When you think of the difference between a “good” HVAC company and a “great” one, what kinds of things come to mind? Maybe you see a great HVAC company as one that’s dependable and will be there for you quickly whenever you need them. Or maybe your idea of a great company is one that can save you as much money as possible, always providing you with lower prices than the competition. At your Top Rated Local® Heating & Cooling company, Jay Mechanical, we aren’t just dependable and affordable, we aim to provide you with the highest quality heating, ventilation, plumbing, and air conditioning installation and repair services the industry has to offer. To us, being a “great” HVAC company means always looking for ways to make the experience better for our customers.

Air Conditioning Services

Air conditioning is an important part of maintaining your home’s safety and comfortability. But what use is an air conditioner if it doesn’t work when you need it to? Our highest priority is to provide each of our clients with efficient and reliable AC systems before the hot summer weather kicks in and that requires timeliness and dependability so that you, the client, get the products and services you need, right when you need them.

Whether you need air conditioning installation, air conditioning maintenance, or air conditioning repair, we’ll complete the job on time and with no hassle to you so that you won’t have to wait around for a specialist to show up, wondering if the job will even get done. Not only does this leave you without air conditioning for the summer, but it you’ll have less trust in HVAC contractors. At Jay Mechanical, we’ll get the job done correctly and on time so that you won’t have to worry about our credibility the next time you need our services.

Air Conditioning Installation

Having a functioning and efficient air conditioning system doesn’t just keep you comfortable, it can have a significant impact on the condition of your home and the health of you and your family. And if you want your AC system installed before the hottest days of the year kick in, you’ll need to call an HVAC company that will work around your busy schedule and won’t make things unnecessarily difficult for you. Jay Mechanical, Inc. recommends and is an authorized dealer for Maytag heating and air conditioning systems but we install and have experience with all HVAC makes and models including, but not limited to:

  • Fujitsu
  • American Standard / Trane
  • Bryant / Carrier
  • Lennox / Ducane
  • Goodman / Daikin
  • York / Luxaire
  • Mitsubishi

The problem with trusting in an inexperienced HVAC technician for your air conditioning installation is that they often won’t have the resources or capacity to pull off an installation that they already scheduled. However, at Jay Mechanical, our experience allows us to know how long each repair or installation will take, meaning we never get behind and we’re always able to provide you with the service you need, exactly when you scheduled it. Below are some of the most important benefits of having a working air conditioner:


Chances are, you need air conditioning installation services because you’re uncomfortable in a hot and stuffy home.This is a valid reason, and one that causes most homeowners to get their system checked every year. Think about it, you spend thousands on your home each year, so why would you live with a suboptimal AC system that will make you want to spend less time in the home that you invest so much into?

Improved sleep

Many homeowners claim that they’re willing to put up with a faulty air conditioning system, or none at all. However, what many don’t realize is that they’re losing sleep or the ability to function their best in this environment. Instead of waking up refreshed and ready to start a new day, those without air conditioners often times feel groggy and exhausted. Being in a hot and stuffy room constantly can be taxing on your body and make you feel sick.

Air quality

Many people don’t realize that their air conditioner is also an air filter; it’s designed to circulate and filter air throughout your home, removing harmful allergens and dirt particles from the air. If you or a family member suffers from allergies or asthma this will cause a lot of health issues that could be avoided with an efficient AC system. If your air isn’t being circulated, these contaminants will stay in the air or get stuck in your carpet or furniture.


Some homeowners will avoid having a new air conditioning system installed because of the cost or commitment. Although this will help you save money temporarily, in the long run, it will lead to unnecessary and avoidable costs. Homes that remain hot and humid can potentially grow mold, mildew, and other harmful allergens. Additionally, any wood or furniture in your home may be damaged by the extreme temperatures and humidity. Instead of investing your time and money into fixing these things, have an AC system installed that will keep your home cool.

Running an old, broken, or inefficient AC system will also result in higher costs, so the sooner you can get it replaced, the better.

Anytime you call Jay Mechanical for air conditioning installation services, you can rest assured that you’re getting the highest quality care in the industry. We will work closely with you to understand exactly what you want out of your system and install a system that is best for your home and price range. We are experienced with installing all types of systems, so there’s no need to worry that your options may be limited.

AC Maintenance

It’s generally safe practice to have your AC system checked, serviced, and cleaned at least once a year. Just like anything in your home, your air conditioning will begin to operate less efficiently if left unchecked. Parts can wear out or it may be too dirty to cool your home properly. Not only will you be saving money on energy bills, but your system will last longer before needing to be replaced. Ideally, you’ll want to have your system checked right before the warm weather kicks in. This way, you’ll be able to save money when you need it the most.

AC duct cleaning  

Air duct cleaning is an important part of maintaining your air conditioning system and your home. This process usually includes cleaning the fan motor and fan housing, the air handling unit housing, cooling coils, condensate drain pans, grilles, diffusers, and registers. If these aren’t properly installed in the first place or are rarely ever checked by a certified specialist, they may become contaminated with dust, pollen, or other harmful pollutants.

Another issue that occurs with ducts is that if moisture is present, your chances of developing microbiological growth like mold will increase. Spores from this mold will spread throughout your home and reduce the air quality significantly. If you or anyone living in your home has allergies or asthma, this could lead to serious health issues.

When you call an expert at Jay Mechanical, not only will you be trusting in a certified HVAC technician to clean your ducts, but we guarantee that it will be a thorough cleaning that provides you and your family with the safety and comfort you deserve. Often times, inexperienced cleaners will try to scam homeowners with overpriced duct cleaning services and usually, these companies don’t even have the certification to do so.

AC repair

Where “maintenance” implies regular checkups on your air conditioning system, if you ever experience an issue with your AC system, you should call Jay Mechanical for repairs. Whenever we install an AC unit, we set it up to last as long as possible without repairs. However, your system may require repairs for one reason or another, especially if it was installed by an unreliable HVAC company. Here are several reasons you may need repairs on your AC system:

Old filters

One of the most common causes of a poorly functioning air conditioning unit is an old, dirty air filter. If you leave an air filter too long without being replaced, it can lead to air flow problems and eventually lead to frozen coils. It’s important that you replace your air filters every month or two and you choose one that is right for your system and home. The effectiveness of your air filter is measured by its Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value (MERV rating). Speak with an HVAC specialist at Jay Mechanical to learn more about air filters.

Low refrigerant

Refrigerant is what causes your air conditioner to remove heat and humidity from your home. Over time, your refrigerant lines may start to leak and your air conditioner won’t have enough refrigerant to cool the air. When you hire a certified HVAC technician, they will locate and repair the holes in the line. Replacing the refrigerant usually won’t fix the problem in and of itself.

Frozen evaporator coils

Evaporator coils absorb heat from the air and are filled with refrigerant. These coils need warm air circulating around them in order to work correctly. If the evaporator coil gets cold due to a problem with the airflow, a layer of ice may form and you won’t be getting any cooling.

Issues with your fans

There are several fans in your cooling system, one that takes indoor air and blows it over your evaporator coil and another that pushes air over the unit’s condenser outside. Faulty motors, worn belts, dirt, or lack of lubrication can cause these fans to malfunction and lead to poor airflow. If left unchecked it could result in a compressor failure.

Thermostat issues

Air conditioning issues may simply come down to a communication error between the system and your thermostat. Whether you have an old dial-type thermostat or a new programmable thermostat, a certified HVAC specialist will be able to get in and recalibrate the device for you.

Clogged Drains

Like we mentioned earlier, your air conditioner actually removes humidity from the air. This moisture is removed through a drain line. However, if it gets clogged, it can ruin your system and result in mold growth.

These are just a few of the common issues you may run into with your air conditioner unit. If you have encountered one of these or any other issue, call Jay Mechanical for air conditioner repairs in Essex.
