We Will Use Camera Inspections On Your Drains

Polar Aire, based in Collinsville, IL and serving the Metro East area, underscores the importance of proactive maintenance with camera drain inspections. This cutting-edge approach is instrumental in preventing major repairs and uncovering hidden issues. Through this minimally invasive method, our experts can detect signs of deterioration, corrosion, or damage that may elude external inspection.

One of the key benefits of camera drain inspection is its ability to identify clogs and obstructions, even those influenced by external factors beyond your control. For instance, consider the intrusion of tree roots into pipes, leading to significant blockages over time. With a camera drain inspection, these invasive roots can be detected early, mitigating potential concerns before they escalate. By promptly addressing such issues, you can prevent structural damage to your plumbing system and avoid the need for extensive repairs.

Reach out to us for reliable camera drain inspection services, ensuring the long-term performance and efficiency of your plumbing infrastructure.

Clear Your Drains With Hydro Jetting!

You’re likely aware of the immense power of pressurized water. In certain circumstances, it can even cut through steel and aluminum. Leveraging cutting-edge pressure technology, we harness this power by pressurizing regular water, guiding it under intense pressure into your drain or sewer line. Our method, known as hydro jetting, is both environmentally friendly and cost-effective since we solely use ordinary water under pressure.

With an array of nozzles and attachments at our disposal, we not only oversee the cleaning process but also direct powerful streams of water to penetrate the most stubborn blockages. By adjusting the water pressure and volume, we meticulously restore your sewer or drain line to a “like new” state. Give us a call today at 618.772.7007 for our Hydro Jetting drain cleaning service.

Is it possible to clear clogs by yourself?

At Polar Aire, we advise scheduling professional drain cleaning at least once a year to maintain optimal plumbing performance. The recommended frequency may vary depending on factors like usage and household size. Regular cleanings help prevent clogs and ensure smooth water flow, extending the life of your plumbing system.

Which drain cleaning method is considered the most effective?

At Polar Aire, we offer a range of drain cleaning methods to suit various situations. While each method has benefits, hydro-jetting is often considered one of the most effective. Hydro-jetting uses high-pressure water to remove debris, grease, and buildup from pipes, ensuring thorough cleaning and improved flow.

Brad Skertich
March 23, 2024

Jarod and his team were great. During our initial meeting we discussed the function of our current system, options for new systems and improvements needed that will benefit our home. This lead to three options to chose from that were extremely competitive. On installation day the team removed the old system, added a return air duct and installed the new system by mid afternoon with a new thermostat. They were meticulous, clean and explained every detail on how the new system will function making the process very simple. The work area was immaculate when done. A+

Stephanie Becker

I woke up to a leaking gas hot water heater, and made a call to Polar hoping they could squeeze me in in the next few days. Within an hour, Corey and Darren were at my house with a brand new water heater and had it up and running an hour later. They were extremely professional/friendly, and made sure I didn't have any questions before they left. I'm extremely happy with the service, and will be using Polar Aire for all of my needs moving forward!

The work was completed quickly and so reasonably I couldn’t believe it! Polar is my new go to Plumbing Company! I highly recommend them!!!

Robin Arnold

Super respectful. I honestly expected someone to come and try to sell me on a bunch of things I didn't need to fix the issue... but he didn't. He was very respectful, explained everything well and was not pushy at all. Would 10/10 recommend them to anyone.

Andy Miles

Sharon Deutsch
February 21, 2024

If I could give Polar Aire 10 stars, I would. Starting with my first phone call to Samatha. She was kind and patient with me. I was a little upset because my furnace wasn't running. She said she would have someone out, that very day, between 3 and 5. I was shocked to have someone come out the same day. Jared was at my house at 4:00. What a kind and considerate young man. Not only did he fix the furnace problem, (it was the thermostat) he checked out my entire furnace to make sure everything looked okay. This young man went above and beyond for me. It is obvious he knows exactly what he is doing. If you need anyone to service your heating or A/C please give them a call. I haven't had customer service like this for a long, long time. I intend to tell everyone I know about this family owned business. They are SPECIAL. Sharon Deutsch

Corey and his guy today came out and replaced my water line. He got out here a day after he priced it out and they were $2k cheaper than everyone else's bid. They came out did an amazing job and cleaned up great! My water pressure has never been better and it looks great. They're also just very cool guys and seem to have a good time! Will definitely have them back out when I need any plumbing done!

I had a furnace “checkup” before Winter comes. I received a text with an ETA about 15 minutes prior to the scheduled appointment. Steve was the tech that did the inspection/checkup. He was very thorough and answered any questions or concerns I had. After he was finished, he showed me the details of what he found on his IPad.

I would definitely recommend Polar Aire. Jarod came out and fixed my Air Conditioning in August and was extremely professional, courteous and thorough. He made it easy to call Polar Aire again, this time for my furnace. Jarod was once again punctual, professional, thorough and honest. He explained the problem and provided me with options. Taking the time to explain each option. I decided that it would be best to replace my 20 year old furnace. Tim and Steven delivered my new furnace first thing the following morning. They had the old unit removed and the new one installed and working within a few hours. Tim and Steven were also both very professional, respectful and diligent. Once they were finished they thoroughly cleaned the area leaving no mess behind. If you are in need of A/C or Furnace work, I would highly recommend Polar Aire. Polar Aire is trustworthy.

Man, oh man, whatever you do, if you’re in a bad way for HVAC services, call PolAire. Our York AC (only twelve years old) had a motor burn out when it’s 98 degrees outside. I struggled to cool my bedroom and living room by buying two portable AC units. I first called a local HVAC company, and the young man told me the motor was bad. He told me this York motor is no longer made and very expensive. He quoted me an astronomical number to repair and told me I would be better off buying a whole new HVAC system. I simply cannot afford that, so on a whim I looked at Google reviews and wanted a simple quote for a full install. I was immediately contacted and a in home visit was scheduled. I met with Jarod (very polite, gracious and helpful). I told Jarod what I was told, and he said he wanted to help us. Jared told me it appears I was misquoted and the price on the motor I was given was inflated. Jarod also told me there is other options we could consider. On his own accord, Jarod actually went down to the furnace and removed (opening the motor). Jarod told me this was the source of the problem, and he would attempt to find me a replacement motor. Jarod left and returned within an hour. The motor he retrieved did not work properly, so Jarod told me he would check the warehouse for a rebuilt and refurbished furnace, and this would solve my problems if we just replaced the furnace portion (with control board and motor in it). Jarod found a refurbished Trane furnace, then came back to my house to install. This was at 10 pm to boot. This young man went way above and beyond to get me and my family up and running in this miserably hot weather. Jarod is a god send, and a very customer service focused employee who WANTS to see his customers taken care of. I paid just a fraction of what a whole new system would have costed. And he still had two service calls left after he put this furnace in within hours. I HIGHLY recommend PolAire, and ask for Jarod. Fantastic company with excellent service. Thank you all so very much. We were miserable in that heat, and my dogs were also suffering very badly. No upswell whatsoever, just caring and honest folks. Thank you all so much

Looked for ac services and got really tired of the run around from the "big names " charging ridiculous prices and pushing for a "membership " pkg, or, not even returning calls or emails. Then I remembered passing Polar Aire every time I came down here from Aurora IL Called, phone was actually answered by Samantha, explained my situation and asked about any specials, discounts as I am disabled and on a very limited income, Sam hooked me up with a great price, and booked me for next day service! Steve arrived in the time window given, very polite, knowledgeable and a patient listener! As I have experience with this type of work I am very impressed that there was no high pressure sales pitch or ad on's, recommended a new part even though it wasn't critical, and replaced it on the spot!! I am a customer for life with them! Supporting a local business is a must for me and they didn't disappoint!! Ok, it's been a few month's and it is time for the furnace check up. Called on a Saturday and left a message with their service and received a call back from Jarod same day! We set an appointment for Monday with a 2 to 4pm window, received a call Monday asking if he could come early! Who does that?! Agreed and Steve showed up with a quickness! Very thorough and again, polite, professional and just provided a world class experience! I am a customer for life with this company!!
