Let’s be honest, you’ve always thought that air conditioning maintenance was optional, right? After all, it’s advertised like that everywhere. You could join our maintenance program, but you don’t have to. We think this is false advertising and a norm that should be changed.

Air conditioning maintenance is optional in the same way that a check-up with the doctor every year is optional. It’s always a good idea and it can be vital in taking care of problems before they really start to cause damage. We want to change the way you think about air conditioning tune-ups in Livingston, LA. We want you to start thinking about this service like the mandatory one it is, rather than some optional service that doesn’t really matter.

We promise that after you hear about the benefits AC maintenance provides, you’ll be on the same page as us!

Which Certifications Matter in the AC Industry

June 22nd, 2020

We mention a lot on this blog about hiring a professional HVAC technician with the right credentials, but sometimes we don’t specify what those credentials are or what they mean.

Honorable Mention in HVACR Business Competition

June 12th, 2020

Vehicles are an important part of delivering quality service. When we drive from one end of town to the other, we’ve got to do it in style so that everyone can see who we are and what we’re about. That’s why it’s no surprise to us that we received an honorable mention in HVACR Business Magazine’s “Bright & Bold” vehicle design competition. The HVAC industry is a competitive one, which is why having the sleekest and most recognizable design on your trucks can take you a long way.

Our decision to upgrade our vehicle design and remain contemporary in the market wasn’t by accident. “We have 12 vehicles with the design, which cost about $3,500 each to do,” our owner, James Barras, said. “But people call in now just because they see the vans everywhere.”

As the judges said, our truck design is “simple, yet memorable” which is a great way to describe many of the services we offer. If you’ve been caught staring at one of our truck’s sleek designs, don’t just stop there! Give our team a call for whatever heating or air conditioning needs you might have.

When you need it done right, call Professional Heating & Air.

High Bills? Here’s Why

June 8th, 2020
ac-technician-and-client

Air conditioners run for long periods of time during the summer. They don’t just run on magic, in fact, they run on electricity that is paid for ultimately by you! Just like you have to fill up your car every now and then with gasoline, you have to constantly pay for the stream of energy in your air conditioner to perform its job.

That being said, air conditioners aren’t built to consume that much energy. They’re usually manufactured to consume as little energy as possible, depending on the SEER rating of said unit, which can leave you paying only a small amount for quality cooling. The more advanced technology gets, the more efficient our cooling systems become.

If you’re looking for additional ways to save on your air conditioning in Covington, LA then you’re going to have to look at why your bills are so high in the first place. Let’s take a look.
