A customer of ours in Minnetonka, Minnesota decided to add a second level to their existing home and Mill City Heating & Cooling was brought in to provide new duct work to heat the addition. After reviewing the existing heating and cooling system and performing a heat gain/loss calculation, Mill City Heating & Cooling found that their existing furnace and air conditioner would not be large enough to support the new addition. After reviewing different furnace and air conditioning options with the customer, they decided to go with a new high efficiency, 96% efficient Amana furnace, as well as a 16 seer Amana air conditioner. The old units were changed out for these updated, efficient units and insulated duct work was run in the new attic space.
Our customers are more than happy that Mill City Heating & Cooling was able to proactively identify the equipment sizing problem instead of the customer finding out the hard way in the middle of the summer or the dead of winter.
