What Your Home AC Tune-up Should Include

June 27, 2016

Summer has made its way to Orlando and the last thing you need is your air conditioning system failing during the extreme temperatures. Help stop your home’s air conditioner from failing with a yearly air conditioning tune-up from Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning.

What exactly is an air conditioning tune-up?

Similiar to how you go to your physician every year 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 typical A/C system tune-ups will include condenser coil cleaning, calibrating the thermostat, inspecting your refrigerant levels and checking for leaks, checking and tightening all electrical pieces, and evaluating the performance of the blower belt and motor.
