BC Express review scores as of 8/22/22

A woman tries to cool off in front of a fan as she dabs her forehead with a tissue.It’s a scorching summer day. You’ve been outside, and you’re feeling hot and uncomfortable. You can’t wait to come inside and enjoy some cool relief from your home air conditioning system. But the minute you step inside, you can tell something’s wrong. It’s hot and muggy inside, too. Your air conditioning system isn’t working. You just want to cool down, and you need to find a solution – quickly.

Fortunately, sometimes there’s a simple solution. Before you call in the pros, check for these possible problems first:

  1. Check your breaker. If it’s been tripped, that can cause your air conditioner to stop working.
  2. Check your filter. If it’s dirty or clogged, it could be blocking your AC. Hopefully cleaning it or changing it will get your system back up and running without a problem again.
  3. Check your evaporator coils and refrigerant line for ice. If there is ice on the line, allow it to melt and check again to see if your fan is working.

If none of these concerns seems to be the problem, or if you’ve tried to remedy the concerns yet your system is still not operable, chances are you’ll need to call in a professional.

BC Express can help, but what can you do to stay cool while you’re waiting?


For a cooling emergency,
CALL or CLICK:

732-240-2828

At BC Express, we pride ourselves with prompt emergency service, but there are a few things you can do to keep comfortable while you’re waiting for us to arrive.

  • Take a cold bath or shower. This can be especially helpful if you’ve been in the hot, sticky outdoors. This will help you cool down quickly and keep you feeling refreshed.
  • Drink lots of water. It helps you stay hydrated and helps your body keep you cooler. It’s especially important to make sure you drink plenty when it’s really hot outside.
  • Enjoy some frozen treats. Popsicles, frozen yogurt, even frozen grapes and berries are delicious ways to keep cool while you wait.
  • Use fans. While fans don’t actually cool the air, they help keep the air in your home moving, which helps the sweat on your skin evaporate so you feel cooler. Make sure your ceiling fans are on, and use strategically placed oscillating fans to keep the air circulating from room to room.
  • Put your towels in the freezer. Well, not all of them, and probably not your big ones. But, dampen a couple of washcloths and place them in the freezer, and they’ll make great cold compresses to place on your forehead and neck, which will help you cool down.

At BC Express, you – and your comfort – are important to us.

A word of caution: in extreme heat, it’s important to note your health and the health of those around you. The elderly, infants, and those with health concerns can struggle when it’s very hot out. In these cases, you may want to seek an air-conditioned space until help arrives.

Of course, at BC Express we make every effort to get you the AC repair assistance you need as quickly as possible. All you have to do is just give us a call at 732-240-2828 and we’ll be happy to help you get the air conditioning repairs you need.

Seamless Process from Start to Finish

"Our Experience with BC Express was excellent from start to finish. Doug gave us very fair estimate that far exceeded the other quotes that we had received for a new air conditioning system including all new ductwork. The technicians arrived on time. Brian and Sam were very efficient, professional, helpful, knowledgeable and left the house (inside and outside) as clean as when they arrived. Brian educated us on the new thermostat.

I would definitely recommend BC Express! They were the best and made the process seamless from start to finish!"

Took the Time to Answer All of Our Questions

"I knew I had to upgrade my heat, air and hot water heater. I found BC Express through NJNG website. Absolute BEST phone call I ever made. From meeting Douglas to discuss our options to upgrade our entire system, Donna and Jimmy to get us scheduled, and Joe and Alex to complete the work. Everyone was exceptional. Our work was completed in two and a half days which was amazing with two furnaces and condensers! Work was completed neatly and Joe even took the time to answer all of our questions through the process! I highly recommend BC Express for any HVAC needs!!!!"

By Far the Best, Most Reliable HVAC Company Around

"BC Express and their technician Savas, saved us again in this sweltering heat wave with their excellent service. Sadly we purchased a new HVAC system from another company because we didn’t know about BC Express at the time and have had nothing but trouble. The OTHER COMPANY told us they could come repair our AC in 5 to 7 days earlier in the month when we called - BC was there in a couple of hours twice in one month and diagnosed and fixed the problem both times. Thankfully we were able to get our service contract with them. They are by far the best, most reliable HVAC company around from the office staff to their technicians.
Thank you BC Express!"

Understanding and Flexible

"BC Express was great in helping with the NJ Natural Gas rebate and loan program. After we were approved for the program and scheduled the install, we had a water leak in our kitchen. That could have derailed everything but BC Express was so understanding and flexible that they helped us work through the challenges. We are very happy with their service and the system they installed."
