What Your Home AC Tune-up Should Include

June 27, 2016

Summer has made its way to Dayton and the last thing you need is your A/C system malfunctioning during the extreme weather. Help prevent your home’s air conditioning system from failing with a yearly air conditioning tune-up from Stevenson Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning.

What exactly is an air conditioning tune-up?

Just like you go to your doctor annually for an evaluation, an AC tune-up is a seasonal visit to make sure your central air conditioning is healthy and running properly. Most common air conditioning tune-ups will entail condenser coil cleaning, calibrating the thermostat, inspecting your refrigerant levels and looking for leaks, inspecting and tightening all electrical components, and analyzing the performance of the blower motor and belt.
