What Your Home AC Tune-up Should Include

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

What exactly is an air conditioning tune-up?

Just like you visit your MD annually for a check-up, an A/C system 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 calibrating the thermostat, cleaning the condenser coils, examining your refrigerant levels and observing for leaks, inspecting and tightening all electrical components, and analyzing the operation of the blower belt and motor.
