What Your Home AC Tune-up Should Include

June 27, 2016

Summer has made its way to Shreveport and the last thing you need is your air conditioner breaking down during the extreme weather. Help avoid your home’s AC from breaking down with a seasonal air conditioning tune-up from Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning.

What exactly is an AC tune-up?

Just like you go to your physician annually for a check-up, an air conditioner tune-up is a seasonal visit to make sure your central AC is healthy and in working order. Most common air conditioner tune-ups will include calibrating the thermostat, cleaning the condenser coils, examining your refrigerant levels and checking for leaks, checking and tightening all electrical pieces, and analyzing the operation of the blower belt and motor.
