Some sections of this walkway were dangerous and if not careful one could easily fall through.

The problem here was best described by our tech, “It was held on with tape!”

Ragnar and Pat work on an air handler, which is about to get lifted up and installed. The workers inside are shivering in the cold. Good thing Laponica Refrigeration was here to save the day.

It finally happened – Hell has frozen!

Laponica Refrigeration - Hell, Norway

By: Ole Andreas Haug

That is – Hell the city in Norway has frozen. According to my brother, who has been to Hell and back, visitors can take a train ride to “Hell” and, in plain good old English, be greeted by a sign that says, “Welcome to Hell.” In Norwegian we spell the religious underworld location as “Helvete”, so naming a city “Hell” was perfectly fine until English speaking visitors began to come. Then it became funny.

As Norwegian immigrants to the United States Laponica Refrigeration brings extensive knowledge on making things as cold as possible, circumstantially evident by our slogan: “We work in the heat, so you don’t have to!”

If you live in the Greater New Orleans area we recommend you visit our newly designed web page, request service, or browse our extensive list of photos on our blog About Laponica Refrigeration.

Can we fix it?


Poor Bob the Builder… Poor Ford 🙂 Lucky for us he was not talking about Laponica Refrigeration! If you have not heard about Laponica yet it is only a matter of time. Legal aliens, unlike those in the movie Independence Day, the owners of Laponica moved to New Orleans from Norway in 1993. With expert knowledge in the field of residential and commercial air conditioning and heating – Laponica Refrigeration is the company you can trust to be fair and honest with your next project. Besides… we’re Norwegians. We know the cold. We even have a guy with a huge cool looking beard working for us. How awesome is that? 

Relax – Laponica Refrigeration got this!

She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness. (Proverbs 31:26 – KJV)

When it comes to wise sayings not much beats the authors of Proverbs. King Solomon and his father David both knew quiet well that the smartest thing a man could probably do is #1 Trust God and #2 Don’t argue with your wife. Laponica Refrigeration is a family Christian owned and operated small business serving the Greater New Orleans area in residential HVAC and commercial HVACR.

Whether it is for your house or for your office Laponica is ready to provide a helping hand in times of dire need. Service or install on air conditioning and heating for our residential and commercial customers. For our commercial customers we also provide install and service on commercial grade ice machines and walk-in cooler/freezer boxes.

It is better to dwell in a corner of the housetop, than with a brawling woman in a wide house. (Proverbs 21:9 – KJV)


Chili’s Grill & Bar – Covington, LA

For some time now we have been working on a new Chili’s being built in Covington, LA. The GC (General Contractor) is a really cool guy, could be mistaken for Santa, who makes knives. Always fun to meet new people with great talent. Besides myself off course.

Yet another Pizza Hut in Baton Rouge

Some additional photos of a job we did in Baton Rouge. For those interested 🙂

Partitioning the warehouse

I am not sure if these photos have ever been posted before… they are now. When we first moved into our office/warehouse on Bainbridge we had to build some partitions to divide our side from the rest. Special thanks to Dennis (the guy with the beard) and his father Paul (the old guy) for their work on the partitions.
