What Your Home AC Tune-up Should Include

June 27, 2016

Summer has officially arrived in London and the last thing you need is your air conditioner malfunctioning during the extreme weather. Help stop your home’s air conditioning system from malfunctioning with an annual AC tune-up from Roy Inch & Sons Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning.

What exactly is an AC tune-up?

Just like you go to your general practitioner yearly for an evaluation, an AC tune-up is an annual visit to make sure your central air conditioning is healthy and running properly. Most general AC tune-ups will cover cleaning the condenser coils, calibrating the thermostat, checking your refrigerant levels and checking for leaks, checking and tightening all electrical parts, and assessing the function of the blower motor and blower belt.
