Air conditioning provides comfortable temperatures and humidity levels through the hottest days of the year, and you should be able to count on your AC unit when you need it.


A quality air conditioning system should provide about 10 to 15 years of service. However, during that time, there will likely be occasions when you need to call a professional for AC repairs in your home or business. Certain parts can wear out through the years, and if the system doesn’t receive regular maintenance, dirt can hinder performance. Some signs you might need to call for air conditioner repair are:

  • Warm Air – If you notice warm air coming out of the vents, the first thing to do is check the thermostat. If it is set to “cooling” and set at a proper cooling temperature, then chances are you may have restricted airflow or a compressor issue.
  • Low Airflow – If you feel air coming out of the vents, but it is much weaker than usual, there is probably something restricting the flow. It could be a blockage in the ducts, a duct leak, a dirty filter, or a broken motor.
  • Water Leaks – Air conditioners produce condensation as they cool your home, but they should be contained within the AC unit. If you notice water dripping or pooling around your unit, chances are you have a clog somewhere.


Have you thought about replacing your window air conditioner units with an air conditioning system that will cool the whole house? There are a few options for homeowners to choose from based on the home’s size, layout, and current HVAC setup. Contact us to schedule an estimate, and we can help you decide the best air conditioning installation option for your home, such as:

  • Central Air Conditioning – Central AC is connected to the same blower and ductwork that your furnace uses to circulate air throughout your home.
  • Split Systems – If your home does not use a forced hot air system, split systems, also known as ductless systems, are a great option. They also offer the ability for zoning to cool individual rooms only when needed.


Just like a car, HVAC systems perform better and are less likely to break down unexpectedly when they receive routine preventative maintenance. Your air conditioning unit is no different. A yearly servicing in the spring by our professionally trained team allows us to check the air conditioner’s vital components, check for worn parts, change out dirty filters, and give the unit a test drive. This preventative maintenance checkup is the best way to keep your air conditioning system running smoothly year after year. For the same peace of mind during the winter months, learn more about our heating services.


While you can expect your home’s air conditioner to last about 10 or 15 years, it may even run longer. However, if you’ve had your system for 10 years or more and you find yourself calling for AC repairs quite frequently, that’s usually a sign that it’s time to start shopping for an AC replacement. W.L. Staton Plumbing, Heating and Cooling is here for all your air conditioning system replacement needs. Even if you don’t have to call in an AC repair tech regularly and your system appears to be functioning fine, there are benefits to replacing an air conditioner that is a decade old or more, such as:

  • Reduced Energy Consumption – Newer AC models are more energy-efficient than those from 10 to 20 years ago.
  • Lower Utility Bills – AC systems that use less energy to cool houses and commercial spaces cost less to run.
  • Increased Comfort – Older systems don’t keep your space quite as cool as they once did. They also have to work harder to provide the cool air your thermostat calls for, leading to more energy use.
  • Improved Air Quality – Air conditioners provide cool air on hot days and lower humidity levels, but they also improve the air quality within your home. A newer system that runs more efficiently will be an air-quality improvement compared to a system that’s 10 or 15 years old.


At W.L. Staton Plumbing, Heating and Cooling, we want to provide our customers with the convenience of finding all their HVAC service needs in one place. That’s why we offer comprehensive air conditioning system solutions, including AC installation, repairs, maintenance, and replacements for all Annapolis, MD customers.

Great experience with this company. They were able to diagnose and fix our issues so quickly, and the technician (Shawn) took lots of time to answer all my questions. We had a tricky place to tuck in our new hot water heater, and he made sure everything fit right, even though it meant running back out to get a different piece/fitting. Everything was cleaned up and working when he left--couldn't be happier!

I called and the receptionist was very friendly and had Joe come out the same day. Joe explained everything he was going to do and kept me informed. He was very kind and easy to communicate with. Job was finished very quickly but Thoroughly he even looked at my faucet that was a bit loose. I would highly recommend WL Staton plumbing company.Happy customerJ. Ginsburg

We signed up for their maintenance agreement, which provides us with a Spring/Summer system check and a Fall/Winter check, and recently had the technicians out for our first check of the year. They were extremely professional, took lots of detailed notes and pictures of the system (which, we found out is because IF we ever have a problem in the future they'll already know what parts the unit uses and have them on the truck so repairs can go faster!), opened up the outside unit to make sure there were no potential problems (mostly looking for nests or animals of any kind since that's been a problem in our neighborhood), and even swapped out the filter. Within minutes of leaving, I received a fully detailed report from the technician complete with all the pictures they took. Knowing the system has been thoroughly inspected and giving a clean bill of health, is a huge weight off my mind.

This was a complicated and serious job. The team had to dig a 4 foot wide by 10 feet deep trench to get to the sewer pipes.This team worked straight through and took the time to explain everything to me and my husband. They did a fantastic job. I would highly recommend this company.

Justin was absolutely PHENOMENAL!!! He went above and beyond. I was so impressed, especially since we've had nothing but bad experiences with every contractor thus far during home renovations. He came out to give me an estimate and offered to do some minor plumbing I needed done that same day. Justin also saw I needed some help moving and lifting some things and took it upon himself to take care of it for me. After my experience with him today, I felt no need to seek out any other company or estimates. He was the guy for the job. In fact, I've hired this company (Justin) to do additional work I need done. He was on time friendly, professional, very thorough and explained everything to me and made sure I understood. This is the first review I have ever done on any company and their work. 10 stars if I could! Absolutely fantastic! Highly, Highly recommend!! I can't say enough. Thanks again Justin!!
