Your home is your oasis, so keeping the temperature just right is important. Minnesota weather can go from hot and humid to frigid in a short amount of time, but your home’s comfort is what matters the most. So, if your heating and cooling system is not working at peak efficiency, you may be wondering if it’s time to replace it. New HVAC systems in your home can be a big investment. They will last for many years, so it’s important to know what to do when planning for a full system replacement. Here are some tips.

Tip #1: Know what you need.
Do you need a gas furnace replacement? Maybe a ductless heating and cooling system would work well for your home’s specific layout. Whatever it is, do some research on your options and call our team of experts for advice. Our experienced, no-pressure experts can help you determine what size and type of system you need. Most importantly, we will work within your budget, so you know what you need.

Tip #2: Know when you need it.
Most heating and cooling systems will last in the 10 to 20-year range. If the system has been around for longer than two decades, it simply will not be running as efficiently as it could be. In addition, if you’ve spent significant money on repairs in recent years to keep the system running, it may be time to weigh the costs. That money you’re spending on repairs could be going towards a new, updated, and reliable system.

Tip #3: Know what it costs.
Metro Air Heating & Cooling understands that your home or office’s heating and cooling system is a costly investment. We are glad to work within your budget and offer different system options. For added convenience, we offer various financing options to help lighten the load. Our plans range from three to eight-year loans, and interest rates are much lower than credit card interest rates. In addition, many of the options are no interest loans. This means you’ll end up saving money in the long run. Based on approved credit, our available financing options can help get you on the path toward system replacement in no time at all.

Whether it’s a new gas furnace, a heat pump, or something else, a new system is a significant purchase for your home or commercial building that will allow you to stay comfortable for many years to come.

Why You Should Ditch Your Window Air Conditioner

Written by: Metro Air

Before we know it, summer weather will be making its appearance and we will be scrambling to get into some cool air-conditioned air. With our hot and humid days in this part of the country, air conditioning is a necessity for many people and window air conditioning units may be what they turn to. However, there is a better option out there that is more energy efficient and a lot more effective in providing even cooling all season long. Here are some reasons why you should get rid of your window air conditioner and invest in a central air conditioner or ductless mini-split heat pump to provide cooling this spring and summer.

#1: They take up space.
Air conditioning units for the windows are big, bulky, and ugly – not just from an inside view, but from the outside too. They protrude out of the side of the home and can decrease curb appeal. Not to mention, they take up valuable space in the window, cutting out natural sunlight.

#2: They don’t cool much space.
If you have a large space, a window unit is not going to do much to help cool things down. They can be helpful for small bedrooms or small apartments, but if you’re looking for air conditioning that will cool a large living room, family room, or kitchen/entertaining space, a window unit just won’t provide the cooling you need.

#3: They waste energy.
Most window air conditioners come with low SEER ratings and simply do not maximize energy usage like a new central air conditioner or ductless mini split will. That means you may see a peak in your utility bill prices over the summer. Getting rid of your old window units will help save energy and save money over the long haul and will keep you more comfortable, too.

#4: They are noisy.
Tired of having to talk loudly or repeat yourself when your window unit is running on high during a warm spring or summer day? Central air conditioning systems or ductless heat pumps are so quiet that you will hardly notice that they are running!

Your window air conditioning units simply can’t compete with the efficiency of a new central air conditioning system or ductless heat pump. These systems are worth the investment and will help you decrease your utility bill and save energy, all while keeping you comfortable and adding value to your home! Our experienced team at Metro Air Heating & Cooling can help you determine which air conditioning option is right for you. So, before you go hauling in that window unit for the summer, reconsider your other options. We can help you find a new system that fits your budget and space requirements!
