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 prevent 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 an annual visit to make sure your central AC is healthy and operating correctly. Most general air conditioner tune-ups will include calibrating the thermostat, cleaning the condenser coils, checking your refrigerant levels and looking for leaks, examining and tightening all electrical components, and assessing the performance of the blower belt and motor.
