What Your Home AC Tune-up Should Include

June 27, 2016

Summer has made its debut in Concord and the last thing you need is your A/C system breaking down during the extreme heat. Help avoid your home’s AC from malfunctioning with a yearly A/C system tune-up from Freschi Service Experts.

What exactly is an air conditioning tune-up?

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