Reliable Air Conditioning Maintenance in Richmond, VA

short pump heating and air technician working on ac unit outside of houseRichmond, Virginia, is one of the oldest and most historical major cities in the U.S., which means most of Richmond’s homes were built before 1940.

If you live in one of these historic beauties, your HVAC system has likely been replaced at least once — probably more like two or three times. If you’d like to put off another replacement for a while longer, investing in maintenance is your best bet.

Your AC system can last as long as 15 years with regular HVAC maintenance. AC maintenance is a good investment because it keeps your system working more efficiently, which lowers monthly energy bills. Maintenance also improves your indoor air quality — something everyone cares about.

Since the 1920s, our family has had roots in Richmond and HVAC solutions. We’re invested in this area and you!

Benefits of Regular AC Maintenance for Richmond Homes

Any well-maintained cooling unit will last longer. Without maintenance, you’ll need a new AC system within eight to 10 years. Your HVAC system has many moving parts that need annual inspection and lubrication. This keeps everything working efficiently.

Some AC repairs cost as much as $2,300. Maintenance saves money by preventing the need for these repairs. AC maintenance also increases energy efficiency, meaning your energy bills will be lower for the same level of cooling. Without maintenance, you’ll likely have to replace your broken system sooner rather than later.

Perhaps most importantly, if you ignore maintenance, you’ll have more airborne pollutants and allergens that cause illness. Your air quality will suffer without a clean AC unit and ductwork. This is important to most households, especially those with children, elderly, or chronically ill family members.
