- About Us
Once again, hurricane season is upon us. Though most meteorologists are predicting a mild year, it always pays to be prepared.
Ask a native of Louisiana, “Why’s my house so humid?” You’ll probably get a raised eyebrow and a look that says, “Are you serious with that question?”
While some may argue if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, that conventional wisdom does have some limitations. Often, in particular when it comes to technology and more sophisticated appliances, the average person doesn’t recognize problems in their early stages. By the time the problem manifests itself in ways that the lay person would perceive it, the cost of repair may be prohibitive. That’s why we recommend having your HVAC unit serviced annually.
The moment we moved out of the caves and into carefully constructed homes, humans have imagined ways to automate them. As early as the first century AD, Heron of Alexandria was experimenting with an engine that could automatically open and close doors. Though doing laundry is still tedious, imagine what it would be like without an automated washing machine, which didn’t make its appearance until 1908.
If you’re looking for an energy efficient air conditioner that can actually improve your indoor air quality, you’re in luck. From April 1 through June 15, 2015, Trane is offering a special promotion on certain systems. Rebates can go as high as $1,150.00 for XV20 system plus Clean Effects. Homeowners looking to upgrade their heating and cooling system can either get the rebates OR the 0% / 36-month interest financing.
Earth Day serves as a reminder that we could still do better when it comes to our carbon footprint. With historic droughts in California and receding coast lines in Florida, most environmentally conscious Americans recognize the need to make more energy-wise choices. While large-scale changes may be the domain of government agencies like the EPA, the impact of individual households shouldn’t be underestimated.
While warmer weather is a welcome respite from flu and cold season, spring allergies affect more than 30 million people in the United States each year. March is the kick-off season for the offense team: a league of mold spores and tree pollen, and the only way to beat them is to prepare a good defense. If you’re one of the millions who suffers from allergies, you’ll want Air Scrubber Plus on your side.
Early settlers of New Orleans designed homes that were state of the art in managing summer heat. Banks of windows and transoms over doors allowed breezes to circulate. High ceilings allowed hot air to rise, keeping the lower parts of rooms cooler. They used the natural order of things to keep homes at bearable temperatures.
Everyone who takes a slice of King Cake at their downtown New Orleans office knows they’re picking up the next cake if they find the pink, plastic baby.
