The warm summer weather is perfect for exciting outdoor activities, or for just spending some quality time at home and bond with family. However the warm temperatures can also become uncomfortable if you don’t have a functioning air cooling system. This is especially true for regions like Minnesota where temperatures have been known to exceed 90 degrees Fahrenheit. If you fancy a new HVAC system or your existing one needs repairs, there may be a couple of decisions that you’ll have to contend with. For example, in cases of breakdowns, you may be torn between repairs or replacement. Usually, this boils down to a few factors like how long you’ve had it or your maintenance routine.

There could be a number of underlying issues that factor into cooling problems. The two most common issues are a failed compressor and low refrigerant levels. The usual cause of both these issues is the age of the A/C unit itself. Both issues are signs that it's time to replace your air conditioning unit. While you might be able to repair the unit, the cost will be prohibitive, and buying a whole new unit altogether would be much easier and less stressful. Hiring a reputable HVAC contractor in the area, such as Rumpca Services, is essential in ensuring that any HVAC and air conditioning unit would be fixed properly, or replaced with a better one. The combination of experience, education and exceptional customer service the contractor provides makes for the perfect HVAC repair and replacement experience.

If you encounter a problem in your Woodbury, MN or Cottage Grove, MN heating system, you should first determine if your furnace had already served its time: the usual lifespan for a furnace is between 12 and 18 years, so replacement is your best choice if your furnace had already been heating up your home for a dozen years or more. Replacing your furnace is also the best option for units that pose safety hazards in your home (i.e. if poisonous carbon monoxide gas is working its way into your living area due to a cracked heat exchanger—the metal divider between the burning fuel and the heated air).
