What Your Home AC Tune-up Should Include

Summer has made its debut in Hilton Head Island and the last thing you need is your A/C system going out during the extreme weather. Help avoid your home’s air conditioning system from malfunctioning with an annual A/C system tune-up from Epperson Service Experts.

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

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