What Your Home AC Tune-up Should Include

June 27, 2016

Summer has made its debut in Provo and the last thing you need is your air conditioner failing during the extreme temperatures. Help avoid your home’s AC from malfunctioning with an annual air conditioning tune-up from Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning.

What exactly is an AC tune-up?

Just like you visit your general practitioner yearly for a check-up, an A/C system tune-up is an annual visit to make sure your central air conditioning is healthy and running properly. Most general air conditioning tune-ups will cover condenser coil cleaning, calibrating the thermostat, examining your refrigerant levels and checking for leaks, inspecting and tightening all electrical components, and assessing the operation of the blower motor and belt.
