MECC has been in the residential arena for 87 years. In 1937, residential heating was all that our previous company Norwest Heating, Inc. did, considering that air conditioning had only been recently invented by Carrier in 1901.

Over the years, our family has been caring for the homes of countless friends & customers. We are not residential contractors that dabble in the commercial & industrial market, we are the real deal. We are blessed to care for the homes of many amazing people & are honored to do so.

Residential Replacement

MECC has partnered with Trane, to provide premium quality residential HVAC&R solutions. We have everything from the builder’s series systems to the most elaborate, super high efficiency equipment available. Each home has a different need or goal & “nobody does it better” than MECC & Trane.

Usually, we can have your equipment changed out in a day or two. Energy efficient upgrades, enhanced zoning, remote controls or “smart” systems, in floor radiant heat, garage or barn heating systems, the sky is the limit. How can we help?

Custom Homes

Since the very beginning, we have been servicing homes of all types & sizes. We do enjoy the privilege of caring for the homes of some very blessed customers. We cherish & enjoy our many long-term client relationships.

We do understand our role as humble servants and we often serve as both caretakers & security. Many of our client homes resemble castles or function more like commercial buildings, but we understand large & complicated systems very well, so that you don’t need to.

At Norwest & MECC, we have always known that it truly is “Hard to stop a Trane”. We can replace or service everything HVACR, provide maintenance and look after all your mechanical needs, even when you are away. Caring for others is our life’s mission, & what we do.

With some automation technology, we can let you observe or even operate your critical systems from almost anywhere. Worry not over the holiday or your time away, the MECC maintained homes will have power & comfort! Your peace of mind matters & it is important to the MECC team.

In-Floor Radiant Heat

It does feel good to step onto a warm floor when you get out of bed. It is super nice to not have to shovel the snow & ice. It is amazing to work under equipment on a warm & dry floor. What else can we say?

The original & best form of heat was boiler radiator & baseboard technology. It still is and many do not have it but you can, if we plan wisely early on for your construction & renovation projects.

However, a well performing & energy efficient system is not inexpensive. Low bid & high quality can rarely be utilized in the same sentence. If you have it, try to keep it. If you do not, let’s talk.


If a reliable power supply is important to you, we have the answers. From small home generators to very large industrial power supplies, we do it all.

With CAT, Generac and others, we can ensure that you have reliable power & monitoring 24×7×365.

We will coordinate “keep filled” fuel supplies during emergencies & provide turnkey solutions during storms & power outages.

We furnish & install rollup power connection points, manual & automatic transfer switches to monitor the utility power & switch over to backup power, as needed.

Wine & Cigar Vaults

Now that we have everything “comfort” cared for, we can also keep your favorite wine & cigars, just perfect.

We build & maintain the private vaults & storage rooms, for some amazing people. Just let us know what space that you are dreaming of & we will make it become a reality.
