Madisonville, LA and other nearby communities have suffered massive devastation in the wake of the recent floods and homeowners are likely eyeing some significant repairs and improvements to their homes to bounce back from the damage. Your air conditioning system shouldn’t be left out of the equation, and while repairs may be possible for a damaged system, you can’t be sure of that with a disaster as large as this one. Now is the time to plan for air conditioning replacement, and the sooner you can move the better. Here are some things to keep in mind.
Call Your Insurance Company
Air conditioners and similar devices are usually covered under household policy and federal disaster relief funds may be applicable as well. We can work with your insurance company to handle the payments if it’s applicable, and can provide total clarity with all of the steps involved.

Your air conditioner needs to be sized properly, ensuring that it’s neither too powerful (which causes short cycling) nor under-powered (which won’t cool your home adequately). Your existing system is a good place to start, but if your home repairs involve things like more insulation or alterations to the structure, the specifics may change. This is why it’s so important to have a trained technician helping you make these decisions more easily.
A new system, once sized, needs to use energy as efficiently as possible. Even with homeowner’s insurance, budgets are likely to be tight around here for the next few months. The bast way to help your cause as far as the air conditioning goes is to get one with the highest SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) you can afford.
