What Your Home AC Tune-up Should Include

Summer has made its debut in Saint Charles and the last thing you need is your air conditioning system breaking down during the extreme temperatures. Help avoid your home’s A/C system from breaking down with a seasonal AC tune-up from Golden Seal Service Experts.

What exactly is an air conditioning tune-up?

Similar to how you visit your MD annually for an evaluation, an AC tune-up is a yearly visit to make sure your central air conditioning is healthy and running properly. Most common air conditioner tune-ups will cover calibrating the thermostat, cleaning the condenser coils, checking your refrigerant levels and looking for leaks, examining and tightening all electrical pieces, and evaluating the operation of the blower motor and blower belt.
