Making the most of the summer season by saving on your energy bills

Pool days, popsicles, and plenty of sunshine—that’s what summer is all about. There’s fun all around and free time for you and your family to spend with one another. But all that warm weather means you should be prepared to pay higher energy bills May through August. How can you enjoy your summer without worrying about the number on the thermostat? In this article, we’re offering you some great tips and secrets to save money AND enjoy the sunshine. Trahan’s Heating & Air Conditioning is ready to help with all your cooling needs this summer.

A homeowner uses a remote to adjust the temperature setting of their ductless air conditioner.

By adjusting your thermostat and air conditioner by just 1-2 degrees, you could start saving on your energy bills this summer.

Summer savings tips from Trahan’s

Here are 7 tips that can save you big this summer—or during any hot season of the year!

  1. Schedule an AC tune-up or repair: Instead of waiting for your AC unit to die, be a proactive homeowner and schedule a tune-up with Trahan’s! We can inspect your air conditioner and make sure it’s running at full power, bringing you the most in cool comfort. When you put off a tune-up or repair, you’re actually adding more potential problems to your plate. One appointment with our technician is all it takes to get your AC unit ready for the long, hot summer ahead.
  2. Monitor your thermostat: Don’t just set your thermostat to 65 degrees and call it good. You’ll face sky-high energy bills and regret it down the road—especially when you open that electric bill! Set a schedule for your indoor temperature and stick to it. For example, set your thermostat to a higher temperature (76-78) during the early-morning and late-night hours, and set it to a lower temperature (70-74) during the day if you’re spending time indoors. Most of all, plan ahead and don’t forget about your thermostat when you set it to a low temperature.
  3. Use floor fans: Before you press the down button on your thermostat, bring out a floor fan! While fans don’t actually cool the air in your home, they can make you feel cooler with using the same energy your AC would.
  4. Focus on light clothing/bedding: During the hot, humid months, wear light clothing and store those thick blankets away for winter. Use only light sheets and blankets on your bed. If you’re wearing a long-sleeved shirt and sleeping with heavy blankets, you’ll feel uncomfortable and you’ll be running to your thermostat more frequently.
  5. Keep your doors open: Keep all interior doors open to encourage airflow in between rooms. You won’t save hundreds of dollars doing this, but you’ll feel a difference! Try keeping your bedroom door open at night to avoid a hot, stuffy room. Don’t open up your exterior doors, because the hot air will rush in!
  6. Step outside: Don’t stay inside all day and make your air conditioner work harder than it has to. Take a break by going outside for a trip to the library, museum, mall, or park! Find a local swimming pool and visit often. If you’re traveling on a long summer vacation, make a home-energy plan for your thermostat that will save you money while you’re gone. A programmable thermostat can be a great help in this regard, but a house-sitter can also adjust your thermostat for you.
  7. Keep a professional team on-hand: You never know what cooling emergencies you’ll face this summer, even if all your home systems seem to be running fine at the start of it. That’s why it’s important to have a trustworthy HVAC team on call and ready-to-go. Trahan’s Heating & Air Conditioning has certified, friendly technicians who know how to diagnose problems quickly and fix air conditioners right!

More energy, more comfort

When you take the time to have your AC unit checked out by one of our techs, you’ll be on the road to saving money! After our tune-up, your system will function better than ever, which means your home will get cool without using extra electricity and putting in all that extra work. This energy efficiency will go a long way. An air conditioner that’s working smoothly means less headaches, fewer appointments, and more money in your pocket.

Work with a reliable cooling services team

At the end of the day, you want to remember your summer for all the fun times you had, not for the high electric bills you had to pay. Take some of these tips and incorporate them into your own home. Teach your family the importance of saving money and saving energy. Invest in a smart thermostat so you can control the indoor temperature even when you’re away from your home. And, most important, call the team at Trahan’s and trust our team with all your home cooling needs.

Strange AC noises that indicate you should call Trahan’s for service

For the most part, your air conditioner should operate pretty quietly when it’s running right. Some noise at startup or sounds associated with the shifting of the house aren’t all that unusual. However, if your air conditioner is making loud, repetitive sounds, there may be a problem. Here’s our guide to what strange AC noises could indicate—and when you need to call in the experts at Trahan’s Heating & Air Conditioning for service.

At Trahan’s, we offer 24/7 emergency AC repair service from experienced technicians. Call us for fast, reliable service here in Houma and South Louisiana.

If your system is making strange AC noises, call Trahan's for service here in Houma.These strange AC noises may indicate you need repair

1. Buzzing

An air conditioner unit may emit a gentle hum when it runs, which is entirely normal. What is not normal is a strange, loud buzzing or humming sound. This could mean there are loose parts, debris is inside the unit, an electrical issue, or a failing part.

Due to the range of potential reasons, it is best to call in an expert from Trahan’s Heating & Air Conditioning for repairs. That way, you can enjoy cool air without worrying about the unit failing during hot months.

2. Clicking

Strange AC noises like clicking may also indicate problems with the unit. This could be a sign of an electrical issue, like a defective thermostat, which should be fixed as soon as possible before it leads to other issues and costly repairs.

3. Squealing

A high-pitched squeal or screaming noise is a sign to call for immediate maintenance. It could be something like a malfunctioning motor or something more serious like a refrigerant leak that could lead to health problems in your home.

To protect yourself and your family, the best course of action is to call a professional. Then, once the problem has been fixed, you can safely use the AC unit again.

4. Banging

Lastly, loose parts are often translated into strange AC noises like clanking or banging. If a part if broken or loose, it may rattle around inside the unit. It could also be a sign you need a new compressor.

If left untreated, these situations could lead to more serious problems. To avoid that, call a professional at the first sign of trouble and schedule routine maintenance for an AC unit that functions properly.

Schedule AC maintenance today

Strange AC noises could indicate both minor and major problems with your unit. To keep your family safe, your air clean, and your home comfortable, call us today to schedule AC preventative maintenance or repairs.

Why sign up for an HVAC maintenance program?

When it comes to HVAC systems, what you don’t know could hurt you. Your heating and air conditioning systems are at their best when they operate efficiently and effectively. The best way to ensure that happens is by joining a HVAC maintenance program. Here in Houma and South Louisiana, join the Silver Club here at Trahan’s Heating & Air Conditioning.

Join our Silver Club and save money this summer as part of our HVAC maintenance club.What are the benefits of joining our HVAC maintenance program?

Here are just some of the reasons that you should consider joining our Silver Club:

#1. Save money

With a complete maintenance program, you’ll save money in a variety of ways, including:

  • Increased energy efficiency
  • Fewer breakdowns
  • Extended warranty

With both heating and air conditioning maintenance programs available, you’ll find these savings can happen year round.

Major repairs cost far more than minor tune-ups. The best way to avoid these costly repairs is by keeping up on regular maintenance. For some air conditioners, you’ll even extend the manufacturer’s warranty by signing up for a maintenance program.

#2. Save time

Some steps of HVAC maintenance are best left to professionals, while others can be performed by homeowners themselves. Of course, inspecting, cleaning, and removing filters on a regular basis falls in that latter camp, but can be time-consuming and easy to forget.

Let the professionals at Trahan’s Heating & Air Conditioning handle the routine maintenance of your HVAC systems. This will not only ensure that everything is inspected, cleaned, and handled properly, it will also take another task off your monthly to-do list.

Even the best HVAC technicians take time to repair or replace your air conditioner. A major breakdown can cost time and money as you wait for parts to be ordered and repairs to be completed.

#3. Keep your summer days cool

Over time, your air conditioner or furnace can become less efficient. This not only results in higher energy bills, it could also leave your home uncomfortably hot or cold. Here in the South Louisiana summer, you want your air conditioner running at its best.

Keep your home conditioned comfortably during hot summer days and chilly winter nights. Regular HVAC system maintenance allows you to enjoy reliable heating and cooling without worrying about mid-seasons breakdowns.

Is a ductless cooling and heating system right for your home?

One of the most-popular HVAC systems installed today is the ductless system. Also known as “mini-split systems,” these are wall-mounted, energy-efficient units capable of both cooling your home in the summer and heating it in the winter. Also, as the name implies, these systems don’t require existing ductwork, which makes them a great fit for any space, but especially home additions, garages, separate suites, and more.

Interested in learning more about your ductless options? Be sure to give our team here at Trahan’s Heating & Air Conditioning a call to learn more about the Carrier and Trane systems we install, right here in Houma and South Louisiana.

Save space, save money

If your home doesn’t have existing ductwork, getting it installed can be both invasive and prohibitively expensive. This is where ductless is a great option: not only are these systems able to provide your home cooling and heating without ductwork, but they’re also more efficient at doing so. That’s because traditional HVAC systems waste a great deal of energy just transporting heated or cooled air through air ducts to the living spaces of your home. Ductless indoor units are right in that living spaces, which means lower energy bills for you.

Most Carrier and Trane ductless systems are wall-mounted near the ceiling, which means no space is lost in your home. Multiple indoor units can be linked to just one outdoor unit—this is where the concept of “mini-split” comes from.

Ductless systems are versatile. Just like a heat pump, they can cool your home down in the summer and then heat it in the winter. This eliminates the need for a separate heating system in your home.

Zoned heating and cooling

Mini-split systems with multiple indoor units in different rooms can cool and heat each of those rooms independently. As a result, this means you can control each of your rooms independently from other rooms or the rest of the home. Spending time with the family in the kitchen? You can turn on the cooling in that room without needing to cool down the rest of the house. As you might have already guessed, this can lead to some amazing savings without sacrificing your indoor comfort.

Why you should schedule an indoor air quality test

Homeowners spend a lot of time and money to make sure they take good care of their houses, but they may overlook what they can’t see: the quality of their indoor air. Since people spend so much time indoors, you should be able to trust that your indoor air is safe to breathe. That’s where an indoor air quality test comes into the picture.

An indoor air quality (IAQ) test can identify any impurities that may be polluting your home and affecting you and your family’s health. This article has some reasons that you should schedule indoor air quality testing and air duct cleaning from the team here at Trahan’s Heating & Air Conditioning.

To find out what's in your home's air, schedule an indoor air quality test from our team.Be on the lookout

You may be surprised by the variety of particles that you’ll find in your home’s air. Some of the pollutants come from the outside, such as dirt and pollen, but there are also materials in your home that also negatively impact the air quality.

Chemicals from varnish and wax, formaldehyde from carpeting, and even cleaning products can linger in the air. Some of the other indoor air pollutants include:

  • Pet dander
  • Dust mites
  • Mold and mildew in bathrooms or basements
  • Rodent or insect droppings
  • Pesticides

Radon

Radon, a radioactive gas that can come from the soil, is also a serious concern in some regions of the country. Because it is odorless, you are not able to detect its presence on your own, which is why you’ll need to have a professional test your home for it.

Why it matters

People who suffer with allergies understand the importance of having an indoor air quality test, and so should you. Many of the chemicals and other pollutants can cause respiratory problems, especially in young children, elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.

Some of the gases can also lead to headaches, nausea, confusion, and possibly even death. An IAQ test can determine which particles are present in your home so you know what steps to take to have them removed.

Contact Trahan’s to schedule your indoor air quality test

Don’t put off your indoor air quality test one more day. At Trahan’s Heating & Air Conditioning, we can help you with air testing as well as other services for your home. Give us a call today to schedule an IAQ test and start breathing easier.

Breathe easier and feel better with clean air ducts

For homeowners, their air conditioning units, heat pumps, and furnaces are top-of-mind, since they can see them working and turn them on seasonally. But, what about the part of your HVAC system that’s in use all year round? Your air ducts need attention, too, and if you’ve been passing on air duct cleaning for years, you could be seeing worsening indoor air quality. In contrast, clean air ducts can help your home be easier to breathe in.

In this blog, we’ll review a few reasons why you should call the professionals at Trahan’s Heating & Air Conditioning for air duct cleaning and indoor air quality testing.

Better air quality

Your HVAC and air ducts recirculate the air in your home, and you may be surprised by the pollutants that air contains. It is not unusual for indoor air to contain particles of:

  • Pollen
  • Dust and dust mites
  • Dead skin cells
  • Pet dander
  • Mice or insect droppings
  • Bacteria

Having any or all of these in the air of your home is actually quite normal, but—at the same time—you probably do not want to be inhaling these pollutants on a regular basis.

Reduce your symptoms

Allergies and asthma can develop at any age, and if you or anyone in your family suffer from these or other respiratory conditions, you know the importance of having clean air to breathe. Some people may find that the air in their homes is what causes their difficulty breathing.

After you have your air ducts professionally cleaned by the pros at Trahan’s, you may feel some relief in your respiratory problems. You can literally breathe easier because those allergens in your home may be eliminated.

The sweet smell of success

Another reason to have your air ducts cleaned is to remove odd or unpleasant odors from your home. With a buildup of dust and dirt in your air duct system, these odors can be trapped, leaving a lingering odor that does not go away even after you have cleaned.

If you have noticed excess dust on your air filters or around your vents, you can imagine what the inside of your air ducts looks like. Clean air ducts mean a cleaner—and better-smelling—home from the inside-out.

Keep it dry

A humid climate or major plumbing leak may mean you are more likely to have a mold problem in your home. Air duct cleaning can remove that extra moisture that may accumulate and encourage mold growth. It might also be a good idea to talk to your Trahan’s technician about a dehumidifier for your home.

Call Trahan’s for air duct cleaning here in South Louisiana!

There is no time like the present to have clean air ducts! Contact our team here at Trahan’s Heating & Air Conditioning to schedule your cleaning, both for clean air and peace of mind.

Here are the 4 benefits of a variable-speed air conditioner

Summers here in Houma and South Louisiana can be unbearable—and even dangerous—without dependable air conditioning. However, if you’re looking to install or replace an AC unit, it’s important to remember that not all units are equal. You might want to consider a variable-speed air conditioner.

The air handler in a traditional air conditioner only blows air at one speed: high. A variable-speed air conditioner, on the other hand, can run at different speeds. This small difference leads to a multitude of benefits for users of variable-speed AC units. In this blog post, we’re going to review these in greater detail.

For a free in-home estimate on a new air conditioner, contact us today.

Benefits of a variable-speed air conditioner

1. Energy-efficiency

Because a traditional air conditioner has one speed, it turns on and off to manage the temperature. This can use a lot of energy, and can mean higher costs.

An AC unit with a variable-speed air handler has more options to manage your home’s environment. Once your home is cool, it can drop to a lower setting to keep your preferred temperature and not use as much energy.

2. Cooling consistency

The variety of settings also means that your home’s temperature may not fluctuate as much as with a traditional unit. A traditional unit switches on once the temperature rises, runs until the temperature drops to the set number, then stops. Then, the temperature rises again, and the cycle begins all over.

This constant change can be uncomfortable. In contrast, a variable-speed air conditioner can better maintain your preferred temperature by switching to a lower setting once the ideal temperature is reached.

3. Operating quietly

Traditional AC units kick on with a roar of air that continues throughout the cycle. This is due to their high speed, and this sound can be irritating or startling if especially loud.

In contrast, variable-speed units are much quieter because of their lower speeds—and because they turn on-and-off less frequently. This means no more annoying background hum or sudden rushes of air.

4. Air quality improvement

Longer and less frequent run cycles not only mean better energy-efficiency, better temperature control, and quieter operating noise. They also mean your home’s air quality may improve.

When the air conditioning runs, air passes through filters, which means the longer it runs, the longer the air is being filtered. This can be especially useful if you live in a dusty or high-pollution location, or have allergies.

What are the major signals that you need summer AC repair?

If you see signs you need summer AC repair, don’t ignore them. Having air conditioner problems during the hottest and most humid months of the year is not only frustrating, but can actually be dangerous. That’s why Trahan’s Heating and Air Conditioning provides 24/7 AC repair services whenever you need them

Recognizing the early warning signs of AC trouble can help prevent a minor problem from becoming major. Contact us when you see any of these five signs of impending summer AC repair.

Here are 5 signs you need summer AC repair

Warm air or insufficient cooling

Probably the most obvious of summer AC repair signs is that the air coming from the AC isn’t cool, or at the very least, is not cool enough. If the air conditioner isn’t keeping the temperature comfortable, that’s a blatant warning sign that repair may be needed.

Excessive noise

There is no such thing as a silent air conditioner, but unusual or abnormally loud noises from your AC, such screeching or rattling, are indications of a possible problem, such as a part that has come loose. Consult a skilled technician before the loose part causes further damage to your unit.

Increased utility bills

Not all summer AC problems are indicated by the evidence of your senses. Some are indicated by the cost of your utilities. If your electric bill is higher than it normally is during the summer months, that suggests that your air conditioner is not operating at peak efficiency and may be in need of a tune-up.

Decreased airflow

Maybe it’s not the temperature of the air that your AC is putting out but the volume. If you put your hand next to a vent when the air conditioner kicks on and the temperature feels cool but the flow is weak, that could be indicative of several potential problems involving the ductwork or the compressor.

Leaking fluid

Any sort of fluid leak in or around your AC unit is cause for concern. It could be refrigerant leaking, a potentially dangerous situation because of its toxicity. Even if the fluid is only water, that could lead to mold growth, which could have long-term effects on your family’s health. Don’t try to figure out what’s leaking yourself; call us for HVAC service immediately.

Call Trahan’s now for summer AC repair!

With Trahan’s Heating and Air Conditioning providing repair services 24-hours-a-day, there’s no need to hesitate. Contact us the moment you notice any signs of AC trouble, need an AC installed, or are just in need of a tune-up.

Here’s why we’re a Trane dealer

The heating and cooling system of your home is vital to your comfort. Whether it’s a hot and humid day in the Louisiana summer or when the winter winds come blasting off the gulf, you expect your HVAC unit to work appropriately. We’re your local Houma Trane dealer, and here’s why.

Trane products are built to last

Trane was founded in 1885. In the 1930s, Trane pioneered air conditioning units for cooling homes. The company owns patents on their HVAC and heating units. They’ve tested the units for reliability and durability. Many of the individual parts on a Trane AC are built to last beyond industry standards. Trane is a company that has innovated the industry.

Trane products are built to last. The company tests every heating and cooling unit beyond the extremes of residential use. That’s why their motto is, “It’s hard to stop a Trane.” Technicians have tried to break the Climatuff® compressor in 900 different ways.

Trane is also setting the standard for smart home and clean air technology. The XL18i Heat Pump has a SEER rating of 18, well above the minimum standard of 14 or 15. It offers increase efficiency to lower utility bills. Trane also has an advanced air filtration system that provides cleaner, healthier air inside your home.

Trane products are recommended by experts in the industry. Popular Mechanics awarded Trane for its innovation with the Trane ComfortLink. Harvard researchers independently evaluated several devices that improve indoor air quality and found Trane CleanEffects to the most effective air filtration system.

Here’s your checklist for buying a new HVAC unit

Before you replace your old unit, make sure you really need to upgrade:

  • How old is your system? Your furnace should last about 12 to 18 years with good maintenance, while the AC may only last 10 to 16 years.
  • Consider your energy costs and future energy needs for your home. Do research on a new unit and whether it can help lower costs.
  • Contact Trahan’s, your local Trane dealer. Discuss the unit that fits the size of your home and energy-efficiency requirements.
  • Shop for and have a new unit installed. Enjoy the comfort of your home.
