What Your Home AC Tune-up Should Include

June 27, 2016

Summer has officially arrived in Mobile and the last thing you need is your air conditioning system breaking down during the extreme weather. Help stop your home’s air conditioning system from malfunctioning with a seasonal air conditioning tune-up from Climate Control Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning.

What exactly is an air conditioning tune-up?

Similiar to how you go to your doctor annually for an evaluation, an air conditioning tune-up is an annual visit to make sure your central AC is healthy and running properly. Most typical AC tune-ups will cover cleaning the condenser coils, calibrating the thermostat, inspecting your refrigerant levels and checking for leaks, inspecting and tightening all electrical components, and analyzing the function of the blower motor and blower belt.
