What Your Home AC Tune-up Should Include

June 27, 2016

Summer has made its way to West Palm Beach and the last thing you need is your AC breaking down during the extreme temperatures. Help stop your home’s air conditioner from malfunctioning with a seasonal air conditioning tune-up from Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning.

What exactly is an AC tune-up?

Just like you go to your doctor annually for an exam, an air conditioning tune-up is a yearly visit to make sure your central air conditioning is healthy and running properly. Most common air conditioning tune-ups will cover calibrating the thermostat, cleaning the condenser coils, inspecting your refrigerant levels and looking for leaks, checking and tightening all electrical pieces, and analyzing the function of the blower motor and belt.
