HVAC Service in Hours—Not Days!

When your HVAC system isn’t working, it can cause serious discomfort in your home. That’s why Ernst Heating & Cooling sends service techs out within hours. You shouldn’t have to wait days for service!

Our service lineup includes:

Emergency Heating & Cooling Repair

Ernst offers 24-hour emergency service and repair in Hamel and surrounding areas 365 days a year. Call any time, day or night, and you’ll speak to a live representative who can send out a technician immediately. We can repair any make or model system whether we installed it or not.

Common Heating & Cooling Emergency Repairs

  • Malfunctioning thermostat – A thermostat issue means the rest of your system is likely out of order as well.
  • Power outage – A blown fuse is often the culprit when the power to your system is cut, however, it can also be caused by a larger problem.
  • Damaged fan – When your system’s fan breaks, there’s no way for the heated or cooled air to get to where it needs to go powerfully enough. 
  • Precision Heating & Cooling Tune-Ups

    Sometimes the need for service is obvious, as when your heating or cooling system completely stops working. But if you suspect that your HVAC isn’t performing quite like it should, or it just hasn’t been looked at in a while, call Ernst to schedule a precision tune-up.

    Our precision tune-up service consists of:

    • A professional inspection
    • Adjustment
    • Cleaning
    • Balance
    • Lubrication

    Tune-up service makes sure your heating and cooling system is working as efficiently as possible—which may help lower your energy bills!

    Metro East IL Heating & Cooling Installation

    We install the following types of heating and cooling systems:

    • Conventional – We install Lennox air conditioners, furnaces, and heat pumps. With a range of models available, your Ernst installation technician can help you decide which one is the best fit for your home, usage requirements, and budget.
    • Geothermal – Installing a GeoComfort geothermal heat pump can drastically reduce your energy consumption and decrease your energy bills. Call Ernst Heating & Cooling today to find out if a geothermal heat pump is right for you.
    • Mini-split – Mini-split systems direct heating or cooling to your entire home or one room or area.
    • Boilers – We install Lennox boilers with Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) ratings of 80 and 95.
    • Indoor Air Quality systems – Keep your home comfortable and healthy with humidifiers and dehumidifiers. Balancing the humidity in your home can help reduce the potential for mold. 

    Home Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) System Installation

    We install systems that can drastically improve the air quality and comfort of your home. Our Metro East IAQ installation services include:

    • Humidifiers – Excessively dry air in your home can aggravate dry skin, nasal passages, and even worsen the symptoms of eczema. We install a selection of high-quality Honeywell and Aprilaire humidifiers.
    • Dehumidifiers – Too much moisture in your home can create a breeding ground for mold and mildew. For the best performance and operation, we install Honeywell and Aprilaire whole-house humidifier systems.
    • Filtration systems – We install Lennox Healthy Climate filtration systems.

    We also offer duct cleaning services, which can provide cleaner air and a more efficient heating and cooling system.

    The Ernst Heating & Cooling Energy Savings Agreement

    Some HVAC companies might offer you a maintenance agreement. At Ernst, we do things a little differently by offering our clients an Energy Savings Agreement.

    The Ernst Energy Savings Agreement gives you:

    • Two precision tune-ups a year (one on the air conditioner, one on the furnace).
    • A 15 percent discount on any repairs that need to be made.
    • Priority scheduling.
    • Automatic scheduling of maintenance appointments.
    • A 15 percent discount on filters.
    • Peace of mind knowing that you have done everything you can to reduce the risk of a major breakdown!

    Regularly scheduled professional maintenance helps keep your heating and cooling system operating at its highest efficiency, which can make your energy bills more manageable and can help you spot problems before they happen.
