AC Maintenance

HVAC Maintenance Richmond & Central Virginia

We all know that a commercial or residential air conditioning system needs routine maintenance. Like a car, regular HVAC maintenance can be the difference in your air conditioning units longevity and performance. That’s why at Bradley Mechanical we take preventative care services seriously. This can be the difference from a few hundred dollars a year spent to tune up your AC unit versus spending several thousand dollars to replace it. Every time we step into someone’s place of business or home; we make it a point to offer superior air conditioner maintenance to all of our customers throughout Richmond, Midlothian, Chesterfield, and all of Central Virginia.
Routine maintenance to your AC system not only ensures optimal functionality and performance, but also other factors such as efficiencies, energy costs, and even your health and safety that play a role here.

Efficiencies are often attributed to your AC system’s inability to properly cool and heat your home. If your system isn’t efficient, neither is your comfort.

In addition to your comfort suffering, so do your utility cost. On average, we find businesses and homeowners typically spend 20% or more compared to what a properly air conditioned or heated home or business spends in energy costs. This is something we can easily test for during your air conditioning scheduled maintenance. Ongoing upkeep also protects you from future inefficiencies in the event your system begins to fail. This way we can help you avoid a full system failure, or at the very least, help you plan for replacing your system so that you don’t get blindsided with having to replace your HVAC system. As the old adage states, “it’s better to be safe than sorry”. Air conditioning maintenance helps your keep AC System Safe!

Even more important, is the safety of your family, your employees, or yourself. Inefficient central air conditioning, can lead to excessive heating or cooling, or prevent your air handler and filters from removing pet dander, dust mites, and other airborne allergens from the air. These things can have a significant impact on your health and well-being. Maintenance plans and tune up services are one of the best ways to safeguard those you love and care about from being exposed to potential harm.

What is involved in an IAQ tune up?

IAQ tune ups include indoor and outdoor coil cleaning, flushing drains, refrigerant check, and a full system operation check. (I think this one can be answered by pulling the check list from the tune up page)

How long does a tune up take?

A Bradley Mechanical tune up is not a visual inspection like most. Our thorough tune ups can take anywhere from an hour and a half to two hours per system. We clean everything inside and out.

Are filters provided?

No, they are not. We can provide filters for a fee or change customer provided ones for no charge. If you purchased a PureAir or Healthy Climate Media from us, then we will bring the required filter for your maintenance. Media filters last for a year under normal conditions.

Why should I do maintenance on my HVAC system?

HVAC maintenance is important as it can prolong the life of the system and maintain optimal performance. It also ensures that you are breathing the cleanest air possible. Maintaining a clean system can also save you substantial amounts on your electric bills. See our maintenance page for full details.

What are the benefits of an ESA Agreement?

The ESA Agreement gives you priority service over other customers and offers guaranteed same day service. You’ll also benefit from 15 percent off parts and labor in all departments, lower diagnostic cost ($69 instead of $99), and no overtime or weekend charges EVER!

How much is a service call?

A service call is $99 for non-ESA customers and $69 for ESA customers.

How often do I need to put refrigerant in my HVAC system?

NEVER! The HVAC system is completely sealed and operates at high pressure. If the system needs refrigerant then there is a leak somewhere in the system. Hire a professional to find the leak and solve the issue.

How much is refrigerant?

Pricing for refrigerant is done on site, but you may not even need it! Let us find out first.

How often should I change my air filters?

The filters in your returns are 30-day filters. When it’s time to replace them, avoid the expensive options at the store, which often restrict air flow. All Bradley Mechanical supplied Media filters can last an entire year.
