What Your Home AC Tune-up Should Include

June 27, 2016

Summer has officially arrived in Roanoke and the last thing you need is your A/C system going out during the extreme weather. Help stop your home’s AC from breaking down with a seasonal AC tune-up from Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning.

What exactly is an air conditioning tune-up?

Just like you visit your physician annually for an evaluation, an AC tune-up is a yearly visit to make sure your central A/C system is healthy and in working order. Most general air conditioner tune-ups will include calibrating the thermostat, cleaning the condenser coils, inspecting your refrigerant levels and observing for leaks, inspecting and tightening all electrical components, and assessing the performance of the blower motor and belt.
