Routine Maintenance Inspections
Each year your air conditioning system is not regularly maintained, it loses nearly 5% of its original efficiency. Don’t ignore one of the largest most intricate systems in your home or you’ll end up with more problems and you’ll spend more money to run it. The best way to avoid the issues and save money on your energy bill is to have routine maintenance performed.
Our team of professional technicians will perform a variety of important maintenance tasks depending on the size and type of AC System you have:
- Cleaning coils and radiator to clear them of debris that will make your unit less efficient
- Ensure the unit has proper refrigerant levels
- Clean debris from inside your Air Handler
- Check all Air Filters to see if they need to be replaced
- Inspect compressor and associated tubing for any damage
- Ensure the drain is clear of debris and draining condensation away from your unit properly
Maintenance Plans Save You Money!
When an AC unit isn’t operating at 100% efficiency, it requires more electricity to keep the environment cool. If your AC is lacking in efficiency it might not be resting as much as it could, costing you money every month.
When you schedule routine AC maintenance in Jupiter, technicians will inspect, identify, and resolve minor problems with your unit before they get worse and require repair.
Failing to maintain your AC System can result if having the replace the system entirely before you should need to. Damaged coils and overworked components can be worn out early requiring the system to be replace rather than repaired.

What Our Customers Say
“As a long time family owned/operated business ourselves, we like to work with other family owned/operated businesses; which is the heart of our small town community. When we have customers, with roof mount A/C systems, we need a good and reliable A/C company to work with us. Scottie and his crew are all extremely knowledgeable and professional. They take into consideration the time we need to complete the roof work and make sure they are there to get our customers cooled off again, as quickly as possible...which is a blessing during these excruciating summer months.
Recently, our business office had our 27 year old A/C system stop working. Of course it was on an extremely hot day. Scottie came right out to look at it, ordered the new system and his crew got us back up and running in no time."
Ron Worley | Worley Roofing
“Once again, Brown Mechanical Services has proven to be a great company.
They promptly responded to my AC 88 degrees and climbing. Even after working hours Scottie was at our home within an hour. His knowledge and experince had our AC repaired and back to cooling our home. We made the right AC purchase and maintenance when chose Brown's Mechanical for our AC professionals! Thank you for going above and beyond all the rest!!"
Lisa Westmoreland | Jupiter, FL
“There's no job too big or too small for this family owned business. They answer calls/text messages in a timely manner, come out right away to assess the issue and have the problem fixed in no time flat. Even if parts need to be ordered, Scottie is on it and makes sure his customers are not without A/C for very long. Their crew is absolutely amazing! They are all very friendly, professional, and knowledgeable."
Candice Williams | Palm Beach Gardens
“I have used Brown Mechanical to tune up and repair my HVAC system over the last few years. They are a professional, family run, small business and they treat their customers fairly. They have the technical know how to fix and extend the life of your existing HVAC. When another contractor recommended I replace our entire HVAC system, I got a second opinion, it was from Scottie and Tiffany Brown. That opinion turned into a Float Switch/Sensor replacement vs entire unit replacement - saved me thousands. HVAC still works and is maintained by Brown Mechanical."
Justin Hoysradt | Jupiter Farms
Warning Signs of AC Repair Problems
The warning signs that your Air Conditioning system may need ac repair range from the system just not working to strange noises and smells. Don't wait until it breaks to have it serviced!
Some customers report hearing loud buzzing or shaking noises coming from their system, this can often be a simple loose vent however it can also indicate large issue that can cause costly damage to your system!
Leaking water from your AC System can cause a lot of damage to your home. If you notice water coming from the area around your system turn off the AC System and call us for an ac repair. A clogged drain line is the likely culprit, but an evaluation of protection systems should also be done!
Some homeowners may notice, when changing filters or inspecting their systems, that there is ice building up on the coils. This can be caused by multiple factors, but should be inspected by a technician. If ignored this can result in the AC System no longer functioning or even damage.

How Often Should I Change My AC Filter?
You should be changing your air filter at least monthly at a minimum. A clean filter is a good filter. You shouldn’t wait until your filter is dirty to change it. We recommend using a subscription service online to make it easier to remember. This is the single easiest way to extend the life of your AC unit and improve your indoor air quality.
Is There Anything I Can Do to Make My AC More Energy Efficient?
Here are a few easy ways to minimize your energy use and cooling costs in the South Florida heat:
- Change the air conditioning filter at least monthly with a high quality filter.
- Make sure all air vents are open and unrestricted.
- Get a programmable thermostat so your AC doesn’t run continually when you’re gone.
- Do regular maintenance. We recommend at least bi-annually or every six months.
How Often Does My AC Need Maintenance?
Your AC should have maintenance done at least every 6 months, sometimes more depending on usage and lifestyle. If you are running more, have kids, dogs, or a lot of activity in the home, consider quarterly maintenance. Regular preventive service can extend the life of your unit. A clean filter prevents breakdowns and has a positive effect on the air quality in your home.
At Brown Mechanical, we offer an annual Maintenance Program. Avoid costly emergencies and long wait times. Having a Professional Maintenance Schedule will significantly reduce drain clogs, improves efficiency of the unit, and prolongs the life of your system. As a bonus with our program, you will receive 10% off any other service.
What is the Average Life of an Air Conditioner?
The average life of your AC Unit will vary greatly depending on:
- How well the system was maintained and
- The quality of the unit that was originally installed.
In our area here in Jupiter and surrounding Palm Beach County, it is usually between 10-15 years if maintained properly. To get the most out of your unit, invest in a quality product and maintain it on a regular basis.
