What Your Home AC Tune-up Should Include

June 27, 2016

Summer has officially arrived in Richmond and the last thing you need is your A/C system malfunctioning during the extreme heat. Help prevent your home’s A/C system from malfunctioning with a yearly AC tune-up from Eveready Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning.

What exactly is an AC tune-up?

Just like you go to your physician annually for an exam, an AC tune-up is an annual visit to make sure your central AC is healthy and operating correctly. Most typical air conditioning tune-ups will include condenser coil cleaning, calibrating the thermostat, inspecting your refrigerant levels and looking for leaks, examining and tightening all electrical components, and assessing the operation of the blower belt and motor.
