What Your Home AC Tune-up Should Include

June 27, 2016

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

What exactly is an AC tune-up?

Similiar to how you go to your doctor yearly for an exam, an air conditioner tune-up is an annual visit to make sure your central air conditioning is healthy and running properly. Most common air conditioning tune-ups will include cleaning the condenser coils, calibrating the thermostat, evaluating your refrigerant levels and looking for leaks, checking and tightening all electrical connections, and analyzing the operation of the blower motor and blower belt.
