3 HVAC Things You Should NEVER Try

Monday, February 1st, 2021

We know, this makes us sound like the resident party-poopers. How dare we come into your home and ruin all the fun by telling you what you shouldn’t do. After all, it’s your house, your HVAC system, so you should be able to do with it what you want, right?

Well, not really. For starters, if you’ve got a gas-powered heating system, it can be downright illegal to tamper with that if you don’t have an HVAC license. Along those lines, doing anything other than what a homeowner should do to their HVAC system could cost you thousands of dollars in repairs or replacements, and can be a generally irresponsible thing to do.

If you’re not a big fan of throwing money out the window, and you’d rather leave the important stuff up to an HVAC contractor in Mandeville, LA, then pay attention. We’ll tell you what you should never try to do for your HVAC system.

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.
