As a young boy Gerald rode with his father, W. Gwyn Speeks delivering oil and helped by pulling the hose to fill the oil tanks. At the age of 16 he sold his first Heating System. Eventually he took over the day to day operations of the company, but is now enjoying retirement and traveling with his wife Joan who are life time residents of Chesterfield County. His hobbies include showing and breeding Quarter Horses and fishing on the river in Deltaville, VA. Greg, following in the footsteps of his father and grandfather joined the family business full time in 1986.
Richmond is known for its hot and humid summers. WG Speeks can help to keep your home cool and comfortable all season long by servicing, repairing, or replacing your air conditioning. Air conditioning is a necessity in Richmond, especially during the hot, humid summer months. Locals will agree that there's no misery quite like having an air conditioning not working in the middle of a heat wave. It's important to invest in a quality air conditioning system as well as ongoing maintenance from a company you can trust.
Air duct and vent cleaning is an often overlooked, but vitally important aspect aspect of HVAC system maintenance. In addition to improving the overall indoor air quality in our homes, it can increase the efficiency of heating and air conditioning equipment and lower energy bills. Fortunately, the qualified professionals at W.G. Speeks can provide guidance on how to properly maintain your air ducts and vents to keep your HVAC system functioning at an optimal level. Did you know that the air quality inside of our homes can actually be worse than it is outside?
Boiler problems tend to arise at the worst possible time! As with anything else, providing ongoing, regular maintenance of your boiler can keep it working in tip top shape so that you can avoid being without heat in the middle of winter. Essentially, a boiler looks like a box filled with tubing, often made of copper. Water flows through the tubes and is heated very quickly. Unlike a water heater, no water is stored in a boiler but it can still heat an entire building. While it may be smaller than a furnace or traditional water heater, a boiler heating system requires complex controls and pumps to function.
While you can count on Richmond for hot, humid summers, the winters are less predictable. One year can be pleasantly mild and the next can leave your teeth chattering. When the temps start dipping below zero, you will want to know that your furnace is up to the challenge! As temperatures dip, we all rush to thermostat to turn up the heat. With the push of a button, we can keep our homes toasty and warm, but how often do we think about the intricate heating systems bringing us comfort? The reality is that, even the new and improved units include many delicate parts that should be cleaned and maintained on a regular basis to function at an optimal level.
We spend a lot of time in our homes, especially during the winter months, so it's important that we feel comfortable and safe. When ventilation and moisture levels are not properly managed, mold, mildew, pollen, dust and other pollutants can settle in and dramatically affect indoor air quality. Unfortunately, this can have a negative impact on both your health and your wallet. Investing in the right air purifier and humidifier for your home can improve your sense of well-being and save you money.
By design, heat pumps are a quiet, customizable choice for your home. Bad weather can try to sneak up on you during any time of the year but a well-functioning heat pump can easily meet the challenge. The NATE certified technicians at W.G. Speeks can install a new heat pump in your home or provide service and maintenance to your existing system. Being proactive can save you precious time and money in the long run. Sticking to a regular maintenance schedule can prolong the life of your heat pump system and prevent costly emergency repairs.

So my AC wasn't working yesterday and I have a home warranty, so I called them. They indicated they wouldn't be able to get anyone out til Monday at the earliest. Ummm.it's like 90 degrees, so I said what the heck, let me try W.G. Speeks since I've always gotten good service from them. They dispatched Jason out and he was so courteous and professional (and a complete cutie.don't tell my hubbs). He went to the unit and immediately figured out the problem. Turns out he had the part on the truck and was able to fix the problem to get this air cranking. For this 90 degree heat, I would've paid these ppl in blood to get my air working
They are the best! I needed service today. They came out quickly, fixed the issue and I wasn't charged a dime!
W.G. Speeks is by far the best HVAC service in Richmond. We called this morning with an air conditioning issue. We were told that a technician would be out toward the end of the day due to the high volume of service calls. Our technician, Jerry Hendrix, arrived as promised and was amazing! He was immediately able to identify the issue and proceeded to fix the problem. Our house was cooled within an hour. All of the staff at W.G. Speeks are professional, courteous, and knowledgeable. We are so glad we found them.
