What Your Home AC Tune-up Should Include

June 27, 2016

Summer has made its debut in Gaithersburg and the last thing you need is your air conditioner failing during the extreme temperatures. Help prevent your home’s AC from malfunctioning with a seasonal A/C system tune-up from Parker Pearce Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning.

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

Simliar to how you go to your general practitioner yearly for an evaluation, an AC tune-up is an annual visit to make sure your central air conditioning is healthy and running properly. Most general AC tune-ups will cover cleaning the condenser coils, calibrating the thermostat, inspecting your refrigerant levels and checking for leaks, inspecting and tightening all electrical components, and analyzing the operation of the blower belt and motor.
