What Your Home AC Tune-up Should Include

June 27, 2016

Summer has officially arrived in Wheeling and the last thing you need is your A/C system going out during the extreme heat. Help prevent your home’s A/C system from breaking down with a yearly air conditioning tune-up from Comfort Masters Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning.

What exactly is an air conditioning tune-up?

Simliar to how you go to your general practitioner annually for a check-up, an AC tune-up is an annual visit to make sure your central air conditioning is healthy and running properly. Most typical air conditioning tune-ups will cover calibrating the thermostat, cleaning the condenser coils, evaluating your refrigerant levels and observing for leaks, inspecting and tightening all electrical parts, and assessing the operation of the blower belt and motor.
