What Your Home AC Tune-up Should Include

June 27, 2016

Summer has officially arrived in Fort Lauderdale and the last thing you need is your air conditioning system failing during the extreme heat. Help prevent your home’s air conditioning system from malfunctioning with a yearly A/C system tune-up from Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning.

What exactly is an AC tune-up?

Simliar to how you go to your doctor annually for an evaluation, an AC tune-up is an annual visit to make sure your central air conditioning is healthy and operating correctly. Most common air conditioner tune-ups will entail cleaning the condenser coils, calibrating the thermostat, inspecting your refrigerant levels and checking for leaks, checking and tightening all electrical parts, and evaluating the function of the blower belt and motor.
