What Your Home AC Tune-up Should Include

June 27, 2016

Summer has officially arrived in Kingston and the last thing you need is your air conditioner failing during the extreme weather. Help avoid your home’s AC from breaking down with a yearly AC tune-up from Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning.

What exactly is an AC tune-up?

Just like you go to your general practitioner 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 general A/C system tune-ups will entail condenser coil cleaning, calibrating the thermostat, evaluating your refrigerant levels and observing for leaks, examining and tightening all electrical parts, and analyzing the performance of the blower motor and belt.
