What Your Home AC Tune-up Should Include

June 27, 2016

Summer has made its way to Ocala and the last thing you need is your air conditioner going out during the extreme temperatures. Help prevent your home’s AC from failing with a yearly air conditioning tune-up from Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning.

What exactly is an AC tune-up?

Just like you go to your general practitioner annually for a check-up, an air conditioner tune-up is a yearly visit to make sure your central A/C system is healthy and in working order. Most typical AC tune-ups will cover condenser coil cleaning, calibrating the thermostat, examining your refrigerant levels and observing for leaks, examining and tightening all electrical components, and assessing the performance of the blower motor and belt.
