The term “refrigerant leak” is probably one you never want to hear when you’re the owner of an air conditioning system owner.

Only a professional can tell the difference, and you will need to call for one no matter what.

Earlier in the summer, we had a blog post dedicated to detecting the signs that your air conditioner might be on its way to retirement. Still, we didn’t necessarily cover the topic as thoroughly as we could’ve. Air conditioning replacement in Mandeville, LA is a complex topic, and there are a lot of things that are going to differentiate each situation from the next. For instance, we’d argue that recent trends in inflation and certain markets have made it very difficult for homeowners to even think about replacing their air conditioners.
Well, when it comes to budgeting correctly, we’d like to talk about the “three rules” of AC replacement. Each of these deals with a concrete number that you can use in your budget calculations to determine if an AC replacement is going to be a smart or silly financial decision.
Just make sure you ask us about any questions you might have, or call us for a comfort consultation if you need more help.

Pipes can come in all shapes and sizes, but not all materials. Since the 1960s, different types of piping materials like lead and galvanized steel have been phased out due to their detrimental health effects and their inability to properly bring us water (or deposit wastewater). We’ve made some serious changes to the way we offer plumbing in this country, and using materials like copper, PVC, and PEX is just the start.
Before we get ahead of ourselves, we need to talk about the basics. How do you even begin to know when your pipes need to be replaced or upgraded? Sure, you could just call a plumber in New Orleans, LA like the ones on our team–but that might not be right for everyone. Some people want to know the signs of a degrading or outdated plumbing system, so they feel confident and know when to call for help.
