Air Doctorx Heating and Air Conditioning takes pride in offering top-notch HVAC services in Delaware and Eastern Shore Maryland, “from bridge to bridge.” The company provides heater and air conditioning installation, repair and service at competitive pricing. Its customizable maintenance plans make it easier for you to invest in the upkeep of your HVAC system without breaking the bank. 

Air Doctorx is a family affair. Mark Sabean, who founded the company in 1989, is president and CEO. He has 40 years experience in the industry. His wife, Lori, does the accounting. Their youngest son, Timothy, does outside sales; his wife, Carleen, is dispatcher, social media coordinator and website designer. Son Benjamin handles some of the online business. 

Not family but an important part of the business, Sharon orders parts, manages the warehouse and does anything else that’s needed around the office. In this new age in which all parts seem to be at least a day away, Air Doctorx’s trucks are fully stocked, ready to roll. 

“Our membership maintenance club offers priority service to members, 24/7, and a 15% parts and labor discount,” Sabean said. “We make two visits, spring and fall, for annual maintenance to ensure that your HVAC system operates optimally, keeping you comfortable year-round.” 

Sabean is pleased that he and his employees are able to establish a relationship with clients, many of whom are comfortable having work done even when they’re not home. “More than 50% of our workforce are prior military,” said Sabean, who served eight years in the Air Force, including a tour in Saudi Arabia before the Gulf War. “Most of our mechanics go through a four-year Delaware apprenticeship program which we sponsor, and all our mechanics have 200 hours of continuing education every year, in addition to on-the-job training.” 

Air Doctorx has the expertise to handle all kinds of HVAC systems from furnaces and air conditioners to geothermal and ductless Mitsubishi systems. 

Sabean said they have installed a lot of the ductless systems in churches. “They’re preferred because of their economics. These units are extremely efficient, as inexpensive to operate as it gets.” 

Smaller units are available for residential use with all the same features, benefits and efficiencies as the commercial products. Both qualify for state and federal rebates. 

Sabean, who has been installing ductless systems since 1984, said they are becoming popular now in this hemisphere, while the rest of the world has recognized their value since the 1970s. 

For systems using ducts, Air Doctorx can help improve the efficiency by performing duct sealing with Aeroseal, from the inside out. 

Air Doctorx Heating & Air Conditioning takes pride in being involved with the community. “One of the most interesting and rewarding projects we’ve been a part of was helping to build a church in a day,” Sabean said. “We provided free labor for the installation of the church’s HVAC system.” 

Air Doctorx is based in Hartly, Delaware, at 4639 Halltown Road. For more information, visit online at, call 302-492-1333 or email in**@ai********.com.
