Is a heat pump right for you?

Written by: Metro Air

Spring is flying by and summer weather will be here before you know it. Now is the time to think ahead to your cooling system. Not sure what the best option is? Heat pumps are some of the most installed machines today. Here’s why.

Heat pumps provide cooling and heating in one machine! That’s right – with just a touch of a button, you can switch from cooling to heating. Tired of hauling in big, bulky window air conditioning units in the summer? These are not only a pain to bring in and out every year, but they use a lot of energy. On the other hand, heat pumps use less energy than air conditioning systems and chances are, you’ll see a drop in your utility bill right away!

In Minnesota, one of the biggest reasons to install a heat pump is because liquid propane is so expensive. A quality heat pump system is an affordably priced option. And because they use less energy, you’ll pay less in utility costs not just in the summer, but in the winter too. So, the upfront cost of the system can be offset a bit by the money you’ll save through the year. Not to mention, Metro Air Heating and Cooling offers several easy financing options to fit with your budget and make it more affordable. As a proud Bryant dealer, we will make sure we find a quality, durable system that fits comfortably within your budget guidelines.  We install:

So, whether you are installing a completely new system for your home or replacing an inefficient furnace that is at the end of its life, we can help!

That’s worth the investment!  Contact our experienced team at Metro Air Heating and Cooling today to learn more about heat pumps and find the right one for your space.

Does Indoor Air Quality Impact Allergies?

Written by: Metro Air

Springtime brings beautiful blooms and sunnier weather. Unfortunately, people living with allergies or asthma are often miserable this time of year! Did you know that your indoor air quality can impact allergies? Here’s how your HVAC system plays a part in this and how you can make sure you can minimize your allergy symptoms.

#1: Schedule your spring tune-up.
Your heating and cooling system accumulates dirt, dust, pollen, and other allergens. These enter the equipment and are circulated through the air. Making sure you stay on top of preventative maintenance is a great way to ensure the system is cleaned and functioning at its peak. Our team at Metro Air Heating and Cooling will clean the filters as well as the outside and inside components. This will help your allergies! Not to mention, you can take a breath of relief knowing that preventative maintenance also helps prolong the life of the system.

#2: Add an air filter system.
Bacteria, pollen, allergens, mold spores, viruses, and more travel through the air. This contributes to asthma, allergies, and illness. The easiest way to combat unclean air is with a top notch air purification system. Our Bryant air purification systems can help! Here are two of the most popular.

Evolution® Perfect Air ™ Purifier:
This outstanding system cleans the air in your home in only seconds. One of the most revolutionary features is the Capture and Kills™ technology. This catches up to 99% airborne germs, viruses, bacteria and mold, then zaps them with an electrical charge to destroy them.

Bryant Preferred™ Series Air Purifier:
This system also uses the Capture and Kills™ technology and traps up to 96% of airborne germs and pathogens that cause the flu, common cold, and strep. This purifier is great for smaller spaces.

#3: Don’t neglect changing your air filters.
Filters in your system should be checked regularly and cleaned or replaced often. This is especially true if you own pets or if you suffer from seasonal allergies! We recommend changing your one-inch filters every 1-2 months. If you have four-inch media filters, we recommend changing them every 3-6 months.

So, are you ready to say goodbye to those pesky allergy symptoms? Contact our experts at Metro Air Heating & Cooling for details on air purification systems or to schedule your maintenance appointment. We service all brands! Or we’re glad to help provide options for a new, reliable heating or cooling system installation so you and your family can stay comfortable all year long.
