What Your Home AC Tune-up Should Include

June 27, 2016

Summer has made its way to Toronto and the last thing you need is your air conditioning system failing during the extreme temperatures. Help prevent your home’s A/C system from breaking down with a seasonal AC tune-up from Service Experts Commercial HVAC.

What exactly is an AC tune-up?

Similar to how you visit your physician yearly for a check-up, an air conditioning tune-up is a seasonal visit to make sure your central A/C system is healthy and in working order. Most general air conditioner tune-ups will cover cleaning the condenser coils, calibrating the thermostat, checking your refrigerant levels and observing for leaks, checking and tightening all electrical components, and evaluating the performance of the blower motor and belt.
