What Your Home AC Tune-up Should Include

June 27, 2016

Summer has made its debut in Dublin and the last thing you need is your AC malfunctioning during the extreme weather. Help prevent your home’s A/C system from malfunctioning with a yearly air conditioning tune-up from Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning.

What exactly is an air conditioning tune-up?

Simliar to how you go to your general practitioner every year for a check-up, an air conditioner tune-up is an annual visit to make sure your central AC is healthy and in working order. Most general AC tune-ups will include cleaning the condenser coils, calibrating the thermostat, examining your refrigerant levels and checking for leaks, examining and tightening all electrical components, and evaluating the function of the blower motor and belt.
