Amazing Service! My air conditioning went out overnight and I sent out messages via yelp to get quotes. Brown HVAC got back to me immediately and was able to set up an appointment to have their team out at my condo by 10 AM. Enjoli was extremely responsive and organized in having the appointments arranged as well as the payments. They were able to install My new unit within two days. On site, the team was really kind and professional. Went out of their way to clean up after themselves and did a fantastic job. Highly recommend!

Air conditioner went out on the hottest day of the year. I inquired on Brown’s website and almost immediately got a text back from Ramod. He came out within 2-3 hours and gave us three options. We ended up getting our unit replaced. After sourcing some other friends, the pricing was right in line with the industry average around Chicago. Their techs came out and were very professional. I highly recommend them for all of your HVAC needs.

My AC (21 years old) quit working during a 90 degree heat wave. It took only 24 hours from the time I contracted Browns to the complete installation of a new unit. They left my place clean. The team was pleasant and nice; they explained everything they were doing

My dog chewed on the wires in the back of the unit so I needed services quickly in the heat we were having. Browns heating and cooling was the first company to reach out to set up an appointment. Technician Raymod came out and fixed the issue quickly. I am satisfied with the services and will reach out again!


What are the signs that I need an AC Recharge Service from Browns Heating & Cooling?

The primary signs that you might require an AC Recharge Service include a decrease in your air conditioning system’s cooling capacity, longer cooling times, or the system blowing warm air. This could be due to low Freon levels, often caused by leaks in the system. At Browns Heating & Cooling, our skilled technicians can diagnose these problems and ensure your AC unit is recharged and operating efficiently.

How does low Freon affect my air conditioner, and how does Browns Heating & Cooling address this?

Low Freon levels can significantly reduce your air conditioner’s cooling efficiency. It may lead to inadequate cooling, longer cycle times, and even damage the compressor. Browns Heating & Cooling handles this issue through a thorough system inspection to detect any potential leaks, followed by properly recharging the system with high-quality Freon to restore its cooling efficiency.

I'm dealing with a refrigerator leak. Can Browns Heating & Cooling help me?

Absolutely, Browns Heating & Cooling isn’t limited to air conditioner services. Our team is adept at handling refrigerator leaks too, which can cause significant inconveniences and even potential health risks if left unchecked. Our certified technicians can promptly and effectively address these issues, ensuring your appliance is back to its best condition in no time.

What types of refrigerants does Browns Heating & Cooling use for AC recharge, and what are the costs?

Browns Heating & Cooling primarily uses two types of refrigerants for AC recharge – R22 and R410. The cost for these refrigerants varies due to their different properties. R22 is more expensive at $295 per pound as it’s being phased out. On the other hand, R410 is slightly less costly, ranging between $195-$225 per pound. Each AC system requires different amounts of refrigerant. Rest assured, our professionals will ensure your system gets the right amount for optimal performance.

Why is R22 more expensive than R410?

The price difference between R22 and R410 is primarily due to the fact that R22 is being phased out due to environmental concerns. This has led to a reduction in its production and, in turn, has increased its cost. Despite being more expensive, it’s still necessary for some older AC systems that aren’t compatible with other refrigerants. Our experts will evaluate your system and use the appropriate refrigerant to ensure optimal cooling efficiency.

Can Browns Heating & Cooling help if I'm unsure about which type of refrigerant my AC system uses?

Definitely. At Browns Heating & Cooling, our certified technicians have the expertise to determine the correct type of refrigerant for your AC system. They will inspect your unit, identify the right refrigerant, and then recharge the system accordingly. This ensures your system operates at its maximum efficiency, and you get the comfort you deserve.
