From 1834 as a modest encampment on the banks of the Fox River until today, Aurora is a rapidly growing city with a population of over 200,000. As the first city in America to use electric lights for illuminating its streets, it earned the moniker “City of Lights.” This once manufacturing town is now hailed for its destination dining, community festivities, and award-winning Broadway Theater. It is also a prime spot for outdoor activities and adventure.
In January, the temperatures in Aurora hit the low teens. In July, it’s not uncommon for the temperatures to hover in the high 80’s. The Chicago area has experienced extreme temperature swings for both highs and lows. On July 24, 1934, the record high was a sweltering 105 degrees while the record low was January 20, 1985, which shivered in at -27 degrees. Those are some incredible numbers!
Both AC and furnace systems need attention and care to navigate the changes that Mother Nature throws at cities located in northern Illinois
During a routine maintenance check on the 20-year-old system, the technicians found the furnace had a lot of mechanical fatigue and water damage inside the furnace on the exhaust system. The exhaust system was running extremely hot to the touch which means the bearings are worn and could cause failure at any point. Upon further inspection, additional flaws were found on the heat exchanger. In addition, the blower motor was straining to start up and this is a concern and may cause a failure. Due to the age of the unit and the cost of these issues, the technician recommended replacing the furnace.
Comfort Services replaced the system with a new Amana 80% 9-speed ECM furnace. This system comes with a 10-year parts & labor warranty. The Heat exchanger has a 20-year parts warranty and a 10-year parts & 20-year heat exchanger warranty.
A Comfort Plus Maintenance customer called thinking they had an issue with their thermostat not working correctly. The technician arrived and found no heat on in the downstairs unit. After completing a full diagnostic, the tech found the gas valve shorted out, the blower motor not working, and the blower wheel corroded to the shaft. With the furnace being about 15 years old and the heat exchanger flawed with a lot of flame impingement, the tech recommended a furnace replacement rather than a costly furnace repair.
Comfort Services replaced the system with a new Amana 80% 9-speed ECM furnace. This system comes with a 10-year parts & labor warranty. The heat exchanger has a 20-year parts warranty and it comes with 10-year parts & 20-year heat exchanger warranty, too.
During routine furnace maintenance, our Comfort Plus Maintenance customer decided it was time to upgrade their 19-year-old system after their annual heating system tune-up & carbon monoxide inspection and added on a humidifier for increased comfort. After a full evaluation, the technicians presented the customer with multiple furnace replacement options, and they chose the best fit for their home.

Comfort Services’ technicians were scheduled for a routine furnace maintenance on a Comfort Plus Maintenance member’s 18+ year-old system. Upon completing the maintenance service, the techs found a pulled blower motor and discovered that the heat exchangers had a crack in them and were in bad shape. Due to the findings of heat exchangers and the age of the system, the customer was advised to schedule a free replacement consultation for an estimate on replacing their old furnace, ac, humidifier, and furnace plenum.
The technicians at Comfort Services replaced the system with a new Amana 13 SEER condenser with a matching evaporator coil. The system comes with a 10-year parts warranty and 20-year compressor warranty and is also covered by our Love Your System or Your Money Back Guarantee.
