What Your Home AC Tune-up Should Include

June 27, 2016

Summer has officially arrived in Longmont and the last thing you need is your A/C system going out during the extreme weather. Help avoid your home’s air conditioner from malfunctioning with an annual A/C system tune-up from Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning.

What exactly is an air conditioning tune-up?

Just like you visit your MD yearly for an evaluation, an air conditioning tune-up is a yearly visit to make sure your central A/C system is healthy and in working order. Most common AC tune-ups will entail condenser coil cleaning, calibrating the thermostat, checking your refrigerant levels and looking for leaks, inspecting and tightening all electrical components, and analyzing the function of the blower motor and belt.
