What Your Home AC Tune-up Should Include

June 27, 2016

Summer has officially arrived in Houston and the last thing you need is your A/C system breaking down during the extreme weather. Help prevent your home’s AC from malfunctioning with an annual air conditioning tune-up from Church Services.

What exactly is an air conditioning tune-up?

Similar to how you visit your MD every year for an evaluation, an air conditioning tune-up is a yearly visit to make sure your central AC is healthy and in working order. Most common AC tune-ups will cover condenser coil cleaning, calibrating the thermostat, inspecting your refrigerant levels and observing for leaks, examining and tightening all electrical pieces, and assessing the performance of the blower belt and blower motor.
