June 27, 2016

Summer has made its way to Salt Lake City and the last thing you need is your air conditioner breaking down during the extreme heat. Help prevent your home’s air conditioner from breaking down with an annual air conditioning tune-up from Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning.

What exactly is an air conditioning tune-up?

Similiar to how you go to your physician every year for a check-up, an air conditioner tune-up is an annual visit to make sure your central AC is healthy and operating correctly. Most general A/C system tune-ups will include cleaning the condenser coils, calibrating the thermostat, examining your refrigerant levels and observing for leaks, examining and tightening all electrical parts, and evaluating the operation of the blower belt and motor.
