Reliable AC Repair in Martinsburg from Shenandoah Air Conditioning and Heating
While Benjamin Franklin dabbled in air conditioning experiments during the mid-1700s, the modern air conditioner didn’t come into existence until 1902. Franklin’s work with evaporation and alcohol to reach freezing temperatures was superseded by that of Willis Haviland Carrier, who exploited existing technology in mechanical refrigeration to create a system he unimaginatively called the Apparatus for Treating Air.
You have Carrier to thank for the cool air rushing out of your registers at this moment, for the population booms in the southern United States, and for the counterintuitive need to bring a sweater and wear jeans when you go to a movie theater in July. You have Shenandoah Air Conditioning and Heating in Martinsburg to thank when you need fast, reliable, affordable service to repair one of your now-essential air conditioning units.

Making Your Worries about AC Repair in Martinsburg History
The first plea for air conditioning came from the Sackett-Wilhelms Lithographing and Publishing Company in Brooklyn, New York. For years, the heat and humidity of Big Apple summers had wrinkled and smeared ink in the company’s printing room. Their commission of Carrier led to his very first Apparatus for Treating Air, which came to revolutionized indoor existence. By 1914 an air conditioning unit had been installed in a private residence in the (unlikely) location of a Minneapolis mansion. Window air conditioners debuted in the early 1930s, with starting prices of $10,000, equivalent to more than $100,000 today.
The extraordinarily high cost of early systems should help you breathe a sigh of relief about the comparatively limited investment today, and our friendly and reliable service should help remove any remaining worry. So if you hear your unit rattle, give us a call. If it doesn’t feel quite as warm or cool as it should in your home, give us a call. If the air blowing from your register is barely a breeze instead of a steady wind, give us a call. We are licensed, local AC repair specialists in Martinsburg dedicated to keeping the air around you and throughout your home comfortable and clean.
