What Your Home AC Tune-up Should Include

Summer has officially arrived in Indianapolis and the last thing you need is your air conditioning system malfunctioning during the extreme temperatures. Help stop your home’s air conditioner from malfunctioning with an annual air conditioning tune-up from Broad Ripple Service Experts.

What exactly is an air conditioning tune-up?

Similar to how you visit your physician every year for a check-up, an A/C system 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 cleaning the condenser coils, calibrating the thermostat, evaluating your refrigerant levels and looking for leaks, checking and tightening all electrical components, and evaluating the performance of the blower belt and motor.
