What Your Home AC Tune-up Should Include

June 27, 2016

Summer has made its debut in Charleston and the last thing you need is your air conditioning system breaking down during the extreme temperatures. Help stop your home’s air conditioner from failing with an annual A/C system tune-up from Pardee Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning.

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

Just like you visit your MD annually for an exam, an A/C system tune-up is a yearly visit to make sure your central AC is healthy and operating correctly. Most common air conditioning tune-ups will include condenser coil cleaning, calibrating the thermostat, evaluating your refrigerant levels and checking for leaks, inspecting and tightening all electrical components, and assessing the performance of the blower motor and blower belt.
