Being an AC company in Lafayette, LA means that there are hundreds of heating and cooling companies surrounding you. What that means is, there are a lot of Air Condition Repair companies in Lafayette, LA, and surrounding areas, that provide service in the same areas as our company does. That does not automatically mean that other AC companies near our business provide sub-par or bad service, often, it is the exact opposite.
Many HVAC companies are started by HVAC techs that have spent many, many years in this field. They have seen it all, dealt with it all, and repaired it all, and honestly, that’s part of what it takes to own a successful HVAC business, KNOWLEDGE. We’ve found that apart from the knowledge it takes quite more to have a successful HVAC business. Most importantly, it takes HONESTY, as well as TIMELINESS, and the drive to go ABOVE AND BEYOND for the customer you are serving. Not to mention, organization and professionalism. In a centralized area, where there are many companies just like you’re own, in order to grow, you have to provide something unique or valued.
Let’s start with a little background on Parish Cooling and Heating as a business. Parish Cooling and Heating is locally owned and operated by Jennifer Gutierrez, a native of Scott, LA, and Johnny Beasley, a native of Abbeville, LA. Parish is a full-service HVAC company based out of Scott, LA providing service in Lafayette, LA, and all surrounding areas. Parish provides HVAC services such as Air Conditioning Repair, Preventative Maintenance, Duct Cleaning, New Installations, and Change-Outs, as well as real estate inspections.
Both owners of Parish Cooling and Heating are family-oriented individuals. Johnny and Jen both have big families and the responsibility of providing for those big families. When Parish was started, Jen and Johnny had one main goal in mind, providing professional, high-quality service to their customers, but at an affordable rate, that wouldn’t cripple the household of a family already working as hard as they can to make ends meet in this economy we live in.
We all know how expensive Ac repair is and how unexpected it is when our systems do decide to break down. Both owners wanted to change the way everyone perceives Air Conditioning Repair Companies. “We don’t want to just make a quick buck, we want to leave a good impression behind.”-Johnny.
With the rise in prices, HVAC companies have noticed an increase in the cost of materials and equipment to complete repairs, installations, and other jobs. When deciding what price to charge a customer, material cost plays a huge factor, but so do other things like company overhead and manpower. The price of some services and repairs is ultimately out of the Business owner and HVAC technician’s hands. But, Jen and Johnny stand firm behind the belief that if you provide honest, dependable, professional, timely, and trustworthy service, you do not need to change an “arm and a leg” for services, because ultimately, by being a decent human being and helping another family in need, your business will grow. HIGH-QUALITY SERVICE AT AN AFFORDABLE RATE!
When choosing an AC company, there are a couple of factors to consider such as:
Experience plays a huge factor because having an HVAC technician come to your home for repairs who are inexperienced can ultimately cost you more money in the long run, and more frustration. Jen and Johnny both have many years of experience in the HVAC industry, and rest assured that any technician who is employed by Parish Cooling and Heating is experienced and trained properly in all things HVAC.
2. License and Insurance
A trustworthy AC company will be licensed and insured. You as the homeowner should rest assured that the company you hired is legit and chose the right avenues when starting their business. As a homeowner, you should not choose a company that isn’t qualified to conduct repairs on your air conditioning system. Parish Cooling and Heating is both licensed and insured.
3. Services Provided
When inquiring about service at an HVAC company, you should ask what types of services that company offers. A good company will provide more than one service, not just repairs or installations only. Parish Cooling and Heating provides many HVAC services, repair, preventative maintenance, air duct cleaning, installations, and real estate inspections.
4. Emergency Services
In Louisiana, we rely heavily on our cooling system to keep us cool during the hot summer months. Louisiana residents really value their air conditioners. Sometimes, waiting until the next day is not an option due to kids, family members with medical issues, pets, and ultimately, our comfort. You need to choose a company that offers around-the-clock emergency repairs for your AC system. Parish Cooling and Heating provides 24/7 Emergency AC Repair services.
Choose a company that fits into your budget, while understanding that cheap services are not always the best option. Going the cheaper route may ultimately end up costing you more money in the long run. Parish Cooling and Heating offers high-quality services at an affordable rate as well as financing options for customers who do not have the funds immediately available to make costly but ultimately needed repairs and replacements.
6. Word of Mouth
As the customer, when choosing an AC company for the first time, you should do some research. Using resources like Google, Facebook, Yelp, and Angi’s Leads (Home Advisor), you will be able to see reviews from other past customers of that business, and that will help you to make the right decision.
There are many important parts of HVAC systems: the condensing coil, the evaporator coil, ducts, the thermostat, etc. Ultimately, when choosing the right HVAC company, the technician should have the knowledge and experience needed to repair or replace any part of your system. Feel free to ask the technician many questions. A qualified HVAC tech should be able to answer all of your questions and provide an understandable explanation of what went wrong.
Parish Cooling and Heating values each and every one of its customers and promises to always go above and beyond for their benefit.
