New Construction: Should I add an A/C coil for the future?

We see this more and more.  New homes are going on the market with a line-set installed and  air conditioning coil installed.  Often marketed as Air Conditioning ready, Contractors and real estate agents like the solution because it offers a perceived increase in value for the buyer.

There is more to the story.  Some of this thinking really depends on what you want to do when you actually buy the outdoor unit and have it installed.  In other words, what would your goals be for efficiency, overall cost, adaptability to new technology, etc.  Here’s how it breaks down.

  • If all your goals align and the answer is weighted toward low overall cost.  It will save you some money if you go ahead and have the coil and line-set installed during rough in.
  • If you are the person who weights the efficiency side and new technology higher, consider waiting until you are ready to do the install.  You will likely have more flexibility with new products and more available high efficiency matches to your furnace and coil.

As always, you can can ask anyone on the Mountain Sheet Metal team for help in wading through this decision.  We are proud to have a team who listens and can be creative with solutions.

Welcome to the Mountain Sheet Metal Blog!

Hello everyone!

Please come back and check out our new blog project.  Our goal is to write short bits on the variety of solutions we see out on the marketplace and try to make some sense of them for you.

There really are so many opinions and designs floating out there.  This can be good, and we know it can be overwhelming when you are trying to make the best decision for your budget, family, or business.

First, we’ll tackle some of the local considerations that are unique to southwest Montana like humidification, ventilation strategies, indoor air quality, summer smoke, etc.   Later, we can dive into some of the more broad topics of system types and so on.

I’m looking forward to getting some of this info written down.  If you have questions, please ask them and I will write a ‘Heated Rant’ about it.

Mountain Sheet Metal announces the launch of their new website dedicated to heating and cooling equipment.

“We wanted to upgrade our web presence, of course, but our main goal was to more clearly state what sets up apart as a company. There are new technologies – green technologies – that are transforming our industry, like the ductless heat pumps by Mitsubishi and the variable speed condensers offered by Trane. We want to make sure that our customers are aware of this energy efficient, cost savings product that has revolutionized our industry. We are so pleased that the companies who have teamed up with us keep striving to be the industry leaders in heating and cooling and we aim to be the leading provider of this technology.”
