What Your Home AC Tune-up Should Include

June 27, 2016

Summer has made its way to Charlotte and the last thing you need is your AC going out during the extreme temperatures. Help stop your home’s air conditioner from malfunctioning with a yearly A/C system tune-up from Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning.

What exactly is an air conditioning tune-up?

Simliar to how you go to your physician annually for an exam, an A/C system tune-up is a yearly visit to make sure your central AC is healthy and running properly. Most common air conditioning tune-ups will entail cleaning the condenser coils, calibrating the thermostat, evaluating your refrigerant levels and observing for leaks, inspecting and tightening all electrical parts, and analyzing the function of the blower belt and motor.
