What Your Home AC Tune-up Should Include

June 27, 2016

Summer has officially arrived in San Antonio and the last thing you need is your air conditioner malfunctioning during the extreme heat. Help stop your home’s air conditioning system from malfunctioning with a yearly AC tune-up from Aramendia Plumbing, Heating and Air, A Service Experts Company.

What exactly is an air conditioning tune-up?

Similar to how you visit your doctor every year for an exam, an air conditioner tune-up is an annual visit to make sure your central AC is healthy and in working order. Most common AC tune-ups will entail condenser coil cleaning, calibrating the thermostat, examining your refrigerant levels and observing for leaks, inspecting and tightening all electrical connections, and assessing the operation of the blower belt and blower motor.
