What Kind of Refrigerant Is YOUR AC Using?

Monday, May 24th, 2021

Air conditioners depend on the use of refrigerant for the cooling process to take place. As it’s cycled from coil to coil, pressurized into a gas and a liquid, it moves heat around so that we can enjoy comfortable temperatures on the hottest days of the year. Without refrigerant, we’d still be relying on box fans and we’d probably be a lot grumpier throughout the summer.

That being said, refrigerant can be a touchy subject. For any homeowners who aren’t familiar, there are several different types of refrigerant and two of them are becoming household names. When it comes to air conditioning in Laplace, LA, there’s Freon and Puron, both different types of refrigerant that different homeowners depend on.

That being said, if you’re unsure as to which refrigerant your AC is using, or you’re unclear as to why there’s a difference, then we hope you’ll keep reading. There’s a big reason why homeowners should know their AC’s refrigerant type.

High Bills? Here’s Why

Monday, June 8th, 2020

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.
