Professor’s Tips – Things to know about your new AC system

Professor’s Tip of the week!


Did you know that if you had your Heating and Air system replaced during the winter time, the refrigerant levels need to rechecked? The contractor should come back in the spring and check the refrigerant levels. Most customers and even some contractors don’t know that most manufacturers’ state that in order to check the refrigerant levels properly, the outside temp needs to be between 65 and 75 degrees.


Why does this matter to you?


Effects of Lower Refrigerant levels:

  • Too little refrigerant can actually drop the temp in the cooling coil, causing frost buildup
  • Loss of cooling ability because of the decreased heat exchange between indoor & outdoor units
  • Inefficient operation, causing higher utility bills $$$$$$
  • Strain on compressor in outdoor unit. It works harder, can cause issues like tripped circuit breaker
  • There are side effects of both having too little and too much. Either of the two can lead to an inefficient system and decreased system life expectancy.
  • We believe in providing value through education to our customers. After all, the more you know, the better decision you will make on your investment.
  • Call Professor Gatsby’s to check out your system.

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!!!
