These guys are great. I've now had them replace both my AC and Furnace, and I've found them to be efficient, fair, organized and professional. My furnace is in a really odd place and it the crew a bit longer than expected to get it in there, but they stayed way past normal hours to ensure the job got done in the time frame they quoted. Highly recommend Browns!

We can’t say enough good things about the team at Brown’s Heating and Cooling. We had a stubborn and complicated AC repair involving a pierced coolant line deep in a wall. Ramod, the owner, was vigilant and attentive every step of the way, from diagnosing the problem to coming up with multiple creative solutions as several unexpected obstacles cropped up in the process. He was always friendly, responsive, professional, and on time. We wholeheartedly recommend Brown’s.

The technician was super fast, professional and gave me all the options to get our AC units fixed. We came home from vacation to a really hot house and in no time they got us back on track.

I needed to replace a 20-year-old furnace and had the benefit of time to gather quotes from several different businesses. Browns Heating & Cooling not only came in under the average cost, they made communication super easy; most of our conversations were handled via email and *text message*, which was truly invaluable for me. Once I selected Browns, they scheduled an appointment for full replacement in just 2 days.In person, the technicians were very professional, did an amazing job at protecting my floors and space from dust, and completed the swap from old to new furnace in less than two hours.I will absolutely return to Browns next time I have an HVAC need!

Ramod from Browns Heating and Cooling was incredibly helpful and quick to fix our issue with our AC! He immediately had parts ordered and came out the next morning to replace our condenser fan. He was extremely professional and we were very satisfied with our experience. Definitely will be using them again in the future!

Ramod came to my house and immediately knew what was wrong with my system. Browns Heating & Cooling team installed my new system and I am very happy with my final result. Cleaned up behind themselves and the whole time at my house were very professional. If you want the honest truth give them a call.

My A/C Unit went out over a holiday weekend. Browns was very quick to respond to my inquiry and even came out on a Sunday over the holiday weekend to diagnose the issue. When they determined I needed a new unit they explained my options and provided me with a quote for the project the same day. They scheduled my install very quickly and were very professional installing the new equipment. They checked in after the techs completed the job and made sure everything was going smoothly during the install. Everything has been working great and I am very pleased. Would definitely call Browns again!

I found this company on Google and so glad I did. My central air unit went out in my home during these hot days and I didn't want to go with a big commercial company. Browns from start to finish was very helpful, very professional and very friendly. They guided me through every step of the way with different options in pricing and financing. They even contacted me on the holiday when they were closed to let me know they had an opening first thing the next day to install my new AC and furnace because they knew it was going to be extremely hot outside. Raymond and his team came in and did an awesome job, they were very nice, very knowledgeable and professional. They cleaned up behind themselves and you never knew they had been there. My home is very cool and comfortable and I will be a loyal customer for a long time. I highly recommend them.

I contacted Browns Heating & Cooling for an estimate and they were super responsive. I initially didn’t book right away because I wanted to compare prices before making a final decision. They were not pushy about me shopping around; which was greatly appreciated. I finally decided on selecting them to install central air and they were great! Professional during the estimates and the install. Timely, responsive and I truly appreciate their hard work. I would definitely book with them for all central air services or maintenance.

My AC was not cooling as well as it should. I called another company who began pricing me on a new AC unit without even checking mine out. BUT when I called Browns, not only did they arrive the same day and on time, but the technician thoroughly assessed the issue, and gave me 3 options. Replacement was one of them. He was extremely personable and open and honest about the longevity of each option. In times where there are so many shady trades people, it's so nice to have a person who knows what they are doing perform quality work at a fair price. I will definitely be using Browns again and will be referring them to others for heating and cooling needs.


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.
