Air Conditioning

When temperatures rise here in you expect the air conditioning to keep your home cool and comfortable throughout the summer. A good air conditioner not only cools your home, but reduces humidity, filters the air, and does it all without giving you a sky-high electricity bill.

That is why you need a team of experts working with you to ensure your air conditioning remains in tip-top shape for years to come. With one of our affordable heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) maintenance agreement plans, you do not have to wonder if the filters have been changed or if the parts are wearing out.

Air Ducts

The newest and most efficient air conditioning system in the world will not heat or cool your home properly if the air duct system is in poor condition. The ductwork is responsible for taking conditioned air and distributing it throughout your home and into each room.

The duct system needs to be kept in good condition so your home is comfortable and temperatures are consistent year-round. The signs of poorly maintained heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) ductwork are obvious: hot and cold spots throughout the house, noisy air vents, or even air ducts that sweat and drip.

The ductwork in your home cannot be ignored. Our experts at MB Heating & Cooling have years of experience with duct cleaning, air vent installation, and even the design and repair of entire air duct systems. Utility costs in continue to rise and studies show residential electric bills are reduced when air ducts are cleaned, sealed, and repaired.

Ductless Systems

There are some rooms in your home that are never comfortable. Maybe it is the playroom at the end of the hall or the sunroom with all the big windows. No matter how you adjust the thermostat, it just never feels right. You might think adding a new air conditioning unit just for that room is too expensive or disruptive.

In most cases, you might be right, but a ductless system , sometimes called a mini split system, lets you add a dedicated unit to one room without the expense and disruption of ducted systems.

A ductless mini split surface mounts on the wall without the need for ductwork and vents cut into the walls. The wall-mounted unit blows warm or cool air into the room and draws it back in through one piece of equipment. The outdoor condensing unit is small and works quietly sitting outside the house.

Almost everyone in has a room that could feel better with its own ductless unit. Our heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) team at MB Heating & Cooling can help, so call us at 217-544-4328. We can estimate what ductless system is right for you.

Geothermal Heat Pumps

Conventional heat pumps reject and extract heat from the outside air to heat and cool your house. In the summer, the unit rejects heat from your home to the atmosphere and in the winter the heat pump removes heat energy from the outdoor air to heat inside. But during winter, a standard heat pump might lose some of its effectiveness because as the outside air gets colder, there is less heat energy in that air to transfer inside.

Geothermal heating and cooling units reject and absorb heat from the ground instead of the air. Just a few feet below the earth’s surface, the temperature of the ground stays relatively consistent throughout the year.

This constant temperature allows geothermal heating systems to remove heat from the ground without the fluctuations of air temperature. As a result, geothermal heat pumps are some of the most efficient heating and cooling systems on the market.

The changing weather and cold winters in make our market ideal for geothermal systems. Call MB Heating & Cooling at 217-544-4328 to see if a geothermal system installation is right for you. Request geothermal heat pump service online today.

The best heat pumps on the market provide low-cost heating and cooling to modern homes and small offices. All heat pumps, no matter how new or advanced, still need routine maintenance and repair. That is where MB Heating & Cooling can help.

Water Heaters

Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems are no longer the traditional units and styles you may be accustomed to in older homes or you grew up with. They deal with almost every major system in your home. One of these fringe systems in your home is a residential HVAC water heater.

In a nutshell, HVAC water heaters heat your water. There are two ways that this can be done. The first system involves a tank and the second system option is tankless. However, the basics are the same.

Tank water heaters are the traditional options and simply heat and store water according to your tank size. They can be heated by gas, oil, or electric power. Tankless water heaters, on the other hand, only heat water when you want it. These systems may additionally work with solar, geothermal, or other alternative heating sources in addition to the power sources of traditional tank systems in .

Whole-House Dehumidifiers

Nothing is so draining as heavy humidity in the heat. Cold humidity is scarcely better. Even when it is cool and air is moving, that sticky, clammy feeling is hard to shake off, particularly when it is in your own home. If you have ever had to deal with an unpleasantly damp atmosphere in your home, it may be time to consider a whole-house dehumidifier.

These handy systems are an easy, efficient way to pull excess moisture out of your home and prevent problems such as mold, rot, condensation, and other major issues. On a smaller scale, whole-house dehumidifiers can also lower your heating and air conditioning bills by providing a more pleasant atmosphere without pumping more cold or warm air into your home.

If someone in your home suffers from allergies, asthma, or other respiratory issues, high levels of humidity can intensify the problems. While it depends on your unique situation, lowering the humidity levels can dramatically help you and your loved ones.

When you are ready to explore your dehumidifier options, our professionals at MB Heating & Cooling are ready and happy to assist you at 217-544-4328. Request whole-house dehumidifier service online today.

Whole-House Generators

When the power suddenly goes out due to a violent storm, many residents may wish they had invested in a whole-house generator. Our team of professionals at MB Heating & Cooling can help you select and size a generator for your home so you are never without power.

A whole-house generator is basically a properly sized generator that can power your particular home effectively. You typically need a transfer switch to move your appliances and systems from your main circuit board to your generator.

If you own a smaller home and only plan on backing up a few appliances in a power outage, you may only need a small standby generator. However, if your home is average to larger sized and you require electrical backup for your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system, larger appliances, lighting system, and any other electronic devices, you will will need a whole-house generator to successfully power everything.

When it comes to whole-house generators, our experienced and highly trained HVAC experts can help you with an installation, replacement or upgrade, repair, or maintenance. Regardless of what your needs may be, our professionals can help.

Whole-House Humidifiers

Dry air is easily felt in certain places or during certain times. We can see its effects in our homes, in our pets, and in our families fairly quickly when the dry air is really bad. What got your home to that in in the first place?

The short answer is your humidity levels are both imbalanced and probably fluctuate far more than they should on a regular basis. You may only notice it when the humidity dramatically decreases, but that only points to a larger problem. Your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system can’t always properly manage these levels on its own.

One of the simplest ways to deal with constant dry air issues is by installing a whole-house humidifier. These systems are designed specifically to manage humidity levels in your home in ways that most HVAC systems are not. Depending on your model, they generally work with your HVAC system’s existing ductwork, which can make installation much simpler.

However, it’s certainly not a do-it-yourself (DIY) project. That is where our MB Heating & Cooling professionals can help you discover what systems are best for your needs and to install. Call 217-544-4328 to speak with our knowledgeable team. Request whole-house humidifier service online today.

Air Conditioner Replacement in Chatham, IL 62629

“MB Heating and Cooling Rocks!
I recently had to have an emergency repair and replacement of an A/C unit at our rental property–during the hottest week of the year. With one call late on a Sunday your amazing crew leapt into action.
The tech arrived at 11:30 that night but the unit was too far gone to fix. I got a call bright and early on Monday morning from your wonderful and helpful admin staff and we scheduled a site visit for that afternoon.
Josh showed up on the dot at our scheduled time, put on his shoe covers and mask, and we got down to the business of finding the best solution for our needs. It's rare to thoroughly enjoy an experience that will require you to write a big check at the end but Josh made it happen. He is knowledgeable, thorough, and can explain technical details without ever talking down to you.
Because it would be a few days before the unit could be installed, Josh brought over a portable A/C unit and set it up so the tenants would have some respite from the heat. What an amazing service! And to top it off there was a schedule opening and with our approval Levi, Mike, and Nicole came a day early for the installation. I think they left the job site cleaner than they found it.
We will only use MB Heating and Cooling and I will always recommend you. Thanks for all you do for your customers and your community!”
