What Your Home AC Tune-up Should Include

June 27, 2016

Summer has made its debut in Canada and the last thing you need is your air conditioner failing during the extreme temperatures. Help prevent your home’s A/C system from malfunctioning with an annual AC tune-up from Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning.

What exactly is an AC tune-up?

Similiar to how you go to your MD annually for a check-up, an A/C system tune-up is a seasonal visit to make sure your central A/C system is healthy and operating correctly. Most common AC tune-ups will cover condenser coil cleaning, calibrating the thermostat, examining your refrigerant levels and observing for leaks, checking and tightening all electrical parts, and evaluating the performance of the blower belt and blower motor.
