What exactly is an air conditioning tune-up?

Similiar 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.
