HVAC Contractor-Leonardtown, MD

Heating & Air Conditioning Installation & Repair

The HVAC system in most Leonardtown homes consists of a gas or oil furnace and a separate air conditioner. This is to take advantage of the large efficiency gains and cost savings fuel based heat has over electric heat. In addition, a standalone air conditioner operates slightly more efficiently than a heat pump system in cooling mode. In some older homes, a permanent air conditioning system may not have been installed.

Tri-County Aire has served the southern Maryland area for over 30 years. If you’ve decided it’s time to install an air conditioner in a home without one, you can rely on our decades of experience installing ACs in Maryland’s older homes. We also replace existing air conditioners and furnaces when it’s time for a newer, more energy efficient model. If it’s not quite time for a new unit, we offer preventative maintenance plans to help keep your unit running at maximum efficiency and to detect problems early on when they are cheaper to fix. We also offer emergency service when needed — just fill out our online form or give us a call.

 

About Leonardtown, Maryland

Leonardtown is a 3.25 square-mile town in south-central Maryland and is the county seat of St. Mary’s County. It is near the Washington, D.C. metro area and the Patuxent River Naval Air Station. The town has a population of just under 3,000.

History

During the late 1700s, residents of the area known as Newtown began holding a county court in various homes. In 1708, a designated courthouse was established when 50 acres were set aside for the town, and the town’s name was changed to Seymour Town in honor of Maryland Governor John Seymour. 20 years later, Benedict Leonard Calvert became governor of Maryland, and the town was renamed to Leonardtown.

The town’s economy was crippled when the British blockaded Chesapeake Bay during the War of 1812. It was also subject to pillaging by British troops. By 1860, the town had rebuilt to include two hotels, multiple stores, and 35 homes within its limits. It was also a key landing during the steamboat era. Today, Leonardtown is the only municipality in St. Mary’s County to have its own town council and mayor.

Things to Do

The Port of Leonardtown Public Park is the beginning of a three-mile canoe and kayak trail that is home to many native bird species. Boat rentals and shuttle services are available from private companies. The Port of Leonardtown Winery allows local farmers to join a co-op that grows grapes to produce local wines. Leonardtown also publishes a walking tour that circles around the town and stops at 21 historic locations.
