What Your Home AC Tune-up Should Include

Summer has made its way to Wheeling and the last thing you need is your A/C system going out during the extreme heat. Help avoid your home’s air conditioner from breaking down with a yearly AC tune-up from Comfort Masters Service Experts.

What exactly is an air conditioning tune-up?

Similar to how you visit your physician every year for a check-up, an AC tune-up is a yearly visit to make sure your central air conditioning is healthy and in working order. Most typical air conditioning tune-ups will cover calibrating the thermostat, cleaning the condenser coils, inspecting your refrigerant levels and observing for leaks, inspecting and tightening all electrical components, and evaluating the operation of the blower belt and blower motor.
