Summer is in full swing, but with the way things have been the last few years, we might still be sweating by the time Christmas arrives. Just last May, Louisiana experienced its second hottest day in over 70 years.
For a homeowner with central air conditioning, it begs the question: are you and your family prepared to ride out the heat? If your goal is to stay comfortable even during the worst temperatures this year, we have a few ideas that can help.

There’s a big misconception about the capability of portable generators. Mainly, that they’re not nearly as capable as people think they are. The reason for this could be due to the gap between portable generators and whole-house generators; the portable option sounds more affordable and “good enough” when you finally need it.
However, this couldn’t be further from the truth. When it comes down to a true emergency, a whole-house generator will quickly be realized as a wise investment. Portable generators do have their uses, but they’re truly only for an as-needed basis. They simply can’t offer the same level of reliability and function that a whole-house generator can. Below are a few reasons why.

If you’ve done your research before installing air conditioning in Walker, LA, you may have become aware that there are two popular options to consider:
Heat pumps and central air systems.
Both systems can be configured to give you efficient heating and cooling, but depending on your existing setup, it’s best to go with one instead of the other. In this post, we’ll look at the differences between them to see which works best for you.

Efficiency is all about two things: time and money.
And when it comes to air conditioning, all everyone ever talks about is efficiency. After all, inefficiency can add dollar signs to your monthly energy bill.
It’s no surprise, then, to find out that homeowners have come up with some clever ways to try and beat the efficiency game. But the truth is that they’ll only do more harm to your wallet in the end.
To clear up the fact from the fiction, we present three myths about air conditioning efficiency.

Summer arrives, and every homeowner has the same fear: What if the AC breaks down? Some problems you can ride out until help arrives, but everybody’s miserable when a home unexpectedly turns into a relentless sweat lodge. One sign of trouble is an AC leaking water. But what exactly does this mean? Is it time for a new system or is there an easier – that is, less expensive – fix available? We’ll go over the most common causes of this problem as well as your best options.

If you live in an area that frequently experiences strong storms and possible power outages, it’s a good idea to have a whole-house generator for backup in case the lights go out for an extended period of time. What you do not want, though, is to go turn on that generator and find out that it’s not running right (or won’t start at all). That’s why, just like everything else in your house, your whole-house generator needs maintenance and upkeep on a regular basis.

As a homeowner, what’s your biggest fear? Is that you won’t be able to keep up with payments? Or that your home is safe and secure for your loved ones? Or perhaps it’s a fear that something will go wrong and you won’t know ahead of time.

Commercial HVAC services are as important as residential HVAC services here in Louisiana. Our summer days are long and hot, with a high amount of humidity thrown into the mix. It’s bad enough when we’re home, but most of us spend our days in a commercial space such as an office building or small business site. Commercial HVAC systems may have specific needs that should be met, such as the ability to run industrial refrigerators in restaurants. And if you own a business or manage an office space, you need to move quickly in the event your system runs into trouble.

Summers come early and stay late in our neck of the woods, and when the temperatures start to rise, your air conditioner is as vital to your home as the electricity or the plumbing. Breakdowns, when they come, tend to arrive at the least opportune time, and often leave you scrambling to get the problem fixed in the midst of a dreadful heat wave.
Our team moves swiftly and can respond to repair calls very quickly when they’re needed. But we also believe that an ounce of prevention beats a pound of cure. An air conditioning service session now, before summer heat has really begun, can help lower the risk of repairs.

Spring comes early in our neck of the woods, even if the calendar says otherwise. Chances are, you’ve been running your air conditioning for a little while now, and your heating system is likely finished until next fall. That means now is a great time to get it checked for repairs. Not every problem with your heating system results in a shutdown, and it’s always better to treat a big issue while it’s still pretty small. Before too much time passes, it’s probably a good idea to get it serviced.
