The Right AC System Makes All the Difference

If you’re in need of a new air conditioning system, choosing the best unit for your individual needs can make all the difference in how cool your home stays during the hot summer months. Each home is a little different, which means you may need a different type of AC installation than the home next door or down the street.

At Metro Heating & Cooling, we take pride in staying up to date on all the latest technology, and we maintain current best practices for AC installation, repair, and maintenance in the Twin Cities. We know the signs of a faulty HVAC system and can customize a system that perfectly suits the needs of your home.

Whether you’re looking to replace your existing air conditioning system, or you’ve built a new home and need an A/C install for the very first time, there are a few important factors to consider. Your new AC system should be:

Energy Efficient: When it comes to choosing the right air conditioning system, it’s important to make sure you’re getting the most efficient unit for the size and shape of your home. Fortunately, when you work with us, you’ll have a vast selection of energy efficient air conditioner models from which you can choose. We’ll help you find the one that will help you keep your energy costs as low as possible all summer long.

High Performing: Our AC technicians take into account the size, shape, and location of your home before making a recommendation for which unit is best. When it comes to performance, these factors can have a significant impact, which is why it’s important to seek guidance from the professionals before you choose an air conditioning system for your home.

Properly Maintained: Proper maintenance is a key component to ensuring your new AC system will last as long as possible. When you’re looking for AC installation services in the Twin Cities, choosing an HVAC service that is committed to providing you with exceptional maintenance, repairs, and emergency services can make all the difference in how long your AC unit lasts.

Consider a Ductless Air Conditioning System

Also known as a mini-split air conditioner, a ductless air conditioner cools in the same manner as a traditional central AC system, but does not need ducts installed throughout the home or business. Ductless air conditioning units provide a cost-effective solution to your cooling needs that is more energy efficient than a traditional air conditioning system. If you’re looking for an air conditioning solution that will deliver exceptional comfort no matter how high Minnesota temperatures rise, you may want to consider a ductless air conditioning system for your home or business.

Common Signs You May Need a New AC Unit Installed in Your Home

Before it gets too hot in the Twin Cities, it’s important to make sure your air conditioning system is up to the task of keeping your home cool and comfortable all season long. If you’ve never had a faulty AC unit, you may not realize how hot your home can get if your AC system is not functioning the way it should during the hottest months of the year. Fortunately, there are some common signs to watch for that can indicate your AC unit is not functioning as it should. If you notice any of these signs, you should contact us for an evaluation before temperatures begin to rise.

  • There is very little or no cool air flowing through your home
  • Moisture is building up around your AC unit
  • There are odd sounds or smells coming from your AC system
  • You notice an increase in your energy bills

 What Is the Average Lifespan of an Air Conditioner?

Although the lifespan of your air conditioner can vary depending on a variety of factors, here is some information that can help you make an informed decision when it comes to choosing the right air conditioning solution for your home or business.

  • Central air conditioners usually last for about 15 years, provided they are properly maintained throughout their lifespan.
  • New AC models often have a longer service life than older models.
  • Operating and repair costs for an older, inefficient model can quickly add up, which is why it’s often best to replace an older unit with a new model to significantly reduce energy costs.
