Local AC Company in Arlington, VA
Providing Expert HVAC Repair & Installation Services
The feel of cold air rushing from a supply register is a huge relief on a hot summer’s afternoon. How do you make sure your equipment always runs the way it should? And where do you turn if the AC stops working?
C.B. Lucas is your source for reliable cooling services in Arlington, Virginia. Our family-owned and -operated company has been installing, replacing, maintaining, and repairing air conditioners for years.
Cooling Systems We Service in Arlington
Did you know there are more options for cooling your home than just central air conditioning or a window AC unit? C.B. Lucas can service any type of cooling system you may have.
- Air conditioners: A high-efficiency AC unit is an energy-saving way to keep cool this summer.
- Heat pumps: This clever equipment looks and works like an air conditioner when it’s hot outside, but thanks to a reversing switch, it can also heat your home in the winter!
- Ductless mini-splits: You can still enjoy home cooling without ductwork. When you install a ductless mini-split, one or more wall-mounted air handlers connect to an outdoor unit to conveniently and efficiently heat and cool your home.
In addition to these cooling systems, we also specialize in solar-assisted heat pumps and air conditioners, zoning systems, and indoor air quality solutions.
Cooling Services in Arlington, VA
Our goal at C.B. Lucas is to serve as a one-stop shop for all your cooling needs. Here’s what we offer:
We care about the needs of our customers, and we never call a job complete until you are thrilled with the results. This goes for new equipment installations as well as system replacements.
We’ll help you select the right equipment for you, whether it’s a central air conditioner, heat pump, or ductless mini-split. Then, we’ll size your unit carefully to ensure it meets your needs and perform an expert installation to maximize the efficiency of your investment. We install cooling systems from Trane, Lennox, Honeywell, Aprilaire, and more.
Factors to consider in your AC replacement decision include:
- Poor performance: Is your air conditioner leaving warm spots around your home or run constantly just to try to keep up with your comfort needs? If so, it could be time for a new, more robust system that can efficiently cool your home.
- Age: Most AC units have a life span of about 10 to 15 years. So, if your unit is at least 10 years old, replacing it now can be a good idea. The older your system gets, the more problems it will likely develop which can cost you in terms of repair service, reduced comfort, and higher energy bills as your system approaches the end of its service life.
- Repair needs: Have you had to call for AC repair service or tune-up more than a few times within the last year or two? If so—and if you have to replace major components—you may be better offer replacing, rather than repairing, your system.
There’s nothing worse than a broken air conditioner late on a night before a holiday weekend. Rather than waiting it out until regular business hours, give C.B. Lucas a call any time of day or night, and we’ll be there to perform a reliable, affordable air conditioning repair in your Arlington home. We service most brands, whether we originally installed the unit or not.
