What Your Home AC Tune-up Should Include

June 27, 2016

Summer has made its way to Sharonville 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 failing with a yearly AC tune-up from Knochelmann Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning.

What exactly is an AC tune-up?

Just like you visit your general practitioner yearly for a check-up, an AC tune-up is a yearly visit to make sure your central air conditioning is healthy and running properly. Most typical A/C system tune-ups will cover calibrating the thermostat, cleaning the condenser coils, examining your refrigerant levels and looking for leaks, checking and tightening all electrical parts, and assessing the function of the blower belt and blower motor.
