Air Conditioning in Minneapolis MN

It’s spring again in Minneapolis, which means it’s time for homeowners to get their air conditioning systems ready for the summer. Annual air conditioning cleaning and maintenance should be performed by homeowners or a licensed service contractor. If your air conditioning system is over 20 years old, it has surpassed its designed life expectancy, which means parts will eventually fail as they are much less energy efficient and prone to leak refrigerant from general wear and tear. Also, the R-22 refrigerant used in air conditioning systems over 20 years old has been phased out by the EPA for harming the ozone layer. This has caused an extreme spike in the cost of R-22 refrigerant and is subsequently passed down to home owners who have old air conditioning systems.  For these reasons, many homeowners are choosing...

Boiler Replacement in Saint Paul | Minnesota | 55105

Replacing old boilers in St. Paul saves homeowners money and gives them a piece of mind.  Residential boilers are designed to have a life expectancy of 15 to 20 years.  Once a boiler has reached this age parts will begin to fail at a frequent rate and the boiler housing itself often begins to rust. If the boiler was not maintained well, it will loose efficiency as it is not be performing at an optimal level costing homeowners even more. This is why it is a good idea to replace the boiler instead of racking up additional costs on repairs and higher energy bills as one of Mill City Heating & Cooling's customers in Saint Paul's Summit Hill Neighborhood did. The customer had recently purchased the home and was frustrated with the amount of repairs the boiler required last year. Furthermore an efficiency test...
