What Your Home AC Tune-up Should Include

June 27, 2016

Summer has officially arrived in Hillsborough and the last thing you need is your A/C system breaking down during the extreme temperatures. Help stop your home’s A/C system from malfunctioning with a seasonal AC tune-up from Fras-Air/General Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning.

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

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