Minnick’s family owned business

William Minnick created the heating and cooling company in 1954. Then his son, Larry, took over. Like his dad, Larry also passed the business on to his sons, Rob and Rusty. They run Minnick’s today.

Rob and Rusty have the same commitment to customer service as their grandfather. William Minnick made sure customers were 100% satisfied with the work done in their home. Today, Rob and Rusty still put the customer first.

Smart Approach to Whole-Home Comfort
Whole-Home Comfort

Minnick’s is a pioneer in Whole-Home Comfort. At Minnick’s we focus on your entire house as a system, rather than looking only at your heating and cooling equipment. We believe your insulation, air sealing, and ductwork all play key roles in how well your home heats or cools.

A comprehensive energy audit is an inexpensive way to test your home’s performance. With the data, Minnick’s creates a Whole Home Action Plan to solve your performance, efficiency, and comfort needs.

Minnick’s is a BGE and Pepco approved Home Performance with ENERGY STAR contractor. Pepco and BGE customers qualify for a special energy audit rate of just $100 and also qualify for up to $7500 in rebates.

Minnick’s also backs up its HVAC installations with third-party verification. We’re one of the only Maryland HVAC companies offering this. With Minnick’s, you never have to worry with ENERGY STAR Verified HVAC Installation (ESVI).

After every installation, a third-party verifies the work, performance of the unit, and its efficiency. Even the most energy-efficient HVAC unit requires proper sizing, efficient ducts, and proper airflow and refrigerant levels to perform as expected. With ESVI, Minnick’s protects your Whole-Home Comfort and your investment in new HVAC equipment.

Certifications

NATE Certification

North American Technician Excellence (NATE) is the nation’s largest non-profit organization for certifying HVAC and refrigeration technicians. Founded in 1997, NATE certification ensures that each technician has expert knowledge of all heating, air conditioning, ventilation, and refrigeration systems.

BPI Certified

BPIACColorVert-100x126The Building Performance Institute (BPI) is the nation’s premier standards development and credentialing organization for residential energy auditing and upgrade work. We are helping build an industry, create a workforce, and support programs through professional certification, contractor accreditation, and quality assurance services.

As the nation’s leading building science accreditation organization, BPI focuses on efficiency retrofitting standards to certify professionals and businesses. BPI employs the “whole-house” approach, which views the components of a building (from the envelope to the attic to the basement) as correlating parts that affect the entire performance. This philosophy improves the energy efficiency of the building and the comfort, health, and safety of its occupants. All of Minnick’s technicians are BPI certified.

RESNET Certified HERS Rater

The Residential Energy Services Network (RESNET) is an independent, non-profit organization that creates the national training and certification standards for Home Energy Rating System (HERS) Raters and Home Energy Survey Professionals.

With a focus on new construction, RESNET certified HERS Raters analyze each component of a building – as well as each component’s relationship to the others – to determine if there are any energy inefficiencies or waste.

The Home Energy Rating System (HERS) shows for homeowners, builders, and architects a building’s energy efficiency rank. We will analyze a building and then assign a score. The scale, called a HERS Index, will rank a building anywhere from 0 (the lowest rating, which indicates a zero energy home, or a home that produces as much energy as it consumes) to 150 (the highest rating, which indicates that the home produces less energy than it consumes). Click here to learn more about HERS Ratings.

Why is a HERS Rating important?

HERS_Rating_System-100x40As the requirement of many programs and certifications, including ENERGY STAR, New Homes, Energy Efficient Mortgage (EEM), and Energy Improvement Mortgage (EIM), a HERS Rating is nationally recognized as the most trusted energy efficiency score for residences and commercial buildings.

Energy Star Certification

energystarENERGY STAR for Homes, a program created by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), is a type of energy efficiency certification that helps create a safer and healthier home for you and your family.
