Is your AC Drain Clogged?!

profgatsby No Comments

Is your AC drain clogged?

This is the clear tube known as a condensate line. When your AC is running, it is pulling the moisture out of the air in your home. This moisture accumulates in your coil cabinet and drains into the condensation pump. The pump turns on and pumps the water outside. The issue occurs when this drain line gets clogged!

We can’t tell you how many service calls we get for this issue! When this line gets blocked, the water can’t escape properly and it can cause issues like:

  • Hundreds or even thousands in water damage to ceilings, carpets, drywall
  • Starting a house fire if water leaks onto electrical components
  • Increased humidity, musty odors, and algae

 

Avoiding these calls

  • Getting Preventative Maintenance Services (PM’s) once per year at the minimum
    • Our PM service includes checking & cleaning this line
  • Having a float switch installed to have system shut off when there is a clog (see below)
    • We install these in every single install we do!
  • Cleaning the drain yourself
    • We don’t recommend this because the cost for us to do this in a PM Service is so low, it isn’t worth you possibly doing this incorrectly.

“It’s that time of the year to add “Freon”.”

profgatsby No Comments

Are you that customer that has to keep getting your “Freon” filled up each year so you’re “good” for the summer?

Did you know that when this happens, it means you have a refrigerant leak in your system and it is leaking Dangerous Chemicals into the ozone layer causing Ozone Depletion?!! If you’re an environmentalist then this should concern you! At Professor Gatsby’s Heating & Cooling, we have top technology to help pin point the leak. Check out some of the reasons this should be addressed, listed below:

  • First, when you have a leak, the system will not run at its best efficiency causing you to not only have to pay for refrigerant, but also pay more for electricity!!
  • Second, this also hurts the life expectancy of your system, now that it’s running with a leak, it’s causing the system to run a lot longer causing more wear and tear but also could be damaging your system!!
  • Last but not least, if you have a leak, it’s only going to get worse over time and before you know it , it may die out in the middle of peak season and leave you without Air Conditioning causing you to either have to get an Air Conditioning service call or even worse an Air Conditioning replacement which may have been avoided if you were proactive!!!
  • Our Technicians our EPA Certified to handle and recover refrigerant properly

“When should I change my heater’s filter?”

profgatsby No Comments

Did you know that a lot of heating and cooling issues occur because your filter is too dirty? What happens is that the dirty filter starts to restrict airflow resulting in a tripped sensor or even worse, harming the system. Make sure you are keeping up with changing or replacing your filters and save spending money on a service call!!

We recommend that the filter be changed at the maximum, every 90 days. (depending on environment and MERV rating of filter) This is an easy way to prevent costly repairs to your furnace.

Their techs were clean and punctual. AC unit wasn't working. Called them on a hot, sunny Sunday and they took care of everything same day. Very knowledgeable. Explained each step and what needed to be repaired. Reasonably priced too! Would HIGHLY recommend this company!

Called on an extremely hot evening with little to no hope of having anyone come out. Matt said he would be out within the hour and he arrived within thirty minutes. He assessed the problem and then explained it to myself and my room mate. He set off to work and it was dark outside. He continuously kept us updated on the progress and was extremely knowledgeable in helping us understand what went wrong. Matt was amazing and will be recommended to anyone and everyone for his prompt service, his expertise and his saving the day. I am switching over to Professor Gatsby now for all hearing and air conditioning needs! Thank you for your help!

Very professional and clean! Matt and his crew did a wonderful job. They replaced our entire HVAC system, added a second return duct and installed a new water heater. Now our system is now well balanced on all floors and with the recent hot weather it really showed. After a few days Matt followed up with us just to see how everything was working and if I had any concerns. I said I couldn't be happier with everything overall. I would definitely recommend Professor Gatsby's.

So Matt came out at 9pm on Sunday night to check my AC. He diagnosed and fixed the issue in an hour and charged me an extremely reasonable fee. I'm extremely happy we found this company because if I ever have another issue I don't have to be nervous about who might come out. I'd pay what he charged me just for the peace of mind. Extremely knowledgeable and trustworthy

Saturday morning ... snow expected in the afternoon ... and ... of course ... our heater goes out. We are fortunate enough to know the owner of Professor Gatsby's Heating and Cooling and he was our first call. I can not rave enough about not only the quality of the service ... but the ethics that drive the company are unsurpassed ... especially in their industry. I would not, and do not, hesitate to recommend Professor Gatsby's for all of your heating and cooling needs. Reputable, reasonable, responsible, caring and ethical. What else could you possible ask for in a heating and cooling contractor? Thanks, Matt ... and continued success to you and your company!!!
