What Your Home AC Tune-up Should Include

June 27, 2016

Summer has made its way to San Antonio and the last thing you need is your AC malfunctioning during the extreme heat. Help stop your home’s AC from failing with a yearly A/C system tune-up from San Antonio Air Service Experts.

What exactly is an air conditioning tune-up?

Just like you visit your doctor annually for a check-up, an A/C system tune-up is an annual visit to make sure your central air conditioning is healthy and operating correctly. Most common air conditioner tune-ups will entail condenser coil cleaning, calibrating the thermostat, evaluating your refrigerant levels and observing for leaks, inspecting and tightening all electrical parts, and evaluating the performance of the blower belt and blower motor.
