What Your Home AC Tune-up Should Include

Summer has made its way to the Niagara Region 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 an annual AC tune-up from Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning.

What exactly is an air conditioning tune-up?

Just like you visit your physician annually for an exam, an A/C system tune-up is a yearly visit to make sure your central air conditioning is healthy and running properly. Most common AC tune-ups will include condenser coil cleaning, calibrating the thermostat, inspecting your refrigerant levels and checking for leaks, checking and tightening all electrical pieces, and evaluating the performance of the blower motor and belt.
