Norfolk Air Heating, Cooling, Plumbing & Electrical is proud to offer homeowners in Norfolk, Virginia Beach, Chesapeake and all of Hampton Roads our Blue Ribbon Protection Plan. Manufacturer warranty terms require that air conditioning maintenance be performed annually. Warranty claims can be denied if the equipment owner is unable to provide documentation proof that maintenance has been performed each year. All of our plans meet these requirements and will ensure that you have uninterrupted coverage when you need it most.

Why Get An AC Tune-Up?
Independent studies have been done on the benefits of air conditioning maintenance. A series of homes were heavily instrumented, data was collected over time, tune-ups were performed, and data was collected again. The results of this landmark study were staggering. The researchers found that tune-ups saved energy and restored lost capacity.
How Much Does It Cost?
We offer four plans, each with a monthly pre-payment option, that provide one or two on-site inspections a year. Costs start at $10 a month for one annual visit to inspect one system. View our PDF Residential Maintenance Agreement for full pricing and add-on options.
Average Monthly Savings from a Tune-Up: $30.00
Average Cooling Capacity Restored: 23%
The researchers concluded that:
Air conditioning maintenance benefits the customer by lowering their operating costs, increasing their comfort control capacity, and is believed to extend equipment life.
But do homeowners need a tune-up every year? To answer that question, researchers repeated the study a year later, using the same homes from the prior year. They found that 78% of the savings were present. In other words, one year of operation takes a toll on the air conditioner. It may still function adequately, but not nearly as efficient as it should.
Average Monthly Savings from a Tune-Up After One Year of Operation: $25.60
