Air Conditioner is Freezing UpAt Northern’s One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning, we know there’s never a good time for an HVAC emergency. If you’re in the Minneapolis area and your HVAC system isn’t functioning properly, we’re here to help.

What Qualifies as an HVAC Emergency?

Simply put, an HVAC emergency is anything that needs to be fixed ASAP. Whether your unit is blowing out warm air, won’t shut off, or stopped working altogether, our experienced technicians know how important your time and comfort are.  We’ll arrive on time and prepared to handle your Minneapolis HVAC emergency.

Why Is My HVAC Not Working?

Believe it or not, one of the top reasons for an HVAC emergency is improper preventive maintenance. Consult your system’s owner’s manual regarding necessary preventive maintenance, including regularly changing air filters. You should also schedule an annual professional maintenance visit for services such as professionally cleaning and attending to HVAC system components and verifying fluid levels. These simple routine tasks are essential to the efficiency, reliability, and safety of your system.

A close second is Minneapolis homes that are utilizing outdated systems. Aging heating and cooling systems are far more prone to shut down completely than newer, more reliable, and more energy efficient models. If you are paying for repeated repairs and emergency service calls, consider the 50% rule: When the cost of repairs approaches 50% of the value of your system, you’re typically better off financially in the long run upgrading your system.

What Can I Do?

Be proactive. As soon as you notice something strange about the function of your HVAC unit, do something about it. Check your filter to see if it needs to be cleaned or replaced. Is your thermostat working? Is there something blocking your outdoor unit, causing it to overheat? Looking at these possibilities can save you time and money before your HVAC situation escalates into an emergency.
