HVAC Maintenance Service in Tammany LA

HVAC Maintenance in St. Tammany, Orleans, and Jefferson, LA

Malfunctioning residential and commercial HVAC equipment takes a toll on the expected life of a system. Regular maintenance, like changing the oil in your automobile, can reduce the possibility of system failure.

Berner Air Conditioning & Heating is an established and licensed HVAC maintenance company that offers regular maintenance for residential and commercial HVAC systems. To reduce discomfort and other disruptions, our EPA certified technicians provide A/C maintenance services throughout New Orleans, St. Tammany, and Jefferson.


The HVAC system in your home is a significant investment that requires regular maintenance to stay in good working order. Regular HVAC maintenance is necessary and unavoidable because it helps keep household repair and energy costs low while also ensuring your air conditioning system operates efficiently.

It’s inevitable, HVAC systems in South Louisiana don’t get much of a break during the spring and summer. A lack of regular maintenance can cause your equipment to overwork because its components collect dust, organic growth, and other debris reducing airflow. And under-performing equipment almost always leads to higher electric bills.

To minimize HVAC problems, our technicians recommend the following:

  • Professional home cooling and heating maintenance twice every year.
  • Depending on your type of air filtration, you should change your air filters on a regular basis.


A/C Maintenance in Orleans, St. Tammany, and Jefferson parishes

To ensure that your commercial or residential HVAC system performs optimally, you should implement a preventative maintenance schedule. If your A/C unit and furnace have not been inspected in over six months, let Berner Air Conditioning & Heating’s EPA certified technicians take a look and determine whether repairing or replacing components makes sense.

Routine maintenance is critical for the dependability and efficiency of your air conditioning units, as well as, avoiding unexpected repairs. Preventative maintenance helps you keep your energy bills low and your home at a comfortable temperature.

Berner Air Conditioning & Heating provides preventative maintenance programs to help you get the most out of your air conditioning system. We can help you manage your energy efficiency in order to maintain the air quality and comfort in your home or office. Our HVAC technician will perform routine checks to ensure all components are functioning properly as part of our preventative maintenance program.

HVAC Tune-up in Orleans, St. Tammany, and Jefferson parishes

As seasons change, humidity levels in South Louisiana rise, causing condensation problems in your HVAC unit and ducts. To avoid water damage, you need to have professional preventive maintenance done on your A/C units, air handlers, and heating equipment each spring and fall season.

Regular preventive maintenance should include an A/C tune-up. Keeping this in mind, the change of seasons is the ideal time for a system tune-up. Our expert technicians in Orleans, St. Tammany, and Jefferson parishes will inspect your HVAC system and ensure that all functional components are working properly.

What's the Difference Between an HVAC Tune-Up & HVAC Maintenance? 

HVAC maintenance and seasonal tune-ups are pretty much the same, and both must be performed by a skilled professional. The most obvious difference is that seasonal HVAC tune-ups should be scheduled twice a year. Think of it as changing the oil in your car — not when your car breaks down, but to avoid breakdowns. Performed by an accredited technician, your system should run trouble-free throughout the seasons. Contact Berner Air Conditioning & Heating for seasonal HVAC tune-ups in the early fall and early spring of every year.

Early spring tune-ups are for your air conditioner, whereas, early fall tune-ups are for your heating system, such as the furnace, electric heater, or heat pump. Depending on the season, some highlights of our tune-ups include:

A Comprehensive A/C Summer Tune-Up!

Our Louisiana winter season doesn’t last long, so it is important to be proactive about preparing for the summer heat we know and love.

As we round the corner to spring, the Louisiana humidity increases, leading to condensation in your air conditioning unit. To avoid the risk of water damage, it is vital to prepare your A/C for the spring and summer months with professional maintenance.

With this in mind, there is no better time than the changing of the seasons to take advantage of an A/C summer tune-up. The professional technicians at Berner Air Conditioning and Heating are here to help Orleans, St. Tammany, and Jefferson parishes residents prepare your A/C units for summer with a multi-point inspection and tune-up of your system.

Are these services necessary for your cooling and heating system?

The truth is that preventative maintenance and seasonal HVAC tune-ups are critical for your system’s proper operation. Many homeowners choose to do these tasks themselves, but you will most likely notice an increase in your bills and annual maintenance costs as your system fails to function properly. Over time, you could notice major HVAC issues that may cause your system to fail and force early replacement.

Proper HVAC system maintenance contributes to better health

Aside from saving money on utility bills and avoiding future problems, HVAC tune-ups and maintenance can benefit clean air circulating throughout your home. This means improved health for people suffering from pollen and dust allergies, asthma, and other respiratory issues.
