner components like the blower motor, condenser fan, evaporator coils, refrigerant lines, thermostat, and duct connections when replacing old belts. Other repairs like cleaning dirty coils, sealing duct leaks, or replacing capacitors and controls may be required as well. Proper belt tension and alignment extends the life of your AC.

Blower Motor Replacement

If your AC unit turns on but you get little to no air flowing from the vents, the blower motor may be worn out. Our AC technicians provide expert blower motor testing and replacement in Des Plaines. We troubleshoot electrical and mechanical issues preventing proper operation.

Repairing or replacing a broken blower motor often requires checking related components too. Our team performs checks on the fan belt, condenser unit, duct connections, thermostat, capacitors and other electrical controls. We may also clean dirty evaporator coils, replace worn out air filters, recharge refrigerant, or seal duct leaks. Our work leaves your system running efficiently.

ABC Plumbing, Sewer, Heating, Cooling and Electric provides 24/7 emergency AC repair services to Des Plaines residents when breakdowns occur at the worst times.

AC Installation Service

If your current air conditioner is over 10 years old or no longer keeping up during heat waves, replacement may be your best option. As an authorized Carrier dealer, our Des Plaines team focuses on installing new, highly efficient systems correctly sized for your home. We evaluate factors like square footage, window area, insulation rating, sun exposure, and building materials to right-size your new AC system.

Proper sizing coupled with our expertise in positioning components allows your new air conditioner to operate at peak efficiency. We offer highly rated single stage, two stage, and variable models from leading brands providing the best comfort and energy savings.

Our installers are fully certified to handle ductwork, electrical and gasoline connections meeting all codes and manufacturer specifications. We also remove and dispose of old AC equipment properly.

AC Maintenance Service

Regular maintenance is crucial for efficient operation and longevity of air conditioning systems. Our Des Plaines team offers comprehensive AC tune-ups and repair services customized for both home owners and property management companies. We tailor maintenance plans for all makes and models of equipment with options for annual, semi-annual or quarterly visits.

During scheduled appointments, our NATE-certified technicians perform multi-point inspections and over a dozen routine service tasks like cleaning, adjustment, lubrication and testing. Your AC runs better and lasts longer with our preventative maintenance.

Plus, we diagnose small issues before they become big, expensive breakdowns requiring unplanned repairs down the road. Well-maintained units also have fewer emergency calls during hot weather.

As a Carrier dealer, our Des Plaines team handles mini-split system installation, maintenance and repair services to keep your units running at peak efficiency. We offer single-zone systems for one area up to multi-zone configurations handling up to 8 rooms.

Our experts help determine the appropriately sized unit and positioning for optimal temperature control and energy efficiency. We install new mini-split heat pumps properly evacuated and charged with refrigerant.

For maintenance, we check performance plus clean filters, drainage and key components. We have 24/7 repair services available for problems like failed compressors or defective control boards as well.

Indoor Air Quality Service

Indoor air quality issues like dust and mold contribute to respiratory problems and allergies. Our Des Plaines team offers air duct cleaning, humidifiers and air purifier installations improving home air quality. We also provide ventilation evaluations identifying harmful pollutants along with solutions removing them from your indoor environment.

For ultimate air duct sanitation, we perform professional cleaning services for both hot and cold air return systems.

Duct Cleaning Service

Dirty air ducts circulating dust, pollen and pet hair trigger allergy symptoms for many homeowners. Our Des Plaines team performs professional, affordable duct cleaning services for cleaner indoor air quality and better HVAC efficiency. We deep clean both hot and cold air returns removing years of built up debris.

Leaky ductwork results in higher energy bills plus circulating dust, mold and pests. Our Des Plaines team performs professional Aeroseal duct sealing eliminating up to 90% of leaks.

We seal cracks and gaps throughout your duct system for better efficiency, indoor air quality and home comfort.
We use a non-toxic sealing product safe for your family and pets while creating an airtight seal.

Our technicians assess all runs, boots, plenums, joints, registers and the air handler unit to find leaks. We seal them from the inside spray-injecting a specially formulated polymer sealant into ducts. The results are a quieter, more comfortable home saving you up to 20% on energy costs.
