New Orleans Heater Service, Repair and Maintenance Take On Greater Importance As Temperature Falls


Heating and Air Conditioning System Maintenance Tips

Following are a few things that are essential for you to look at when it comes to your heating and cooling system for fall readiness. Even though a thorough system check should be performed by a professional home heating and air conditioning company there are many things you can do on your own.
  • You should change your filter as often in the winter as in the summer. Once a month is optimal for smooth operation of your system.  The most highly rated filters are not necessarily the best for your system.  Equipment manufacturers recommend 1 square foot of filter per ton of air conditioning.  This allows the free flow of air into the system.  If your filter size is less than 144 sq. in. per ton consider using an inexpensive non-pleated filter.  If your filter size is at one square foot per ton you can use one of the new pleated filters.  Remember to change it once a month.  Use a filter that is highly-rated and right for your home situation. If you have pets or allergy sufferers there are filters to help with those along with many other types available.

Mini-Splits For New Orleans - Surgi's Heating and Air Conditioning



Ductless mini-splits offer unique advantages, especially when they’re used in construction where there’s no ductwork, an unheated cabin or home addition, for example. They’re a highly efficient and flexible system, and the technology is continually improving. One of the unique components in some ductless mini splits is the inverter compressor. Here’s how the inverter compressor works.

In standard A/Cs or heat pumps, manufacturers employ a one-speed compressor. When heating or cooling is needed, the compressor cycles on at full speed. Once the temperature reaches the pre-set level, the compressor shuts off. An inverter compressor runs at multiple speeds. Think of the standard compressor like a light switch: It’s either off or on. The inverter compressor is more like a faucet: You can twist the faucet handle just a bit when you need a trickle of water, or open it all the way for maximum water.

Because of the inverter compressors’ capacity to adjust its speed, its benefits include:

  • Efficiency – In the morning, to quickly get the home’s temperature where it should be for your daily activities, the compressor cycles on at high speed. Then it slows down to meet the home’s load precisely. This results in reduced energy consumption, as well as fewer energy-consuming starts and stops.
  • Quiet – When a compressor runs at a high speed, it tends to be noisy. Running continuously throughout the day at a lower speed makes for a quieter system.
  • Comfort – Because the inverter compressor responds to fluctuations in temperature with just the right operating speed, your home remains comfortable throughout the day and isn’t subject to large temperature swings.
  • Life span – With fewer starts and stops, the compressor experiences less wear and tear, and it lasts longer.

Five Reasons Why An Air Conditioner Fails


Here are five main reasons for a system failure: 

1. Inadequate maintenance.  Dirty filters and air-conditioning coils can cause the machine to under-perform. 

2. Refrigerant leaks.  Air conditioners work most effectively and efficiently when the refrigerant charge exactly matches the manufacturer's specifications and is neither undercharged nor overcharged. 

3. Drainage problems.  When a drain is blocked, most systems have an emergency cutoff switch that prevents the system from cooling until the blockage is cleared.  

4. Electric control failure.  The compressor and fan controls can wear out, especially when the air conditioner cycles on and off frequently, common when a system is oversize. 

5. Sensor problems.  Central air systems have safety controls that shut the system down to prevent damage to the system if problems occur.  These safety switches can also sometimes go bad and need replacement.

Of course, you should have had the AC tested well before the start of hot weather. Too often we hope for the best because we think it saves money. So if your air-conditioning is operating just fine and dandy, you might want to make an appointment to check out the system before problems occur. Keeping costs down. 

Surgi's has appointments available for system inspections. Please don't wait until it fails.  If you suspect that your system is struggling or if there is water in your emergency pan call today.

Even if your air-conditioning is doing well, you probably are not enthusiastic about spending the arm and the leg needed to pay for comfort this summer. 

Owens Corning, the maker of that pink insulation, has these suggestions: 
A Nest Thermostat Programs Itself
Program your thermostat - Homeowners can save energy and money using a programmable thermostat with the air conditioner to automatically adjust the setting at night or when no one is home. Waiting to turn on the air conditioner when you return home won't cool your home any faster; it could result in excessive cooling and unnecessary expense. 

Shade your windows - Sunny windows make air conditioners work two to three times harder. Reduce air-conditioning costs by closing curtains on the south- and west-facing windows during the day. Window shades, blinds, or drapes will reflect heat away from the house. 

Insulate your investment - Properly insulating a home can help keep a home cooler during summer (and warmer in winter) and save homeowners up to $220 annually on energy bills. The attic is the easiest and most affordable place to add insulation to a home. 

Weatherize - Air leaks can lead to wasted energy and spending. Weather-stripping will keep cool air in during summer. Insulating areas around air-conditioning ducts in unconditioned spaces, such as attics, crawl spaces and garages, also will save energy and money.

Trane - 100 Years Of Excellence

Trane Assembly Line - 1950

After 100 years of reliability, innovation and countless technological and engineering firsts, history has made one thing abundantly clear: It’s Hard to Stop a Trane. Today Trane, a brand of Ingersoll Rand (NYSE:IR), marks the beginning of a yearlong celebration honoring a century of exceptional service, premium quality and unrivaled reliability, even as it continues to stretch the world‘s idea of what‘s possible for the future.

"Since the beginning, Trane has been obsessed with building heating and air conditioning systems. Today that passion lives on, making us the most recognized brand in the industry for equipment durability and reliability.1 Now, as we reach our 100-year mark, we‘re proud to continue that legacy of innovation every day, in everything we do. There‘s still excitement in the air," said Jim VerShaw, chief engineer, Trane.

Innovation From Day One

In many ways Trane is a classic American success story that grew the company into a global icon. In 1885, founder James Trane opened a plumbing shop in La Crosse, Wis. Inspired by the area‘s cold winters, he invented the Trane Vapor Heating System. His son Reuben, born in 1886, shared his father‘s inventiveness and grew up to be an engineer. Together, the two began manufacturing operations and incorporated The Trane Company in 1913.

Now, a century later, Trane is among the most preferred HVAC brands on the market. According to a 2012 priority research survey, Trane touts the highest satisfaction among homeowners of any HVAC brand on the market, as well as the most reliable, longest-lasting and highest quality equipment on the market.                                         Reprinted from Trane Corporation

Surgi's Heating and Air Conditioning has been a proud Trane dealer for 49 years.

Customer Review - Surgi's Heating and Air Conditioning, New Orleans




" The air condition in my rental home went out on Tues April 2nd, & I called Surgi's on Wednesday afternoon after work to get a quote on replacing the old unit in my rental home, as well as the unit in my own home that had been giving me trouble.  Within 2 hours, Art Boudreaux, the salesman was at my house.  This might not sound like a big deal, but I had called 2 other places & they could not come until the next day.

Art went over my options with me with great description, & then left.  I had told him I would contemplate whether I would accept or not.  What I liked most about this exchange, was that Art did not push me one way or the other.  I have been doing slight renovations to my home over the last few months, & have had experiences with pushy salesman more than once.  It was a blessing to have someone just say, "Hey, its on you, think about it and let me know".  At one point he even advised that I downgrade from the 4 ton unit I had in my downstairs, for it was too big for the space I had.  In other words, he was looking out for what was best for me & not necessarily trying to make extra money on me.  That is how customer service
