What Our Customers Say

"Out of 4 HVAC companies that we dealt with during the -30 degree cold snap and our furnace breaking down, Abel far exceeded them all! All of their staff are friendly, understanding, and knowledgeable. They were upfront about pricing, arrived quickly, and were very pleasant to work with! We definitely recommend their services and will use them again!"

– Christine Bluhm

"Great service! Responded promptly on a VERY cold day. Identified the source of the problem, made necessary repair, AND explained what had happened. Will keep their contact information close and am happy to recommend them!"

– David Rubenstein

“As a facilities manager, I have real peace of mind knowing Fred is only a phone call away. He keeps our equipment in top condition, solves any equipment problems and works with me to keep our costs down. I can strongly recommend Fred and ABEL Heating and Cooling to any company if they value peace of mind in the mechanical operations of their facility.”

- Harold M

“The landlord had two different service companies look at the problem. Their solution was to add equipment for a cost to American Express of approximately $10,000. This was not an acceptable solution. Upon completion of ABEL Heating and Cooling’s detailed site analysis, it was presented to us that a simple modification would solve the problem vs. adding equipment. The recommendation from ABEL Heating and Cooling worked and saved American Express $8,000 on this one issue.”

- Joe Swanson – American Express Real Estate

Cooling FAQ

Is there anything I can check myself before I call you for service?
Yes. Make sure the thermostat is on and your equipment is getting power. There is a power switch on the furnace and a service disconnect on the air conditioner. Also, check your building’s breaker or fuse box. If all of these things are functioning properly and your issue still exists, you probably need to call for assistance.
Is ABEL Heating and Cooling locally owned and operated?

We sure are! Feel free to come out, have a cup of coffee and see us in person.

How often should my heating & A/C system be checked?
Annual check-ups by a qualified technician is recommended for proper efficiency. Get your heating unit tuned up in the fall, and cooling system tuned up in the spring.
(Humidifiers, air to air exchangers, etc. are also serviced during a “tune up”)
What can I do for my family members with asthma or allergies?
A good first step is to get a whole-house air-filtration system. The Lennox healthy climate system has been rated the best in the industry by a leading consumer advocates. Another great idea is to install a SteriLight™ system by Steril-Aire®. It destroys mold and microorganisms that might cause allergies in your home or building. ABEL Heating and Cooling is a member with the Indoor Air Quality Association and if you would like to find out more information on Steril-Aire® products click here.
What is HVAC?
The Acronym ‘HVAC’ stand for Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning.
Why is my upper floor so hard to cool in the summer?
Ductwork that moves the air throughout your home can be too small or could have been changed since the house was built. A technician can balance the system and with simple changes improve the efficiency of air exchanges throughout the house. If the AC is sized improperly we often see uneven cooling if it is too small and it can’t keep up or its too big it will shut off quickly and only the areas near the unit get cooled. New technology gives us terrific variable speed blowers that can improve temperature differences and be easier on your electric bill.
What is electronic zoning? What are the benefits?
An electronic zoning system divides your building into sections. Each section is given a thermostat. A building with proper zoning has a constant temperature in each room, saving money and energy.
Can I have central air conditioning if I have hot water heat?
Yes. However, it is best to schedule an HVAC certified technician to inspect your particular building and discuss your options.
Why are some areas in my building hotter than others?
There are two possible options: Your thermostat location and/or a problem with your ductwork. You’ll most likely need an HVAC certified company such as ABEL Heating and Cooling to help you remedy the situation.
What is a SEER Rating?
SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficient Ratio) ratings are assigned to air conditioners based on efficiency. The more efficient the air conditioner is, the higher the number.
What SEER rating should my air conditioner have?
Your air conditioner should be a 13 or higher to be a relatively efficient unit.
How can I regulate humidity when running the heater?
The humidity level can be controlled by a humidistat on a whole-house humidification system. One that has an outdoor temperature sensor is recommended. If you do not currently have whole-house humidification, we can help you to decide if this is a good option for you.
How humid should my building be?
During a Minnesota winter, 35% relative humidity is recommended.
Can I install central air conditioning in my old house?
Every home is unique. How the cooling system is designed changes from house to house. It is best for an HVAC company to take a look at your home and discuss your options.
It is 70°F outside and really muggy. What I can do to make my house more comfortable?
It is most likely the humidity is making you uncomfortable. The air conditioner, which relies on temperature, doesn’t run long enough to have a chance to dehumidify. Your options are to turn your thermostat down (which may make you chilly!) or consider a whole-house dehumidification system.
My air conditioner seems really loud. I hear it every time it kicks in. Is this normal?
Ideally, you do not notice your air conditioner when it kicks in. If proper installation practices were followed, and you are still hearing your AC kick in, there may be a problem that requires service.
