Lowe's Air Duct in Illinois

Illinois is a state in the Midwestern region of the United States. It is the 6th-most populous U.S. state and 25th-largest state in terms of land area, and is often noted as a microcosm of the entire United States. Illinois lies midway between the Continental Divide and the Atlantic Ocean, and the state’s southern tip is 500 miles north of the Gulf of Mexico.

How does climate of Illinois affect HVAC performance?

Our health depends on where we live, how our neighborhoods are built, air quality and water. Climate change is causing many environmental changes and impacts to our ecosystem, infrastructure, and communities. In Illinois, it is contributing to more frequent and severe heat waves, floods, droughts, and worsening air quality. Fortunately, there are things you can do to improve indoor air quality, like making sure your HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) system works properly, and that it maintains the correct temperature and humidity indoors.

Illinois’ climate is typically continental with cold winters, warm summers, and frequent short fluctuations in temperature, humidity, cloudiness, and wind direction. Many consider the more moderate temperatures of spring and fall to be the most pleasant with reliably warm, sunny days. Snow is likely in winter.

The weather in Illinois can be fairly extreme:

In summer (June to August) temperatures rise to between 80°F (27°C) and 90°F (32°C) and there is high humidity which is another problematic factor that can impact the HVAC’s efficiency. Hot and humid weather means that your air conditioning system needs to work harder to perform as it should do, making it less efficient.

In winter (January to March) it can be wet and cold, with temperatures as low as 12°F (-11°C) and icy winds whipping off Lake Michigan. The main issue that arises when snow and ice encased the unit is that it triggers an emergency shut-off as the system freezes up. This cuts off heat to the home, which could cause burst pipes that result in property damage as the internal temperatures drop.

Thunderstorms and severe weather

Illinois averages around 50 days of thunderstorm activity a year which put it somewhat above average for a number of thunderstorm days for the United States. Illinois is vulnerable to tornadoes with an average of 35 occurring annually, which puts much of the state at around 5 tornadoes per 10,000 square miles (30,000 km2) annually. With thunderstorms comes lightning which can harm your HVAC system. Severe weather brings lightning and lightning brings power surges which can fry your system completely. The first thing you should do right before the storms come is to turn your system off at the breaker.

Lake Michigan

Lake Michigan is one of the five Great Lakes of North America and the only one located entirely within the United States. It influences the climate of northeastern Illinois, especially Chicago. The large thermal mass of the lake tends to moderate temperatures, causing cooler summers and warmer winters.

Air quality in Illinois

As an urban center, Chicago enjoys the “urban heat island effect,” which usually keeps the city about 2 degrees warmer than the surrounding countryside. Urban areas also enhance summertime precipitation downwind of the city and cause changes in humidity, cloudiness, wind speeds and directions. Moreover, urban outdoor air pollution can be an important contributor to the indoor air quality, especially in highly ventilated homes. Similarly, indoor air pollution sources may also be important causes of urban outdoor air pollution. In order to ensure that your HVAC system is environmentally friendly as possible it is important to keep it in good condition. A good maintenance regime will prevent and long-term damage.
