Most heating systems in the area are gas furnaces, which are inexpensive and easy to keep running. They make a good fit for our warm weather and can provide reliable heat this time of year, when nighttime temperatures take a dip. Unfortunately, because our weather is so hot most of the year, homeowners tend to focus on their air conditioning systems, leaving their gas furnaces to suffer from slow neglect. Repair issues have a way of cropping up without warning in such scenarios, leaving you scrambling to get the system fixed just when you need it the most.
We can provide timely repairs for your gas furnace when called upon to do so, but we also believe that an ounce of prevention beats a pound of cure. That means that furnace maintenance sessions make a better way of dealing with your heater’s problems than waiting for a breakdown and rushing around. Ideally, you should schedule one once a year, and if it’s been more than 12 months since you last one, now is an excellent time to make an appointment. Here’s a quick look at how it works.

Air conditioners rarely have a real off-season here in Louisiana, and there’s always the chance that an unexpected heat wave will bring it into service again. By and large, however, winter temperatures are mild, which means it’s a good time to give your air conditioner a close look. Considering how often we use ours in this part of the world, it pays to schedule servicing sessions at least once a year, and if it’s been more than 12 months since you last one, now is the perfect time to set one up. What is a servicing session and why should you schedule one? Read on for the answers.

We’ve reached the end of air conditioning season here in Louisiana, but with our mild winters, you can never be sure when you might need yours to function again. The cool days of late fall and early winter make an excellent time to take stock of your system and schedule repairs if necessary. The same holds true for commercial air conditioning systems, which have more complex needs than residential systems and which need a high-quality service to keep them maintained. Reliability in such services is supremely important for the health of your business.

Here in Louisiana, air conditioning season is almost year ‘round, and while we get our share of cool weather, heat waves can hit almost any time of year. There’s a tendency during the cooler months to let problems with the air conditioner sit tight until the spring: relying on fans when things get warm and running the heater instead of the air. In most cases, however, this can be a big mistake. If you have a problem with your air conditioner, you shouldn’t wait until spring to get it fixed.

The weather has been growing steadily cooler for many weeks now, and as fall turns to winter, prudent homeowners are using their heating system more and more often. If you have an older heating system that may be on its last legs, now is the time to determine that. When a problem crops up with such a system, is it worthwhile to repair it? Or would that money be better spent on a replacement heater?

Autumn means cooler temperatures, even here in Lousiana, and that means that your air conditioner can finally take a break after a long hot summer. It also means that you should schedule a maintenance session for your air conditioner as soon as possible. Maintenance most closely resembles a tune-up on your car: it’s a chance for a trained technician to check for possible problems and let you get an early jump on them should any crop up. The aim is to help save you money in improved efficiency, but also to help prevent repairs further down the road. Here’s a little breakdown on how that works.

Autumn has officially arrived, bringing with it cooler weather and easing the workload on your air conditioner. This season was especially tough because of the recent inclement weather, and centralized air conditioners with outdoor components may have suffered a great deal of damage. Now is an excellent time to schedule a servicing session to assess the state of your system and plan for repairs. With older systems, another question arises: is repairing it worth the effort, or should repairs be balanced against the system’s age and the money better spent on replacing the old AC with a new one?

With high temperatures slowly abating and Louisiana coming out from under a devastating hurricane season, now is the time to take a close look at your air conditioner and determine if it needs any repairs. Even in situations where your home was spared the ravages of the weather, most air conditioners have been running for months on end without any sign of respite. That can take its toll and the sooner you address any problems the system may have, the better off you’ll be.

Most people in Louisiana are still assessing the damage caused by the unprecedented weather we’ve experienced in recent weeks. That comes on top of the arrival of autumn, which usually signals a time to get your air conditioner serviced. Proper servicing is all the more important this year: it keeps your air conditioner functioning, which is vital to maintaining your home’s comfort level and the health of your family members. The sooner you can schedule timely air conditioning service, the better off your home will be.

Labor Day represents the unofficial end of summer, and while that doesn’t mean we’re ready to turn off our air conditioners just yet, it does mean that you’ll need your heating system before too much longer. We recommend heating maintenance sessions every fall to help that process out. Scheduling a session now helps your system get ready for another winter of use, as well as heading off potential trouble.
