What Your Home AC Tune-up Should Include

June 27, 2016

Summer has made its way to Windsor and the last thing you need is your A/C system failing during the extreme heat. Help prevent your home’s A/C system from failing with a seasonal A/C system tune-up from Bryant Heating & Cooling Service Experts.

What exactly is an A/C system tune-up?

Simliar to how you go to your MD annually for an exam, an air conditioning tune-up is a yearly visit to make sure your central AC is healthy and running properly. Most common air conditioner tune-ups will include condenser coil cleaning, calibrating the thermostat, inspecting your refrigerant levels and checking for leaks, inspecting and tightening all electrical connections, and analyzing the function of the blower motor and belt.
