What Your Home AC Tune-up Should Include

June 27, 2016

Summer has made its debut in Saint Charles and the last thing you need is your air conditioning system breaking down during the extreme weather. Help prevent your home’s air conditioner from breaking down with an annual air conditioning tune-up from Golden Seal Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning.

What exactly is an air conditioning tune-up?

Similar to how you visit your MD annually for an evaluation, an A/C system tune-up is an annual visit to make sure your central air conditioning is healthy and in working order. Most common air conditioner tune-ups will cover cleaning the condenser coils, calibrating the thermostat, checking your refrigerant levels and looking for leaks, examining and tightening all electrical pieces, and assessing the operation of the blower motor and blower belt.
