When you need a new air conditioner installed, it’s important to employ the services of a reliable HVAC company. Whether you need an air conditioner installed in a new house or building, or if you need to replace an old or broken system, an experienced HVAC company can recommend the best brand and model for you. Borum Heating and Air Conditioning has been reliably installing air conditioners in the Richmond, Virginia area since 1996. You can count on Borum to do the job right.
To get the best performance out of an air conditioner it is imperative that it be installed correctly. The inside and outside units need to be installed correctly with all electrical wiring and drainage working properly. The thermostat must be accurate and in tune with all other parts to be sure the system is cooling the space as it should. Another very important part of an air conditioner is the ductwork. If the ducts are not properly installed and sealed there can be leakage of air; cool air escaping and warm air getting in. Ductwork also needs to be the proper size for the system and the building. The air conditioner itself must also be the correct size to cool the space according to square footage. There are so many important parts of AC installation, and only properly trained, experienced technicians will be able to do it right.
With so many different brands and models of air conditioners out there, it can be hard to know which one to install. Experienced HVAC companies will be able to make knowledgeable recommendations based on the systems they have installed and repaired in the past. Our technicians have years of experience and tell you right away which brands are most reliable and provide the most value.

In the heat of the summer, there’s no better feeling than stepping through your door into the coolness of the AC. But what if you walk in and feel warm, humid, stuffy air instead? Your AC isn’t working. So many questions run through your head. What is wrong with the air conditioner? Will I have to call someone to fix it? If so, whom should I call? How much will it cost? Can it be repaired or will it need to be replaced? Borum Heating and Air Conditioning can answer all these questions for you.
When your AC stops working there are a few things you can check. First, make sure there is power to all parts of the system. Check that the electricity is working throughout your home. Look in the electrical box for any tripped circuit breakers. Make sure the thermostat is set to the desired temperature and that it is on the cool setting. If everything seems to be in order, then the problem is likely with the air conditioning system itself. The best thing to do now is to call a professional HVAC company.
But how do you decide who to call? You may consult the yellow pages, you may search online, or you may consult a friend or family member for a recommendation. Before you decide on a company, do some research. Look for a company that is well established and has experience. Borum has been serving Richmond since 1996. We provide prompt, affordable service and our customers are our first priority.
To repair or replace your air conditioner…how to decide? There are various factors to take into consideration. If your system is beyond repair you may not have a choice. In some cases your current system can be repaired but that still may not be in your best interest. Consider the age of your system. Is it 8 years old or older? If so, you may want to consider replacement. New systems work much more efficiently than systems even 5 years old. You can save significant money on energy costs by installing a new AC unit. Also, as your system ages the likelihood of further repairs increases due to regular wear and tear. It may be tempting to pay less now to have your system repaired, but it may end up costing you more in the long run. Experienced Borum technicians can assess your system and give you the best recommendation.
Want to reduce your chances of AC break downs? Consider a maintenance plan from Borum. Regular maintenance (usually once a year for your AC) can prevent break downs. A technician will inspect your system for any potential problems and clean the system to maximize performance.
