Maintenance and Repair

Cassidy Care Program

At John C. Cassidy, we believe that regular professional preventive maintenance of your cooling and heating system is the most important thing a home or business owner can do to ensure longevity and operational efficiency. All brands of air conditioners provide more comfort and stand a better chance of longer life and efficient operation when regularly maintained.

As a member of the Cassidy Care Program, not only will your system be running at maximum efficiency to save money on your electric bill, you will receive priority service scheduling with a 20% discount on all service repairs.

At each Cassidy Care Program service call, we: 

  • Check, clean, or replace filter for efficient operation
  • Check and clean condensate drain pan and drain line, preventing water damage
  • Check and calibrate thermostat to ensure even temperature
  • Check and lubricate all bearings, reducing wear
  • Check expansion valve for peak efficiency and maximum cooling
  • Check, clean, and remove all vegetation from outdoor coil
  • Check and tighten electrical connections
  • Check and electronically measure amperage draw
  • Check fan blade to ensure they are tightly fastened
  • Check, adjust or replace belts for proper airflow
  • Check operation of heat
  • Check temperature difference
  • Check refrigerant level
  • Check pumping capacity of compressor
  • Check start and run capacitors
  • Check evaporator coil

Why you should consider the Cassidy Care Program

Today, service plans are available for virtually everything, from automobiles to kitchen appliances. While the extra cost to purchase protection for a toaster oven might be debatable, the cost of a maintenance plan for your cooling and heating system relative to the cost of repair or replacement if your unit is not properly maintained is not. Here’s why:

  • 90 percent of system breakdowns on units less than 10 years old could have been prevented had the unit been regularly and properly maintained by a professional.
  • On average, a single repair costs as much as twice the price of a basic maintenance plan, three times the price of a single system tune-up, and 50 times the price of replacing your entire system.
  • A maintenance plan is not the same as insurance because you’re receiving regular tangible service on your system to help prevent mechanical and electrical breakdown.

In addition to the peace of mind you get from knowing the likelihood of a system breakdown is significantly reduced, regularly maintained cooling and heating systems:

  • Run more efficiently
  • Cost less to operate
  • Last longer than unmaintained systems
  • Provide better cooling and heating airflow
  • Provide higher quality indoor air

We offer annual schedules of preventive maintenance service calls, including monthly, bimonthly, quarterly, and twice a year. We can also customize a plan just for you. We service homeowners with a single unit up to estates with complex environmental needs, and commercial properties with industrial-sized comfort control systems. At John C. Cassidy, no job is too big or small.

Equipment Installation

The Installation Experts

No home or business owner likes the idea of having to replace a cooling and heating system. It’s a big investment. Fortunately, with regular professional maintenance and repair using top-quality components, we can often bring even older systems back to like-new performance. However, like anything mechanical, even the best cared-for air conditioning system ages enough that replacement becomes more cost-effective than repair, especially when the leaps in technology and efficiency of new systems are considered.

At John C. Cassidy, we carry only the highest quality brand names in the industry, including Trane, Carrier, Rheem, Ruud, Amana, and York. With more than 50 years in business serving the community of Palm Beach County, we have tens of thousands of hours of experience installing new residential and commercial systems.

Because being without air conditioning for even a day in South Florida can be a daunting experience, we’ve streamlined the process to same-day service for complete system replacement in most cases.

In the event of a system failure, a factory-trained John C. Cassidy technician will be dispatched quickly to assess your situation. Highly skilled at system diagnostics, the technician will explain your options. Some mechanical breakdowns can be repaired on the spot; other repairs are either not possible because of the age of the unit, or are not cost-effective versus replacing the system.

In the event of replacement, one of our HVAC specialists is quickly dispatched to your home or business to assess your needs, wants, and budget. Like purchasing any appliance for your home or business, there are options, and the details of each will be thoroughly explained.

At John C. Cassidy, you will never be “sold.” Our representatives serve to guide you through the process, offering input only when you want it. We firmly believe that this approach is what is responsible for John C. Cassidy forging lifelong relationships with our thousands of satisfied customers.

Installation Technical Team

Renovating your home or business? Adding on square footage? Depending on the age and design of your current air conditioning system, replacement or additional units might not be necessary. Often, existing components can be altered or relocated to accommodate design changes in your home or business. But the time to get a John C. Cassidy HVAC specialist involved is during the planning stages, when even a minor alteration in design — with little to no difference in aesthetics — could save you thousands of dollars in retrofitting your existing cooling and heating system.

Our installation technicians not only have years of cooling and heating experience, but also undergo rigorous specialized construction-related training in order to be able to seamlessly marry the architectural elements of a renovation with the required HVAC functionality. The talent of our Installation Technical Team is second to none in the industry, and is as much an art as it is a technical skillset.
