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 avoid your home’s AC from failing with a seasonal AC tune-up from A1 Chesney Service Experts.

What exactly is an air conditioning tune-up?

Just like you go to your physician every year 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 typical 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 parts, and analyzing the operation of the blower motor and blower belt.
