Unfortunately for consumers, air conditioners don’t last forever. This might not be much of a surprise, since nothing in the tech, home improvement, or HVAC industry lasts forever.

We replace our cars, our appliances, and even entire sections of our homes.
Your air conditioner is no different, and although you might want it to last forever, it won’t. That’s why having a team on hand to provide you with professional AC replacement in Covington, LA. A trusted professional is going to be able to point you in the right direction in terms of the replacement system, defining factors to consider, and budget constraints.

We get a lot of calls from homeowners who read some kind of “debunking” article about air purifiers in Hammond, LA. These kinds of articles, videos, and blog posts are pretty common lately because their primary intent is to open your mind about a certain piece of equipment or technology that you previously thought worked well. While we applaud anyone who looks at scientific articles and other research on their prospective devices, whole-house air purifiers are scientifically proven to work.
Portable air purifiers are tricky because they can sometimes be in over their head trying to purify all of the air in a large room or small home, but whole-home systems are specifically designed to treat the air in your entire house through the HVAC system.
So yes, an air purifier, especially a UV air purifier, definitely works. Keep reading to learn why!

This might seem like a pretty simple question, but the answer is anything but! Our climate is ho and, humid, with relatively mild winters, which means we get a lot of usage out of our air conditioners. Just like with the mileage on a car, the more you use an air conditioner, the more it deals with wear and tear until it finally breaks down and needs to be replaced. The hope is that your AC can last 10 years at least until it starts to deteriorate beyond repair.
The truth is that your air conditioner might last a different amount of time than your neighbor’s depending on a lot of different factors. This blog post is dedicated to highlighting those factors and making sure customers in our area know what to pay attention to when evaluating the condition and lifespan of their air conditioning in Walker, LA.

There is such a thing as waiting “too long” for AC repairs, as we’ll explore in this blog post. Sometimes, waiting too long can even lead to an early AC replacement, which nobody really wants.
