Air Conditioning Installation and Replacement

If your air conditioner has reached the point where repairs no longer do the job or your home’s energy efficiency is at an all-time low, you may need a new system. When your Mounds View home is ready for a new or replacement air conditioner, our Arctic Mechanical professionals will install your cooling system without delay.

How do you know if you need a replacement air conditioner? Here are some of the most common issues. Your unit is:

  • Approaching the end of its life span, usually between 15 and 20 years

Efficiency decreases as your system gets closer to the end of its life. You want to act proactively to plan what your replacement purchase will be instead of acting reactively when your system unexpectedly quits. This can save you money.

  • Experiencing more and more repairs

Similar to when your car requires more and more repairs, there comes a time for evaluation. Are you spending more in repairs than it would cost to invest in a new system? If the answer is yes, call and talk to one of our knowledgeable team members to discuss your options.

  • Showing signs of running inefficiently

How can you tell if your air conditioner is running inefficiently? A good indication is if your energy bills are increasing and your utility company’s rates remain steady.

This typically demonstrates it’s taking longer for your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system to cool down your Minnesota, home to your preferred comfort level. Your system is running longer and using more energy than it should in this case—an increase in energy costs.

If you notice any of these signs with your air conditioner, or if you suspect another reason for needing a replacement, talk to one of our Arctic Mechanical team members. We will design a system best matched for your comfort needs and budget. Our experts are always here to help you.

We also offer several financing options to help if this is a concern. Contact us to discuss how our team can guide you through our process.

Air Conditioning Repairs

Not having your air conditioner working on the hottest of days in Minnesota, can be exasperating. Whenever you need a repair, let our heating and cooling experts quickly remedy it for you.

There are many ways your air conditioner can stop working in its normal capacity. A few symptoms you could experience are:

  • Hearing an unusual noise
  • Smelling an unusual odor like burning
  • Feeling warm air coming from your vents
  • Noticing your air conditioner is frozen
  • Leaking water

These symptoms mean you have an issue with your air conditioner. Ignoring problems usually only makes them bigger and more costly. Our recommendation is to have one of our Arctic Mechanical team members promptly diagnose and repair the issue for you.

Sometimes a repair turns into an emergency. Give us a call when it’s urgent. We are here 24/7 for you.

When you do need our professionals to make a repair, you can count on it staying repaired. We make our repairs right the first time—and only use the highest quality parts and materials when working on your system. Our experts are always here for you.

With annual professional care, you may experience maintenance benefits such as improved energy efficiency, extended system life span, and decreased emergencies.

“I highly recommend Arctic Mechanical! We had our 30 yr old AC unit replaced by them. Their admin assistant Sarah was friendly, fantastic, and timely when getting us a quote, and locking in our rate. Ryan and Lamar came out to do the job. They were professional, polite, friendly, respectful, and tidy. Everything was hands off for us, and we just went about our night. They completed everything in a timely manner, and worked around our work schedule. We are thrilled with the new AC unit! We will continue to recommend you if anyone should need services. Thank you so, so much! We are finally cooling down! :)” – Kim N.

“I highly recommend Arctic Mechanical for air conditioning installation/replacement. My unit died in the middle of the 90 degree heat wave two days before my daughters graduation party. Ryan went above and beyond to make sure I had central air for the party. He came out at 7am on a Saturday to install it – I am forever grateful! The air conditioner was up and running for the party and has been running ever since. Ryan is honest, knowledgeable, professional, and hardworking – you won’t be disappointed!”

– Tara R.

“I would recommend HIGHLY to anyone and everyone … he saved us ! In a dangerous heat index, and when technicians are maxed out on service calls, he still etched out time (same day) to fix and cool our home (and family)! He explained, in simple terms, the repair and offered healthy maintenance pointers to keep a healthy unit going forward. I feel more knowledgeable AND confident because of his work. Thank you thank you THANK YOU!”

– Toni T.

“The compressor on my HVAC system stopped working on the hottest day of the year so far. I called around to several companies and eventually found Arctic. They were able to get someone to my house within 2-days when everyone else was a week or more out. Upon arrival Chris, my technician, was incredibly polite, considerate and open with the constraints they were working under with regards to parts and available units if replacement was going to be needed. Expectations were set.

Chris investigated the issues we were having and found the root cause promptly and had my system back up and running in short order at minimal cost. At any time he could have tried to upsell me on a new unit but at no time did I feel pressured to commit to upgraded repairs that weren’t really necessary. I pleasantly surprised at the considerate and honest level of service I received at minimal cost for the urgent response time. Arctic has earned my business long term!”

– Mike M.

“We are so grateful for Ryan! He showed up on a 95 degree Sunday afternoon to fix our AC. He took the time to explain what was wrong and how he was going to fix it. Super personable and knowledgeable.”

– Sarah J.

“Quick and Professional service! The AC stopped working at our rental property and it is in the 90’s. Ryan was there within the hour and had it diagnosed and repaired the same day and the AC is as cool as the day it was installed. Ryan and Sara were great to work with, I definitely be using them again!”

– Tyler E.

“Our 22 year old Carrier AC stopped cooling in June 2020. After doing extensive research into repair costs, brands, installation methods (from DIY instructions and manuals), available rebates and reading a number of blogs on key topics I was ready to select the brands that would provide reliable operation for years to come. While doing research I came across Day and Night, which is owned by United Technologies – one of their best-known brands is Carrier. Day and Night came highly recommended by independent HVAC installers (those that install and service all systems and don't only stick with one or two brands) so it was added to the list. Arctic Mechanical is the top installer for D&N in our area. Next, I invited seven different installers on site to quote various replacement systems. I quizzed every installer with a slew of questions specific to the brand HVAC that they sell. I then requested they quote a replacement system in the basic, medium and high efficiency categories (due to varying efficiency-based rebates from our utility providers). Most of the installers, did not walk around the house – they simply wrote down what we had and quoted the same capacity systems. From what I read, every replacement installation should be approached with a manual J calculation to verify that the unit is sized right. So companies that don’t perform the computation were disqualified immediately from our list or potential vendors. Ryan C arrived and differentiated himself from the other installers right away: he requested a quick look at all the rooms in the house before going to see the furnace unit in the basement. After we arrived at the furnace he told me that he thinks our system is over sized for the house and we probably should get a smaller unit this time around (he mentioned that they always do a manual j calculation to confirm). We had a very nice discussion on how units are sized – which aligned well with what I read online during my research stage. He also caught all the issues that the other installers identified and found a couple more. Ryan is thorough, honest and knowledgeable. When providing the three quotes, he sent a manual J calculation confirming that the system is over sized – only him and one other installer performed the calculation and caught the discrepancy. The quotes came in very competitive on labor costs and I was able to install a higher efficiency furnace/AC at the cost of a medium efficiency Lennox unit (our other option based on the manual J elimination of rest of vendors). It was actually cheaper to install the higher efficiency D&N system than the lowest cost one due to how the efficiency-based rebates stacked. Ryan and Jesse installed the system over a couple of days. They were on time, wore masks, covered the carpets with cloths to avoid getting them dirty and left the area clean when they were done at the end of each day. Our house now feels much more comfortable with the correctly sized system since it runs a little longer and provides sufficient cooling/heating to the rooms furthest away from the furnace unit. Ryan's recommendation to keep the fan running 24/7 ensures that all rooms have very similar temperatures even when the furnace/AC are not actively heating/cooling. Our cooling costs went down and it appears that our heating costs are lower this year as well. Sarah submitted all the rebates in a timely manner and got us all the rebates available. She was also instrumental in answering a slew of questions about the quote/rebate process and handled all the scheduling. Arctic Mechanical truly came out on top when compared to some of the larger players in our area. Their service, quality and commitment to doing things the right way made them the clear choice for our heating and cooling needs for years to come.”

“Ryan was super friendly and fast to save my family from the heat. He is honest and goes above and beyond making sure you are educated and satisfied.”

– Stephanie D.

“I had Ryan come to my house to have my air conditioner checked. Why did I pick Ryan: I've know him since he was an infant and lived across the cul-de-sac from me. Knew the whole family so I wanted someone that I could trust to help me out. I had to wait a couple of weeks since I knew that he was busy. Sara called and we set up the appointment. Ryan arrived on time, explained what he was going to do. Very knowledgeable of what he was doing. Thanks for your help Ryan.”
