What exactly is an A/C system tune-up?

Just like you visit your MD yearly for an exam, an air conditioning tune-up is an annual visit to make sure your central air conditioning is healthy and running properly. Most typical air conditioner tune-ups will entail cleaning the condenser coils, calibrating the thermostat, inspecting your refrigerant levels and checking for leaks, examining and tightening all electrical pieces, and assessing the performance of the blower motor and belt.
