What Your Home AC Tune-up Should Include

June 27, 2016

Summer has made its debut in North America and the last thing you need is your air conditioner failing during the extreme heat. Help stop your home’s AC from failing with a yearly AC tune-up from Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning.

What exactly is an air conditioning tune-up?

Similar to how you visit your general practitioner every year for a check-up, an air conditioner tune-up is an annual visit to make sure your central air conditioning is healthy and running properly. Most common A/C system tune-ups will entail condenser coil cleaning, calibrating the thermostat, evaluating your refrigerant levels and observing for leaks, examining and tightening all electrical parts, and analyzing the operation of the blower belt and motor.
