What Your Home AC Tune-up Should Include

Summer has made its debut in Calgary and the last thing you need is your AC going out during the extreme heat. Help prevent your home’s AC from malfunctioning with an annual AC tune-up from A1 Chesney Service Experts.

What exactly is an air conditioning tune-up?

Just like you go to your general practitioner annually for an exam, an air conditioner tune-up is a seasonal visit to make sure your central air conditioning is healthy and in working order. Most common air conditioner tune-ups will include condenser coil cleaning, calibrating the thermostat, checking your refrigerant levels and checking for leaks, examining and tightening all electrical components, and analyzing the operation of the blower motor and blower belt.
