The Importance of Heating and AC Repair | Minneapolis, MN

A couple of hundred years ago, the Indigenous Natives and settlers were living in the Minneapolis, MN region surviving harsh, polar winters and sticky, humid summers.

The invention of environmental controls like heating and air conditioning make living in the Twin Cities a lot safer and a lot more comfortable for all residents.

Minneapolis is considered to have a hot summer, humid, continental climate. However, this doesn’t fully express the severe weather that’s experienced here.

For example, the lowest temperature in record is -41 degrees Fahrenheit, while the hottest temperature on record was 108 degrees Fahrenheit. It’s safe to say when it gets cold in the Mini-Apple it’s beyond freezing and when it gets hot here it’s boiling!

The prudent people of Minneapolis, MN have made Blue Ox Heating and Air the most trusted company when it comes to fast, affordable, and expert heating and AC repair.

Catching HVAC Repair Early Can Save You Money

Minnesotans understand the importance of a well-functioning HVAC system. The summers can be unbearable without air conditioning and the winters demand a properly heated home.

Did you know neglecting your heating and air conditioning units can cost you an average of an extra 30% when it comes to the life of your climate control appliances?

Heating and AC repair are vital to a fully functioning system. If you’ve allowed your HVAC system to go without regular maintenance procedures or if you’ve neglected necessary repairs, then you might have to replace your environmental controls a lot sooner than expected.

Other Benefits of Regular Maintenance

A well-maintained HVAC system costs less to run because it uses less electricity and can last many years longer than it’s ignored counterpart. A subscription routine service from Blue Ox can save you a significant amount of your hard-earned cash by protecting the functionality of your HVAC system.

“We recently moved from Southern California. I knew that the winters would be harsh but what I wasn’t expecting was the oppressive heat during the summer months.

Our new house doesn’t have air conditioning at all! I bought a window unit for the bedroom and honestly believed it would be enough to get us through the summer. We got through May alright, but when the city experienced a heatwave I realized we needed a central AC unit.

I called Blue Ox for an estimate and they were friendly and transparent about the entire process.

The estimate was wrong! It turned out the work and the unit cost us a couple of hundred dollars less than expected and the work was completed within four days when the estimate cited it would take two weeks to install the air conditioner.

I’m happy as a clam with Blue Ox. I’m calling them with any heating and AC repair we might have in the future.”

“I’m not sure why my partner and I decided to renovate a turn-of-the-century home during an Arctic winter of epic proportions, but we did. We started the renovation in late fall working with space heaters to keep us warm. 

It was right before Christmas when we couldn’t feel our toes when we decided the house needed immediate heating and AC repair. We reached out to a few different HVAC companies but the only one to call us back during the holiday was Blue Ox. 

While the heating was our more immediate concern, the technician from Blue Ox took the time to explain to us the importance of conducting both heating and AC repair before the severe weather happens. We went ahead with the universal HVAC repairs and finished our renovations without wearing our winter coats!” 

We’re so pleased with the work done by Blue Ox that we’ve put them on speed dial!”
