It’s no secret that buying a new HVAC system is a big decision and an even bigger investment. This is the step where you need to think about exactly what you want out of your new HVAC system. A few things that you should consider here are the climate that you live in, and what you need in terms of personal comfort inside of your home. Other things that can be taken into consideration include how quiet you want your system to be, how the system should adjust for the high humidity here in South Louisiana, and air quality concerns. Letting our tech know your preferences for each of these during your free in-home estimate will help us—along with precise measurements of your home—match you with the perfect new Trane or Carrier unit.


HVAC technology—and technology in general— is becoming more and more advanced with each year that passes. This is a prime reason why you should upgrade from your unit that was likely installed in the late 90s or early 2000s. Trane and Carrier both carry high-end, technologically advanced units that will save you time and money in the future.

An important factor to consider when choosing your next HVAC system is its SEER rating. The higher the SEER rating, the more energy efficient your new unit will be, which will—in the long run—save you money on your monthly energy bills. You can balance out the upfront cost of your unit by considering how much money it will save you over the year in energy bills.


This new HVAC system will last you many years to come. This is why we have partnered with Carrier and Trane to offer several industry-best systems. We also offer several different financing options through Carrier and Trane, with approved credit, to make getting a new HVAC unit that much easier.


Two of the best and main reasons you should be happy for upgrading your outdated HVAC system are the optimal comfort levels that your system will give you, as well as the incredible energy savings that it will be providing.
