What Your Home AC Tune-up Should Include

June 27, 2016

Summer has officially arrived in Waldorf and the last thing you need is your air conditioning system going out during the extreme weather. Help prevent your home’s air conditioning system from failing with a yearly AC tune-up from A-PLUS Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning.

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

Simliar to how you go to your physician annually for a check-up, an AC tune-up is a seasonal visit to make sure your central AC is healthy and running properly. Most typical AC tune-ups will entail cleaning the condenser coils, calibrating the thermostat, checking your refrigerant levels and observing for leaks, inspecting and tightening all electrical pieces, and evaluating the operation of the blower belt and blower motor.
