Our team of expertly trained technicians is ready to take on any challenge with your air conditioning system. We provide up-front pricing for repairs and charge by the job, rather than by the hour, which eliminates any guesswork.
MTB’s technicians are up-to-date on current trends in HVAC technology. We also have long-term relationships with a variety of suppliers, so we can secure the necessary parts for a job quickly and get your system up and running in short order.
The average life span of an air conditioning unit is generally between 10 and 15 years. If your current unit is around this age or even older, but is functioning, it may be time to consider an upgrade. Today’s best air conditioners use significantly less energy to produce the same amount of cooling as air conditioners from the 1990s or early 2000s. You may be able to save up to 30% on your energy costs by replacing your older unit with a newer, more efficient model.
You have many high-quality options. MTB recommends Lennox, Trane, and Carrier — the top brand names with the most efficient systems in the industry. Most of our new systems have received the Energy Star rating for high efficiency.
One size does not fit all. MTB’s comfort specialists welcome the opportunity to meet with you to discuss your individual needs and concerns. We take a scientific approach to the many factors that determine the system is just right for your home and your family. An air conditioner’s efficiency, performance, durability and initial cost depend on matching its size to the following factors:
- The size of your home and the number of windows
- The amount of shade on your home’s windows, walls and roof
- The amount of insulation in the ceilings and walls
- The amount of air that leaks into your home from outside
- The amount of heat generated by the appliances and occupants in your home
Please keep in mind that bigger isn’t always better. A larger air conditioner may not provide optimal cooling, or provide the best value. In addition to being more expensive in most cases, an air conditioner that is too large for a home may:
- Cause the system to cycle on and off more frequently, leading to decreased system efficiency and a wider fluctuation in indoor air temperatures, which produces a less comfortable environment and a reduction in moisture removal. Moisture removal is crucial for comfort in humid climates like the Carolinas.
- Use more electricity and create added demands on electrical generation and delivery systems
- Lead to increased wear and tear on the system’s electrical parts and compressor, decreasing the lifespan of the systemThe amount of shade on your home’s windows, walls and roof
No matter which air conditioner system you choose, we install it with care, to ensure that you will get the most efficient and comfortable operation for years to come.
