What Your Home AC Tune-up Should Include

June 27, 2016

Summer has made its debut in Fort Myers and the last thing you need is your air conditioner failing during the extreme heat. Help prevent your home’s air conditioner from failing with a yearly A/C system tune-up from Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning.

What exactly is an AC tune-up?

Just like you visit your MD every year for an exam, an A/C system tune-up is a yearly visit to make sure your central A/C system is healthy and running properly. Most common A/C system tune-ups will include condenser coil cleaning, calibrating the thermostat, inspecting your refrigerant levels and checking for leaks, inspecting and tightening all electrical components, and evaluating the performance of the blower belt and blower motor.
