What Your Home AC Tune-up Should Include

Summer has made its debut in Gaithersburg and the last thing you need is your air conditioner failing during the extreme weather. Help avoid your home’s AC from failing with an annual A/C system tune-up from Parker Pearce Service Experts.

What exactly is an AC tune-up?

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