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!

Nick and Sandi came to clean out the air ducts, vents and to install a humidifier and UV light. It's used to actually clean the air before its distributed into your home! The team was amazing! They first take the time to answer questions and walk you through their process. Then after they cleaned up they tell you what you need to know for maintenance as well as things to look for. All their work is guaranteed and so far the company has has great response time for any questions or concerns I have had. Definitely a lifer, I strongly suggest signing up for their maintenance membership just to have your mind at ease!
JK was on it quick. Our system went down in the morning, they came out in a few hours and determined we needed a new system. The next day they were here and installed it in about 5 hours. Awesome experience with an awesome company
Jerry A. was the most helpful technician! He let us watch the entire process of how to change the air filter and walked us through every step. I would highly recommend his services! Very friendly and kind as well (:
Elliot was very professional and on time. He informed me on everything he was doing to help me understand the whole maintenance protocol. I Highly recommend Jerry Kelly to everyone who has any Heating/Cooling issues
Hello - Greg Borders and Colton just fixed a breaker after Greg diagnosed why the oven/range was not heating but the clock was working. It wasn’t getting enough power. They took the time to figure out what was happening, calling the office to see if they had the needed part and thankfully, they did. Greg installed it and they both tested the oven/range to make sure all was working and it did! I was told by Chris in the office that Greg is a tech guru and that is absolutely true. I cannot thank both Greg and Colton enough for their patience, time and expertise to fix the problem. They are amazing!
Graham was extremely professional and helpful. He took the time to provide a thorough service and to give me a full report about the current condition of my furnace. I highly recommend Graham and Jerry Kelly!
8 years into my new furnace, I had a part go bad one winter afternoon. I called Jerry Kelly around 3:50 and spoke to some one that put me on the emergency list… by 4:30 a tech Dalton N was at my door. Extremely professional, knowledgeable and fast. My heat was back on in about an hr and only paid for the service call….all parts covered under 10 yr warranty. I cannot recommend Jerry Kelly enough , and thank Dalton as well greatly appreciated
Elliot and Josh were just what my system needed! Humidifier was not working properly and they revived it. Also installed an electronic air cleaner. Yearly maintenance performed and humidity levels are normal again. Jerry Kelly does a great job every time! Thanks
Graham was friendly, knowledgeable, efficient and spent a LOT of time servicing my furnace and AC unit. He explained everything he did to my furnace and AC unit. He showed me why I needed to replace specific parts but was not pushy. Highly recommend Graham and Jerry Kelly.
Mike C. Was an amazing technician!! So professional and very knowledgeable. He listened to us and offered tons of advice. He was 100% honest with us about our system and what need to go moving forward. I would recommend Jerry Kelley and Mike to anyone.
Technician was thorough and knew from just the description where to start looking. Repair was straightforward and he was able to finish quickly and cleaned as he went. Great service for.the price and quick response - less than 24 hours.
Mike was amazing. I noticed the carbon monoxide levels in my house were getting high. I always have outstanding service with Jerry Kelly so, I called them immediately to have a technician come out. Mike quickly figured out what the issue was and set high priority to make sure it was taken care of. He made sure we were safe and that means a lot. Mike was extremely professional, fast, friendly and respectful. We can’t thank him enough for his help. I also want to thank Emily as I was a little scared when I called in. Emily helped calm me and assured me everything was going to be okay. Thank you Emily!
Had Jerry Kelly come out SUPER short notice to tell me my furnace needed replacing. Ended up having to use the company my home warranty wanted me to use, but JK gave me the ammunition I needed to get my furnaced replaced. Thank you so much, and I'll definitely look to you for my future needs!
Woke up and determined the heater was not working. Called Jerry Kelly and they had a technician at the house within two hours. Greg showed up and found the problem and had it fixed within a half hour. Great service and even better technicians. Highly recommend Jerry Kelly.
Ben and Dave were very professional. Willing and able to answer all questions.Five years after having one of our A/C units go out, our secondary heating system went out. Elliot was very helpful in explaining options to repair unit. Being that this system was 22 years old, we decided to replace. Again Elliott was helpful in explaining the different options available to us.
