Call Foulks to schedule your fall heat pump service

Your heat pump is integral to your home’s comfort, helping you stay warm during the winter and cool during the summer. While it’s still warm outside right now, you may not be thinking about a heat pump inspection in advance of the cooler months of the year. However, now’s actually the ideal time to schedule your fall heat pump service.

That’s because you really want a professional inspecting your heat pump before the weather changes and you need to switch the system over to heating. To schedule your service, call the professionals at Foulks. We’re proud to serve Amite City, Hammond, and Southeast Louisiana.

Heat pump service benefits

Here are some of the many benefits to having a Foulks technician perform a heat pump tune-up:

  • Avoid potential emergency repairs
  • Energy efficiency improvements in your system
  • Longer lifespan for your heating system

These benefits will all save you money, as well as a lot of headache and aggravation, later in time. Many people are surprised to find out the cost savings that can be associated with energy-efficiency and longevity of your system.

We can service all systems

We can provide service for all makes and models, no matter the brand or age of your system. Maybe you have a well-known brand, such as Whirlpool, American Standard, and Carrier. If you have a lesser-known brand, don’t worry. Our expert technicians can help you with whatever type of system you have.

All of our service technicians are certified by NATE (North American Technician Excellence), and independent body for HVAC standards. We take pride in these certifications and consider them an example of our commitment to excellence.

Why do I need a professional?

Some people may feel that they have the ability to examine their heat system, and perform any subsequent maintenance and heating tune-up needed. This is generally not advised due to the risks that it poses.

Professionals have the training, knowledge, and equipment to service your heat system safely and effectively. Performing maintenance yourself without the proper knowledge and tools could result in you doing further damage and having to pay more in repairs.

1. They have a solid reputation

Building a solid reputation requires time and consistency. Trane has patiently developed a reliable reputation over the years by consistently putting out great products. Their grateful customers have rewarded them by spreading the word that the Trane brand name can be trusted.

2. They have high online ratings

If you only like to buy something after looking at online reviews, you’re bound to be impressed by the Trane HVAC brand. It consistently appears in “Top 10” lists and other positive reviews covering the best HVAC brands available for purchase.

3. They cater to both residential and commercial markets

Some air conditioning brands cater to either residential or commercial market segments. Not Trane. Whether you need to heat your home or cool down a massive warehouse, you can find a Trane HVAC system that will get the job done.

4. They are selective about who installs their products

Even the very best HVAC systems won’t work very good if they aren’t installed properly. Fortunately, Trane is rather selective about who they allow to install their products. In fact, they call these people “Trane Comfort Specialists.”

We are proud to be your local Trane dealer, and we have extensive experience professionally installing Trane air conditioners and heating systems.

What are the benefits of replacing your older air conditioner?

Even if you have an older air conditioner that still works, you still might be better off starting to look into replacing your air conditioner.

Here at Foulks Heating & Cooling, we’re committed to helping you with your HVAC needs. In this blog post, we’ll review the reasons why you should replace your old air conditioner with a new model, professionally installed by our team.

#1. Eco-friendly

Much like older automobiles, older air conditioners aren’t as good for the environment as you might like for them to be. Less-efficient units can churn pollutants in the atmosphere, and there’s also the fact that replacing your AC can lower your energy bills as long as you select an efficient new model.

#2. Boost your home’s value

If you plan on putting your residential property on the market anytime soon, an air conditioner replacement can most certainly go a long way in boosting your resale value. The less work potential buyers have to put into a home, the more likely they are to make an offer. Upgrades make both selling and buying real estate that much easier.

#3. Longer lasting units

Something else to consider with a new air conditioner is that more current models last longer than older ones. There was a time when air conditioners didn’t last longer than a decade, but modern technology has made it possible for units to last much longer. That being said, your unit, no matter how old or new it is, can last even longer if you do a good job of taking care of it, such as scheduled maintenance and regular inspections done by professional technicians like ours.

#4. Better air quality

It might be that your current air conditioner doesn’t pour out air that’s as cool as you’d like for it to be. If that’s the case, a newer model is likely to offer you better results, which also saves you money.

Invest in your home, spend your tax refund on a new AC system this spring

If you’re like a majority of Americans, you’ll be receiving a tax refund this spring. And while many may plan to use their refund to pay down existing debt, buy new cars, or take a vacation, there’s another use for that money: investing in your home by upgrading to a new air conditioner.

In this blog, we’ll discuss the reasons you should consider a new HVAC system, and why you should call the trusted team at Foulks for a free in-home estimate here in Amite City and Hammond.

Use your tax refund to invest in your home’s value

Pictured: Calculator and pencil. If you've calculated and received a tax refund this year, consider spending it on a new air conditioner.If your home is being cooled by an old air conditioner that’s just getting by, that system may be acting like an anchor for your home’s value and curb appeal.

Think about it like a buyer: you have many upfront costs to deal with when you’re buying and moving into a new home. From the downpayment, closing, and moving costs to new furniture and decor, the last thing a new homeowner wants to deal with their first summer in the home is the air conditioner.

In fact, many prospective buyers may be turned off of a home they otherwise liked because of an old air conditioner. Here in Amite City and Hammond, the summers are too hot and humid to go without an AC. An older system can depress your home’s value and your curb appeal.

In fact, the real estate website Zillow lists “HVAC Upgrades” as one of the best home improvement investments.

Greater energy-efficiency, for years to come

Even if you’re not planning on selling your home in the near future, you can still benefit by upgrading to a new air conditioner using your tax refund. That’s because a new, professionally installed system, will make your home more energy-efficient, saving you money for summers to come.

As air conditioners age, they become less efficient. Old, worn parts don’t move like they once did, and new advances in efficiency mean that they’re being passed by newer models. If your air conditioner has been around for 15-20 years, it’s likely an energy hog compared to new Carrier and Trane systems.

Comfort, both now and later

Of course, the entire purpose of an air conditioner is to make your home comfortable. If your older system can no longer effectively do that, it’s time for an upgrade, and spring is a great season to have Foulks install a new AC unit.

Comfort matters. Along with the boost to your home value and energy-efficiency, it’s a compelling reason to consider spending your tax refund on a new air conditioner.
