HVAC Surge Protection

HVAC needs protection more than it used to.  We are in an ever changing world.  Technology is adding components that we’ve never seen in our industry before.  And even though this is good for saving energy and other reasons, these new components are more fragile in comparison to the straight mechanical components of the past in regards to power surges.  Check out our video on surge protection!

Best warranty available

Since starting my business, I’ve looked for new and creative ways to grow and set ourselves apart from the griffin air hvac warrantycompetition.  The HVAC business is one that being different is rare.  Most companies fall into some sort of cookie cutter business that offers the same or similar product and warranty in the same or similar ways.

I’ve tried things like offering promotions, selling the best products, hiring the best technicians I could find and so on.  I do regular education, staff meetings and product testing with our team.  We are always just trying to get better, but also be above the crowd.  Be a shining light in midst of a sea of other companies.

I think I’ve found it! There’s one thing that we are offering now that we can hang our hat so to speak.  We can say here’s the value that our customers’ are looking for.  This one thing can be a game changer for our customers.  No one else has it… This is the “cat’s meow” in our industry.  Not a fancy product.  Not a smooth speech.  Not a cookie reward for doing business with us.  Nope.  It’s what every customer wants and may not even know it.  What is it?

griffin air hvac warrantyIt’s “peace of mind” in the form of the best warranty in the area.  Every company offers warranties, but this is different.  Griffin Air is offering absolute best warranty money can buy.  Great products that are now being backed with great warranties.  Some products come with a standard 10 year parts warranty coupled with a 10 year labor warranty.  Let me say that again… 10 YEAR PARTS AND LABOR WARRANTY!  No gimmicks.  No funny business.  If any parts go bad in the first 10 years, the part and the labor are covered!

So aside from us trying to be the most honest, hard working, professional company in the area.  Offering the best, griffin air hvac game changermost efficient products and competitive pricing.  We now sell the that peace of mind that every family looks for when having their hvac system installed.  When average folks would squeeze every bit of life out those old inefficient systems, you might be more inclined to go ahead and replace now that you know that you’ll be covered.  Like really covered this time.  Give us a chance to earn your business!

We care at Griffin Air!     –Josh

Deltaville Virginia HVAC repair blog post

In addressing the HVAC and plumbing concerns in the areas weStingray Point, Deltaville VA 23043 (sunrise+sunset Summer beach boats lighthouses water ). Photo by Deltaville service, I think we can agree that Deltaville is unlike anywhere else.  No where else has issues with septic systems being in the swampy soil, wells producing salty water and heat pumps/air conditioners being constantly in saltwater atmosphere conditions.  Whether located on Stingray point, down Jackson Creek Road or in Chesapeake Watch, you need an heating and air contractor that knows your situation and how to fix it.

Being on the water brings a set of challenges like no other.  Griffin Air has worked hard to find the best products on the market that stand up against the abuse that saltwater can put on metal equipment.  Different coils perform different ways in these conditions and can corrode the metals.

The U.S. Navy Research concluded in Technical Report #N-1560 that Spine Fin All Aluminum coils maintained efficiency 32% better after 24 months of operation in a corrosive environment (coastal or urban), than copper tube/aluminum fin units.

Next, sizing condensers properly is detrimental when installing HVAC systems in areas like Deltaville.  Oversizing an air conditioner could ruin your home, because it’s not just about lowering the temperature in the room.  You need a system that will also lower the humidity in the home.  If not, the unit could short cycle, walls sweat and mold could start to grow.

So whether you want get the best products with Spine Fin coils, have a system sized properly or any get another service in Deltaville or a surrounding area?  Call Griffin Air today at 804-505-0247!

What are some of the services provided during a GASP service?
•A thorough examination of system components including coils and contactors – Over time, coils may become dirt incrusted. Dirty coils cause a cooling system to work less efficiently. A unit with dirty coils uses more electricity, cools less effectively, and places undo stress on the compressor. Likewise, burned contactors compromise the efficiency of a cooling system and can cause damage to the compressor. An annual inspection allows a technician to identify dirty coils and burned out contactors before they cause long term damage to your system. It is much cheaper to have your coils cleaned or your contactors replaced than it is to replace a compressor.before-after
•Examination of air filters – Clean air filters improve the efficiency of your system and improve the quality of air circulating through your home or place of business.
•Cleaning and treatment of condensation lines – Clogged condensation lines and drain lines can cause water (moisture accumulated by your air conditioning system) to leak through your ceilings or walls. Our cooling inspection also includes an algaecide treatment to reduce the growth of algae and bacteria which can clog your drain lines.
•Examination of electric components – Worn electrical components can create a fire hazard or can cause your unit to unexpectedly break down.
•Pictures! Griffin Air will take pictures of components during system checkups. What you can’t see without climbing, squeezing, taking apart, etc. Griffin Air will show you!
