The Benefits of HVAC Maintenance

Monday, April 6th, 2020

While our name might imply that we’re the masters of “house calls,” would you believe us if we told you that our whole goal is to ensure you have to make as few house calls as possible? Especially now, while we’re all living through a global pandemic, the less you can interact with other people the better.

Unfortunately, when it comes to HVAC in Chesapeake, VA like air conditioning or heating, what you’ve done in the past is really going to decide whether or not you’re going to be okay for another season. Routine maintenance is vital to keeping your systems running accordingly, and if you’d like to limit the number of house calls you make in the future, then scheduling routine maintenance now is the best course of action.

Ultimately, it’s up to you. But trust us when we say that we’re professionals, and maintenance can make all the difference in a time like this.

Waiting doesn’t make it better!

Friday, August 31st, 2018

When I was younger I would drive my car until the wheels fell off. I would never dream of doing that now, I want to make sure my family is safe and I want time to make the right buying decision and consider all my options. Funny, I still have customers call me when they need a new unit right now​.

That’s just bad for everyone.

When you are hot and miserable you aren’t as likely to make a good decision, or have time to consider all your options. It’s not always the price you pay today, but how much that AC unit is going to cost to run for the next 15 years.

Now you have one more reason to do the right thing…Trade in your older, inefficient air conditioner while it is still working and you could make a big difference in your home and in your community.

Right now, when you trade in that old working AC it will be donated to Youth Challenge. This will help them in many ways. Your unit will be sent to the Youth Challenge Thrift Store where it will be reconditioned and then sold to help someone less fortunate, all the proceeds go to help Youth Challenge and you get a nice charitable tax deduction. They take the broken ACs too!

So start saving money today on your energy bills, and save money on your taxes next year…All while helping out a great organization and the community.

Still not convinced, how about 0% interest for 5 years.
