Bradley Mechanical technicians are certified, professional, polite, and on time. Our techs will diagnose the problem in a quick and efficient manner. We examine the entire system as a whole. After the problem is found, we will continue to examine the system looking for anything that could cause a failure in the future. These issues will be brought to the homeowner’s attention and left to them to make the final decisions. Once all the issues are diagnosed, the tech will quote the repair/repairs to the homeowner using a flat rate price to ensure that the job costs what is quoted, no surprise charges. If anything comes up during the repair, the customer will be notified before our tech proceeds.
Calling Bradley Mechanical to do your service will be unlike any HVAC experience you have had in the past. We price on a flat rate pricing system, so if a job is quoted one price, it is going to remain that price even if it takes longer than expected. This takes the terror out of wondering how much this service call will cost you when it’s completed. Our techs are knowledgeable and professional, and most of all, honest. We will tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing else. You don’t stay in business for 44 years and have a strong loyal customer base from being dishonest about repairs and problems that don’t even exist. We pride ourselves on honest high-quality work and have been delivering on that promise for many, many years.
HVAC Installation – The Most Important Part
The most important day in the life of a heating and cooling system is the day of its install. Perfect install practices are what we execute on every installation. When we say perfect install practice, we mean there is more to it than just doing an aesthetically pleasing job. The processes in which the system comes together and the procedures used to put those pieces together surpass the visuals when it comes down to the performance and longevity of the system.
For example, we follow a 3-step process to ensure there are no contaminates inside the system. Step 1: When we braze in the outdoor and indoor coils, we purge the system with nitrogen to prevent oxidation inside the copper line set. This is VERY important because when there is oxygen present in the line set while brazing, oxidation occurs and is carried throughout the system causing restriction in the refrigerant flow. This lowers the efficiency due to clogging and gumming up in the compressor and expansion valves, which causes them to fail prematurely. Step 2: Pressurize the system with nitrogen to test the brazed joints for leaks. Pressurizing with nitrogen will continue to keep the system dry and clean of restrictions. Step 3: Ensure a proper vacuum has been pulled on the system. Most people will just hook up the vacuum pump and go about finishing up the job and then pull it off thinking it’s been on there long enough. Industry standard for vacuum pump down is 500 microns. This is determined with a micron gauge that is hooked up to your gauges. We surpass the industry standard and pull down 250-300 microns to ensure that the system is clean, leak free, and ready to be charged with refrigerant. We call this the purity process, and it is just the tip of the iceberg to why our install procedure is superior to the competition.
Attic installations come standard with our Ceiling Saver Plus package. This consists of a high quality, 26-gauge soldered corner drain pan with an overflow float safety switch. Coming out of the drain on the indoor unit will be a clear EZ-Trap© float switch with a brush to clear debris, making this the first line of defense against water damage in your attic. These components make up our Ceiling Saver Plus package, and with our semi-annual maintenance plan, we guarantee zero water damage from your HVAC unit in your attic or we will pay for the damages.
We also lay down a red carpet that will cover and protect your carpeted areas in the home or a white floor protector on your hardwood floors. All this and more comes standard with all of our installs.
