Jordan Raper is a certified technician of family owned Aire Serv Heating & Air Conditioning.
This summer is going to be a doozy. Before the searing heat pushes your AC unit to the brink, it is worth having Aire Serv Heating & Air Conditioning pay a visit to conduct some preventative maintenance to ensure your comfort throughout the season.
Aire Serv is based in Bixby, and serves the entire Tulsa metro area. Owned by Randy Raper, who has lived in the Tulsa area his entire life, the company is truly a family business. His wife, Debi, runs the office, scheduling service visits and handling nonstop phone calls. Their son, Jordan, is also a certified technician and possesses skills and experience much deeper than his age implies.
When asked about the family business, Jordan says he grew up watching his grandfather and father repair heating and cooling units. “I used to ride along with my dad,” he says. Once he was old enough to lend a hand, he did. Throughout high school, he was learning the trade – whenever he wasn’t studying or playing sports.
“If I wasn’t at any outside school activity, I was helping my dad,” he recalls. While other twenty-somethings are still trying to figure out what they want to be when they grow up, Jordan is already well established in a career. Such reliability and work ethic is representative of the Raper family and their business.
Knowing a reputable company to fix air conditioning is vital as the season heats up. Summer is hardly in full swing, and already Oklahomans have been tested with spikes in temperature. After a rainy, record-setting May, June swept through and pummeled the region with more humidity and heat.
“The previous two summers were relatively mild,” says Debi Raper, adding that she expects this summer to be one of the hotter ones. “It’s going to be humid, on top of the heat,” she says, which only exacerbates reliance on air conditioning. She explains when the weather heats up quickly, they receive a lot of emergency calls for failing cooling units. And, while the family welcomes the business, people could avoid the misery that comes with a broken air conditioner.
“A lot of problems come from not maintaining units,” she says. If units aren’t properly cleaned and tested at least twice per year, small problems turn into big problems. Often, preventable breakdowns occur because no one was checking the unit in the first place. Debi and Randy urge customers to sign on for the Aire Serv Advantage Plan. The Advantage Plan protects customers with cooling and heating service checks twice per year, ensuring HVAC systems are prepared for the extreme temperatures of summer and winter. Each service visit features a 26-point inspection and tune up, including filter replacement and unit wash. In addition to the preventative care invested in the cooling system, Aire Serv offers Advantage Plan customers a 15% discount on repairs. So, even if something does fail, owners will have something cool to look forward to.
All Aire Serv work is backed by a 100% guarantee, adding to the peace of mind offered to customers. Plus, Aire Serv is available for repairs 24 hours per day, seven days per week – with no overtime charges.
Sometimes, though, units aren’t worth the effort and cost of repairs. For those wanting the increased efficiency of a new system, Aire Serv can assist with financing. Further, when a new high efficiency unit is purchased, owners are eligible for a rebate with PSO.
With service plans to cover customers year round, deals on emergency service and 24/7 service, Aire Serv is the business to call on to keep you cool this summer. Don’t wait until your unit goes out – set up a service call today.
