What Your Home AC Tune-up Should Include

June 27, 2016

Summer has officially arrived in Niagara Falls and the last thing you need is your A/C system malfunctioning during the extreme heat. Help stop your home’s air conditioner from failing with a seasonal AC tune-up from Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning.

What exactly is an air conditioning tune-up?

Just like you visit your physician every year for a check-up, an AC tune-up is a yearly visit to make sure your central air conditioning is healthy and in working order. Most typical AC tune-ups will entail condenser coil cleaning, calibrating the thermostat, inspecting your refrigerant levels and looking for leaks, inspecting and tightening all electrical pieces, and assessing the performance of the blower motor and belt.
