3 DIY AC Fixes to Stay Away From

Monday, August 2nd, 2021

It’s no surprise that there’s been an uptick in DIY fixes on air conditioners in the past few years. With more people using the internet to find information, homeowners can easily come across tutorials and “quick fixes” complete with a whole guide and video to accompany them. It seems like the time of professional AC repairs is over, and anything can be done by a curious homeowner, right?

Absolutely not. DIY fixes can quickly become a hassle and even more costly than professional visits. Think about it, if you’re not experienced or trained, how do you know that you’re fixing the source of the issue at hand? How do you know you’ve got the right tools to fix a problem, or the right refrigerant to recharge your system? Just one minor slip up could lead to a completely broken down system and the need for expensive air conditioning repair in Mandeville, LA.

Let’s talk about what homeowners shouldn’t do in the HVAC world.

It’s AC Maintenance Time!

Monday, May 10th, 2021

It’s spring, and you know what that means! It’s time to get maintenance for your air conditioner. Since the invention of HVAC technology, springtime has always been a moment of investigation for the condition and effectiveness of an air conditioner. After all, the hot summer temperatures aren’t here yet, so we’ve got a little bit of time to figure out if there’s anything wrong with your system.

One of the biggest reasons to invest in AC maintenance that we’ll explore today is that it staves off air conditioning repair in Mandeville, LA.

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.

Heaters are not toys. When you risk neglecting them or performing some repair on them when you’re not qualified, the price is worth much more than some homeowners are willing to pay for. Toys, especially ones that are handled by toddlers and small children, are meant to be broken, whereas a heater is supposed to last as long as possible before it breaks.

Today, we’d like to inform anyone who was thinking of performing a risky maneuver or found some information online about ways to save money with space heaters—that these might not be as efficient solutions as you think. Saving money is always a good thing, but high risk, high reward procedures aren’t usually the best way to save.

So buckle up and let your local HVAC contractor in Mandeville, LA bestow some knowledge on common costly heater misconceptions.
