What Your Home AC Tune-up Should Include

Summer has made its debut in Albany and the last thing you need is your A/C system failing during the extreme heat. Help avoid your home’s air conditioner from breaking down with a seasonal A/C system tune-up from D.A. Bennett Service Experts.

What exactly is an AC tune-up?

Similar to how you visit your doctor annually for an exam, an air conditioning tune-up is a yearly visit to make sure your central A/C system is healthy and operating correctly. Most general air conditioner tune-ups will include cleaning the condenser coils, calibrating the thermostat, checking your refrigerant levels and checking for leaks, examining and tightening all electrical components, and evaluating the function of the blower belt and motor.
