What Your Home AC Tune-up Should Include

June 27, 2016

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

What exactly is an AC tune-up?

Similar to how you visit your doctor yearly for an evaluation, an air conditioner tune-up is an annual visit to make sure your central AC is healthy and running properly. Most typical air conditioner tune-ups will entail cleaning the condenser coils, calibrating the thermostat, inspecting your refrigerant levels and looking for leaks, checking and tightening all electrical connections, and evaluating the operation of the blower motor and belt.
