What Your Home AC Tune-up Should Include

June 27, 2016

Summer has officially arrived in Miami and the last thing you need is your A/C system breaking down during the extreme heat. Help avoid your home’s AC from malfunctioning with a seasonal air conditioning tune-up from Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning.

What exactly is an air conditioning tune-up?

Simliar to how you go to your MD every year for an evaluation, an air conditioner tune-up is an annual visit to make sure your central air conditioning is healthy and running properly. Most common A/C system tune-ups will cover cleaning the condenser coils, calibrating the thermostat, inspecting your refrigerant levels and observing for leaks, inspecting and tightening all electrical components, and analyzing the performance of the blower motor and blower belt.
