Save Big on a New Furnace

Monday, January 6th, 2020

We don’t talk often enough about rebates, tax credits, and other useful tools for our community in Shreveport to get the furnace work they require. The truth of the matter is, there are many reachable rebates supplied by the State of Louisiana in which homeowners are rewarded by purchasing an ENERGY STAR qualified model.

So, today we’re going to be taking a look at the many ways you can save on a specific brand or model of furnace for your home since these can be heavy investments and families aren’t always readily available to take the plunge. Instead of dreading furnace repair in Shreveport because of your ancient system that’s on the fritz, perhaps it’s a better decision to look into an affordable way to replace it with a new, more energy-efficient heating system.

A Boiler Could Be Right for You

Monday, December 23rd, 2019

While we might not experience terribly cold temperatures, we’re always looking for the most comfortable, affordable, and energy-efficient heating systems available.

Common Problems with an Aging Furnace

Monday, December 9th, 2019

i-have-a-headache-this-bigFurnaces don’t last forever. That being said, they last a pretty long time and often by the time our team is called, they’ve long passed the point of no return. While we wish there were easy clues to an aging furnace for homeowners in our area that don’t know much about them, it’s a little bit more complicated than that. Every aging furnace shows their age in a different way, and we’d like to provide a list of some common problems that signal your system is getting too old.

While heating repair in Shreveport, LA might be a great solution to this problem, it might not be the best solution. As furnaces get older, repairs get more expensive, parts get harder to find, and the system itself becomes more prone to repairs. While repairs could be cheap at the moment, a whole system replacement might be a more effective and efficient solution that will save you a lot more money in the long run.

Is Your Thermostat Costing You Money?

Monday, November 25th, 2019

Thermostats are a necessary component of your heating and cooling system. While they might sit on your wall and feel like the remote to your television set, they provide a unique service that can be overlooked by many homeowners. Thermostats are in charge of being the human connection—the temperature regulator that sends the signal you program to the complicated machinery down in your basement. If you’re noticing that the thermostat numbers don’t match the heat or cooling that’s coming from your air ducts, there could be a major problem at hand.

While many homeowners would overlook a thermostat problem, we implore you to schedule HVAC maintenance in Shreveport if you’re experiencing a dissonance between the numbers displayed on your thermostat and what’s actually being produced by your heater. That and the fact that an older thermostat could be costing you money.
