Bradley Mechanical – The Premier Source for Air Conditioning in Richmond

Technician repairing an air conditioner

After 50 years in the HVAC business, Bradley Mechanical knows a thing or two about servicing air conditioning systems in Richmond. Take it from us: Scheduled AC 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 problems down the line. Anytime our certified air conditioning technicians can prevent a catastrophe, it makes our day.

Scheduled AC Service

Preventive service keeps air conditioners running efficiently. Efficient AC systems cost about 15%-20% less to run than typical systems. This can add up to considerable savings even after just one summer. An efficient air conditioner will keep you and your family cooler and more comfortable. They help to maintain healthier air quality. Better yet, they will suffer from less wear-and-tear. A properly-serviced air conditioning 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 to schedule air conditioning service? If it’s been more than six months since your last preventive AC tune-up and inspection, you’re overdue.

The Best Time to Schedule Air Conditioning Service

Bradley Mechanical suggests scheduling two preventive service calls per year. One in the spring, before you plan on using your air conditioner, and one 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 HVAC system is right before you’ll have to start relying on them again.

Do You Need Immediate AC Service?

An ongoing AC maintenance plan that includes two tune-ups and inspections per year is enough to prevent most problems you’d encounter with your air conditioner. 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 of your home
  • Your AC system is working harder than usual
  • You’ve encountered an unusual spike in monthly energy bills
  • Strange odors emitted from your HVAC unit or the ductwork in your home
  • Unusual sounds coming from your HVAC system

What You Can Expect With Bradley Mechanical

Our certified technician will check the various components of your air conditioning system. We’ll verify if your AC system is running efficiently, or if you’re overpaying on your energy bill. We’ll also run some diagnostic tests to 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 unit, 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 air conditioner is much easier when you can start planning for it well in advance.

We invite you to discover why Richmond residents trust 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 and show you what makes us so highly rated. Don’t wait for your AC to let you down!
