What Your Home AC Tune-up Should Include

June 27, 2016

Summer has officially arrived in Kansas City and the last thing you need is your AC malfunctioning during the extreme temperatures. Help stop your home’s air conditioning system from breaking down with a yearly A/C system tune-up from Neal Harris Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing.

What exactly is an AC tune-up?

Similar to how you visit your MD every year for a check-up, an A/C system tune-up is an annual visit to make sure your central AC is healthy and operating correctly. Most common air conditioner tune-ups will cover condenser coil cleaning, calibrating the thermostat, checking your refrigerant levels and checking for leaks, inspecting and tightening all electrical pieces, and assessing the performance of the blower belt and blower motor.
