What Your Home AC Tune-up Should Include

June 27, 2016

Summer has officially arrived in Louisville and the last thing you need is your AC going out during the extreme temperatures. Help stop your home’s A/C system from malfunctioning with an annual AC tune-up from Becht/Givens Service Experts.

What exactly is an air conditioning tune-up?

Just like you visit your MD annually for an exam, an AC tune-up is an annual visit to make sure your central air conditioning is healthy and operating correctly. Most general air conditioner tune-ups will cover cleaning the condenser coils, calibrating the thermostat, examining your refrigerant levels and observing for leaks, checking and tightening all electrical parts, and analyzing the operation of the blower belt and motor.
