Don’t Sweat It: Let The Pros Handle Your Air Conditioner Maintenance This Summer

Well, summer’s finally here. And along with the BBQs, baseball games, and trips to the park, there’s still one drawback of spending summertime in our area: the oppressive heat and humidity.

Once that first heat wave hits, you’re going to want to crank your air conditioner. But what if it doesn’t work? Don’t get stuck in the miserable and uncomfortable heat, waiting for a busy HVAC technician to eventually get to your house. Get your AC tuned-up today from one of our air conditioner specialists.

At Getzschman Heating and Air Conditioning, we’ve been providing air conditioner maintenance to Omaha and the surrounding areas for over 50 years. That means we’ve not only survived 50 summers but have kept our customers cool and comfortable throughout every single one of them.

When an AC unit sits idly for months, it collects dirt and debris. This can not only cause unnecessary wear and tear on the components, but can reduce its efficiency which can cost you extra money in the long run.

Leave it to the Pros

The proper care and maintenance of an AC system involves much more than merely cleaning the unit. That’s why it’s always best to let one of our highly-trained technicians handle it. We provide a comprehensive approach to AC tune-ups to keep you cool throughout the entire summer.

This comprehensive approach can include:

  • Checking the air filter and replacing it if necessary
  • Cleaning the air vents and testing them for mold
  • Adjusting the blower
  • Inspecting the evaporator and components
  • Calibrating the thermostat
  • Tightening electrical connections
  • Lubricating moving components
  • Checking refrigerant for leaks

Consider a Replacement
Over time, HVAC systems can begin to break down from the wear and tear of everyday use. Sometimes, constantly repairing them can actually be more expensive than replacing your existing AC system and upgrading it to a more efficient and cost-effective cooling method.
At Getzschman Heating and Air Conditioning, we have ductless mini split air conditioning systems. These space saver AC units are sleekly-designed and quiet, and can provide your home or office with a cool and comfortable indoor climate this summer.


Don’t wait until the unexpected cost and discomfort of a complete AC system breakdown derails your entire summer. Get your air conditioner maintained or replaced today with Getzschman Heating and Air Conditioning!

Take Care of Your Air With Indoor Air-Quality Solutions

When walking through a bustling city street or along the dirt-filled road of a foreign country, our instincts prompt us to cover our mouths. Theoretically, we should then be treating the air inside of our home with the same level of hesitancy. It’s true! Day to day activities can significantly impact the air quality in our home — and these toxins can potentially harm ourselves and our loved ones.

How Do I Contribute to My Home’s Air Quality?

There are a number of factors that contribute to the air quality in your home. This includes a variety of chemicals, pets, household products, and bacteria and mold — the list goes on. Inadequate ventilation can also result in a low air exchange rate, reducing the amount of fresh air that circulates throughout your home. According to the EPA, by understanding which air pollutants are most common indoors and how to control them, you can reduce the risk of relating health concerns.

Some of the most common culprits of indoor air pollution include:

  • Poor Ventilation
  • Combustion Products
  • Bioaerosols
  • Tobacco Products
  • Excess Moisture
  • Household Products & Chemicals

What You Can Do

Improve Ventilation System

The thing about poor indoor air quality is that most people don’t know they have it. To ensure you and your family are breathing in clean air, be sure to contact Getzschman Heating for a thorough inspection of your indoor air quality. Whether you need duct cleaning, a new air filter, or air purifier, we have a variety of options that can significantly improve the air inside of your home.

Reduce Combustion Products

Be mindful of the combustion that emits from fireplaces and gas stoves. Carbon monoxide, which is found in these fumes, can build up indoors and cause harm to anyone who breathes it in. Take precautions when operating combustion products to reduce its effect on indoor air quality.

Let in Fresh Air

To prevent toxic chemicals from building up in your home, be sure to let in some fresh air by opening up your windows. In addition to opening your windows, consider getting houseplants that can filter the air inside of your home.

Your indoor air quality is essential in keeping your family healthy and comfortable. Indoor air quality entails more than just clean air. It also includes humidity levels. At Getzschman, we’ve got you covered. We carry a variety of products that can help keep the air in your home as healthy and comfortable as possible.
