What Your Home AC Tune-up Should Include

June 27, 2016

Summer has made its debut in Hilton Head Island and the last thing you need is your A/C system failing during the extreme temperatures. Help avoid your home’s air conditioning system from malfunctioning with a seasonal A/C system tune-up from Epperson Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning.

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

Just like you go to your MD annually for a check-up, an A/C system tune-up is a seasonal visit to make sure your central air conditioning is healthy and in working order. Most general air conditioner tune-ups will include cleaning the condenser coils, calibrating the thermostat, evaluating your refrigerant levels and looking for leaks, inspecting and tightening all electrical components, and assessing the performance of the blower belt and blower motor.
