What Your Home AC Tune-up Should Include

June 27, 2016

Summer has officially arrived in Boise and the last thing you need is your A/C system breaking down during the extreme heat. Help prevent your home’s air conditioner from failing with an annual air conditioning tune-up from TML Service Experts.

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

Similar to how you visit your doctor yearly for an evaluation, an A/C system tune-up is a seasonal visit to make sure your central air conditioning is healthy and operating correctly. Most typical air conditioner tune-ups will cover calibrating the thermostat, cleaning the condenser coils, evaluating your refrigerant levels and observing for leaks, examining and tightening all electrical connections, and analyzing the performance of the blower motor and belt.
