What Your Home AC Tune-up Should Include

June 27, 2016

Summer has officially arrived in Memphis and the last thing you need is your air conditioner malfunctioning during the extreme weather. Help stop your home’s air conditioning system from failing with a yearly AC tune-up from Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning.

What exactly is an AC tune-up?

Similar to how you visit your MD every year for an exam, an AC tune-up is a seasonal visit to make sure your central AC is healthy and running properly. Most common air conditioner tune-ups will entail condenser coil cleaning, calibrating the thermostat, checking your refrigerant levels and observing for leaks, checking and tightening all electrical connections, and analyzing the performance of the blower belt and blower motor.
