What Your Home AC Tune-up Should Include

June 27, 2016

Summer has officially arrived in Raleigh and the last thing you need is your A/C system malfunctioning during the extreme heat. Help avoid your home’s A/C system from failing with a yearly A/C system tune-up from 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 a yearly visit to make sure your central A/C system is healthy and operating correctly. Most common AC tune-ups will include cleaning the condenser coils, calibrating the thermostat, evaluating your refrigerant levels and looking for leaks, examining and tightening all electrical components, and analyzing the operation of the blower motor and belt.
