About Chicago

While the city of Chicago spans an area of 227 square miles, the total metropolitan area is much larger - between 7,000 and 8,500 square miles. Heating contractors are based in and serve most of the entire area, including suburbs such as Aurora, Naperville, and Arlington Heights.

Some contractors in the Chicago area belong to the Mechanical Contractors Association of Chicago, an organization that offers its members educational opportunities and promotes them through marketing and government lobbying. Contractors may also seek accreditation with the Chicago Better Business Bureau.

Legal Requirements

The Chicago Municipal Code outlines regulations for heating of rental properties. According to this code, landlords are required to either pay for heat or provide a tenant with a written estimate of the cost of heating their apartment. Inside temperature is also regulated during colder months. Between September 15 and June 1, the temperature must be 68 degrees between 8:30 AM and 10:30 PM and 66 degrees otherwise. If a landlord does not maintain these temperatures, a tenant can do the following to rectify the situation:

  • For a week, write down the temperature of the apartment three times a day.
  • Send a letter to the landlord with the above information and demand that they raise the temperature to comply with the Chicago Municipal Code.
  • If the landlord refuses or neglects to comply, call s Heat Hotline at (312) 744-5000.

Alternative Energy in Chicago

The Chicago Climate Action Plan is a massive effort on the part of government, businesses and residents to reduce emissions in the city and reduce its overall carbon footprint. Doing so will include upgrades to Illinois power plants and employing more renewable energy sources. Already, there are a few businesses, like Optimal Energy on the North Shore and Viter Geothermal in Chicago, that install geothermal heating and cooling systems. Additionally, there are many companies that provide Chicagoans with solar energy systems. Along with its other measures, the city predicts that use of alternative energy will reduce its emissions 25% below its 1990 levels by 2020.

State Aid for Upgrading Energy Systems

Illinois provides low-income residents funds to weatherize their homes through the Illinois Home Weatherization Assistance Program. This includes inspection, maintenance, repair or replacement of heating systems. This program is expected to greatly benefit from the 2009 economic stimulus plan.

The office for Cook County and the City of Chicago can be contacted at 312-795-8998.

Typical Climate

Chicago experiences a wide range of temperatures as the seasons change. The average highs between the middle of June and the end August are above 80 degrees. The average lows between December and February are less than 30 degrees. Its average snowfall peeks in January at 11 inches. These harsh winters make heating systems and insulation an important aspect of homes in Chicago.

Chicago takes its nickname "The Windy City" from the heavy gusts of wind that blow between the Downtown skyscrapers.
