What Your Home AC Tune-up Should Include

Summer has made its debut in Calgary and the last thing you need is your A/C system breaking down during the extreme weather. Help prevent your home’s air conditioning system from failing with a seasonal AC tune-up from Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning.

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

Similiar to how you go to your general practitioner yearly for an evaluation, an air conditioner tune-up is a seasonal visit to make sure your central AC is healthy and running properly. Most common air conditioning tune-ups will include condenser coil cleaning, calibrating the thermostat, examining your refrigerant levels and looking for leaks, inspecting and tightening all electrical connections, and evaluating the function of the blower belt and motor.
