Is your Furnace Ready for the Fall & Winter Cold?
  • Turn your furnace on to check it is working before the cold hits.
  • Replace or clean the filter.
  • Hire a licensed Heating Professional per manufacturers recommendation to maintain, clean and keep safe. And save energy too!
A/C Tips:
  • Keep an 18″ to 36″ air space on all sides of outdoor AC units. Prune back shrubs & tree branches as needed. Keep a 3-4 foot air space above the unit. When planting, allow room for long term growth.
  • If building a fence, make sure it can be easily opened or removed. The unit needs to be serviced regularly: the service professional may need access to all sides.
  • Don’t let your dog urinate on unit.
  • When mowing the lawn, direct the mower away from the unit. A coil blocked with grass clippings and debris drastically reduces the efficiency.

Summer will arrive in the Steinbach area. That means that the uncomfortable, force-you-to-turn-on-your-A/C temperatures are here. When you turn on your air conditioner and it is not working quite as well as you expected it to: If that is the case, there’s a good chance that your A/C may have fallen victim to one of the following problems:

Inadequate Maintenance

Schedule a service appointment with Browns Plumbing and Heating!If you allow your filters and air conditioning coils to become dirty, your system will not work properly, potentially causing your compressor or fans to fail prematurely. Changing your filter monthly and ensuring that the outside condenser coil is kept clear of debris will allow the air conditioner to function more efficiently. For more sophisticated cleaning needs, you can always schedule a service appointment with a Browns Plumbing and Heating technician.

Drainage Problems

When it’s humid outside, check the condensate drain to make sure it isn’t clogged and that it is draining properly. Having your air conditioner properly maintained annually will prevent blocked drains.

If you’re air conditioner isn’t working at all, always remember to check your fuses/breakers and thermostat before calling a service technician. It’s never fun when you plan around having a technician visit your home, only to find out you didn’t really need them there at all.

Refrigerant Leaks

If your air conditioner is low on refrigerant, either it was undercharged at installation or it has a leak. If it leaks, simply adding refrigerant is not a proper solution. A licensed technician should be called to find and fix any leak, test and then charge the system with the correct amount of refrigerant.Remember that the performance and efficiency of your air conditioner is greatest when the refrigerant charge matches the manufacturer’s specifications, and is neither undercharged nor overcharged. Refrigerant leaks can also be harmful to the environment.There are also several other problems that can occur with your air conditioner. The best way to prevent them and keep your system running efficiently is with regular maintenance. Keeping your system healthy will keep it running smoothly for years to come.

After subscribing to Brown’s Plumbing and Heating MVP program for piece of mind, we had the pleasure of having Ryan perform a plumbing inspection on our home. We found him to be pleasant, thorough and professional. His knowledge impressed us. He found very few minor issues that didn’t require immediate attention. We decided to act on one, and expected a separate appointment to be made, yet Ryan fixed that immediately. You just can’t ask for better service than that! We made the right decision to contact Browns Plumbing and Heating, a family based business here in Steinbach.
