5 Tips for a Winning Air Conditioner Performance This Spring
For many racing fans, May is an exciting month, culminating with the wildly anticipated Indianapolis 500 on May 26. And it got us thinking: What does it take to make those Indy Cars run smoothly each racing season? Plenty! We’re pretty sure it takes lots of maintenance, elbow grease, and a few filter changes—much like the preparation involved in spring air conditioning maintenance.
So let’s shift gears and talk about your summer AC tune-up. Is your home prepared? After all, summer is just around the corner! And if you want to avoid AC repair in St. Charles County, MO, later on in the hot and sweaty season, now is the time to get things revved up and ready to go!
Here are five ways you can improve the performance of your AC system this season:
Clean or change your air filters. This is probably the easiest thing for every homeowner to do! Change your air filters regularly or clean them if you have washable filters. The cleaner your filters, the less work your system has to do to keep your home cool.
Check your lines. Inspect your refrigerant lines—these pipes are typically wrapped in insulation and look like a pool noodle. If you notice any cracks or disconnections, you can prevent problems by calling Jerry Kelly for a quick fix. If everything looks fine, you’re good for another season.
Inspect that outside unit. The effects of a long winter can take a toll on your outdoor unit. Check for nests, twigs, grass, weeds, or other debris that could be wrapped around the outside unit. Cleaning away debris that has accumulated over the winter months will help your system run more efficiently.
Clean those vents and ducts. Take a vacuum to those return vents and remove any dust bunnies that have taken over. You might consider professional duct cleaning, too. Clean ducts allow an AC system to run at top efficiency and cut back on air pollutants that make their way into your home.
Get a tune-up. By far the most effective way to cut back on summer repairs is to get a spring tune-up now from your friends at Jerry Kelly! Our experienced technicians will thoroughly clean your condenser coils, lubricate moving parts, evaluate refrigerant levels, calibrate your thermostat, tighten electrical connections, inspect ductwork, and more!

Jerry Kelly was able to get a tech out on a Saturday morning well before the appointment. Jerry A. was friendly, happy to explain everything he was doing and went above and beyond in every way possible. He even took a moment to accept the toy our dog brought to him and give him some pets and love. Anyone who needs HVAC service or repair should call them. Don't try to save a buck and have a friend of a friend patch things only for them to break shortly after. Call the people who know what they're doing!! Thanks again Jerry A.
Graham Blackhurst saved me in a pinch on Memorial Day weekend and made me and wife incredibly happy. Professional, informative, comprehensive, and honest. Truly appreciate all his hard work will use again.
Jerry A. Was absolutely amazing! He was incredibly pleasant and very informative! He set me up with a membership and a ton of knowledge about my ac. Did I mention that i put in an appointment request online on the Sunday before Memorial Day and he was here same day, just hours after the request was sent? I could not be happier with my experience today! Five stars do no justice!
Follow on business and Dalton did a great job with my ac tune up.I never go out of my way to fill our a survey or recommend anything it is not in my nature but I feel I have to let everyone know how great Tammy (dispatch) and John your tech did an excellent job.I have never called an AC repair person ever so needless to say I was hesitant and nervous especially about being ripped off.That being said Tammy explained the pricing for everything and it was simple so I proceeded. John came our 30 minutes from within me calling at 7 pm and was wrapped up about 9 pm.John answered all my questions even though I may have bugged him so I was comfortable with what he was doing. I will definitely be a return customer for our heater and servicing that in the fall.
Jerry Ayyad just came by my house to service my furnace and AC units. Very friendly, polite, and professional.Would definitely recommend using Jerry Kelly’s services especially if all of the technicians are as great as Jerry A!
Heath is what makes jerry kelly. Customer service, knowledge and very personable. The bees knees. We need more Heath workers in the world.Thank you!Andrew came out today and fixed my my ac for summer !
Graham and Tyler came out today to service our AC and Furnace. They did a wonderful job today. Their first job ran a little late but they called ahead of time to let me know and make sure that it wouldn't be an issue. Tyler was in training and so the visit took a little longer than what I'm used to but I'd rather they be thorough and not miss anything than rush. Both gentlemen were very courteous and polite. I couldn't have asked for better service.
Dalton did a great job tuning up our A/C and gas furnace, including replacing a failed part in the A/C compressor and increasing gas pressure in the furnace, which should make both run more efficiently. Diagnosed issues in the humidifier and UV irradiation light for the A/C, which we will consider getting repaired.
Jerry Kelly Heating and Cooling Achieves Impressive Victory! Last night, it wasn't just the St. Louis Cardinals who emerged victorious. HVAC Technician Zach B proved to be a formidable player, successfully resolving my HVAC blower issue. Tracking down the source of WiFi interference that was causing our blower to constantly short cycle was no small feat. Zach displayed unwavering determination as he tackled the problem head-on, ultimately hitting a home run for Team Kelly. As long-time customers of Jerry Kelly, we have already purchased two complete systems from them. Their commitment to standing behind their work and ensuring customer satisfaction is truly commendable. Zach exemplifies the high standards upheld by the entire Jerry Kelly team. Without hesitation, we wholeheartedly recommend Jerry Kelly Heating and Cooling for all your HVAC service and installation needs. P.S. Don't forget to specifically request Zach B. Team Kelly is fortunate to have such a customer-focused service technician on their roster.
The service to repair my ac unit was professional and I received a call the next day after diagnosis of the problem. The service tech mike was knowledgeable and did a great job in repairing my ac unit.
Technician arrived at my house early, diagnosed the problems, took measurements which was sent to a fabrication team for making my new ducts and plenum, and had a crew headed out to my house the same day for a furnace, a-coil and condensing unit install. The technician left my house after noon and said that they normally don't start big installs like that after noon, but he was adamant that the crew would be there to perform the work and it would take 6 to 8 hours. The crew showed up around 1:30pm and left my house around 6:45. So it basically only took them 5 hours to do the full install. Plus, I have a finished basement so they had to work in some tight spaces. However, they would have been done sooner, but they had trouble with their diagnostic testing equipment syncing up at the end of the install. They stayed until the diagnostic equipment synced up so they could run their rest. I'm not sure how those guys are compensated from Jerry Kelly, but they deserve a bonus for the work they performed. I highly recommend this service.
