Richmond's Air Conditioning Service Experts

After 50 years in the business, Bradley Mechanical knows a thing or two about Richmond’s air conditioning systems. So, take it from us: Scheduled service and maintenance is one of the smartest investments you can make. That’s because routine, preventive service keeps easily-solved issues from turning into expensive failures. Anytime our certified AC service technicians can prevent a catastrophe, it makes our day.

Why you should schedule your AC service

Preventive service keeps air conditioning systems running efficiently. Efficient systems cost about 15%-20% less to run than typical systems. They keep you cooler and more comfortable. They help to maintain healthier air quality. And they suffer less wear-and-tear; a properly-serviced AC system will last longer, postponing the day when it fails and you’ll have to pay thousands to replace it.

So how do you know when it’s time for air conditioning service? If it’s been more than six months since your last preventive tune-up and inspection, you’re overdue.

The best time to schedule

Bradley Mechanical suggests scheduling two preventive service calls per year: in the spring, before you use your air conditioning, and in the fall, before you use your heating. (A lot can happen to your AC or heating components in six months – even when you’re not using them.) The best time to inspect and service your AC or heater is right before you’ll have to start relying on them again.

Signs that you need AC service now

An ongoing maintenance plan that includes two tune-ups and inspections per year is enough to prevent the most air conditioning issues. But that doesn’t mean you should wait if you see signs of trouble between visits. If you’re seeing any of the below signs, call Bradley Mechanical today.

Signs that your AC system may require more timely service or repair:

  • Inconsistent, uneven cooling
  • System working harder than usual
  • Unusual spike in energy bills
  • Strange odors
  • Unusual sounds

What you can expect

Our certified service technician will check the various components of your air conditioning system. We’ll verify if your system is running efficiently, or if you’re overpaying on your energy bill. We’ll confirm whether your AC is providing you with clean, safe air, or if you’re being exposed to pet dander, dust mites, and other airborne allergens.

We’ll tune-up your air conditioning system, and we’ll let you know if any additional service or repairs are needed. If your AC system is nearing the end of its life, we’ll let you know that, too; replacing your AC system is a lot easier when you can start planning for it well in advance.

Service you can trust

We invite you to discover why Richmond’s trusts us to expertly service and maintain their air conditioning systems. An A+ rating with the BBB is just the start. If you live in Richmond, Glen Allen, Midlothian, Chesterfield, or nearby, we’re ready to earn your trust. So, don’t wait for your AC to let you down. Call us today to schedule your service – and be sure to ask about our maintenance plans!
