Does J&R Herra Home Services offer emergency AC repairs?
Yes, we offer around-the-clock AC repair services, available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, every single day of the year. If you’re experiencing an AC emergency, contact us now to learn how we can help.
Do I really need to schedule AC maintenance?
Regular air conditioning system maintenance may seem unnecessary, but the fact is that routine inspections and service are vital for the efficiency, health, and performance of your AC system. Regular AC maintenance allows your HVAC technician to find minor issues and repair them before they become bigger problems. It also helps boost your system’s efficiency, meaning you’ll enjoy a cooler, more comfortable home and lower energy bills. Routine AC service can even increase the lifespan of your unit by addressing wear and tear, meaning your system will last longer and work better.
We recommend scheduling routine AC maintenance at least once a year, ideally in the spring before the hottest months of the year.
How often should I change the air filters in my AC system?
A clogged air filter leads to reduced cooling efficiency and a hotter, less comfortable home. To ensure maximum energy efficiency and cooling power, you should clean or replace your AC’s air filters every 30 to 90 days. The make, model, and age of your system will determine how often to replace the filters, but we recommend waiting no more than 45 days.
Why won’t my air conditioner turn on?There are many reasons why your AC won’t turn on. It could be an issue with the thermostat, a clogged air filter, or a mechanical issue. Check the thermostat to make sure it’s set to cool; you should also make sure the batteries are working. Locate the air filter and see whether it appears dirty. If so, it’s time to clean or replace it. Our team can come out to your home to diagnose the problem and complete fast, effective repairs. We’ll explain what’s wrong with your AC and inform you of your options before beginning any work.
A backed up toilet, a clogged sink drain, or a broken water heater can really put a damper on your day, but thankfully, our Elburn plumbers are just a quick phone call away. J&R Herra handles plumbing issues of all kinds, including leaky fixtures, broken pipes, malfunctioning sump pumps, damaged sewer lines, poor water pressure, and more.
Plumbing problems can potentially cause a lot of damage the longer they are unaddressed, so don't wait to call us if your faucet, sink, toilet, water lines, or any other component of your plumbing system needs professional attention. As with all of our services, we strive to provide clear, fair pricing for our plumbing repairs and installations.
