What Your Home AC Tune-up Should Include

June 27, 2016

Summer has made its way to Indianapolis and the last thing you need is your air conditioning system malfunctioning during the extreme weather. Help stop your home’s air conditioner from malfunctioning with an annual AC tune-up from Broad Ripple Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning.

What exactly is an air conditioning tune-up?

Simliar to how you go to your general practitioner annually for a check-up, an AC tune-up is a seasonal visit to make sure your central A/C system is healthy and running properly. Most general air conditioner tune-ups will include calibrating the thermostat, cleaning the condenser coils, evaluating your refrigerant levels and looking for leaks, inspecting and tightening all electrical components, and assessing the performance of the blower belt and blower motor.
