What Your Home AC Tune-up Should Include

June 27, 2016

Summer has made its way to Mint Hill and the last thing you need is your AC going out during the extreme temperatures. Help prevent your home’s air conditioner from malfunctioning with a yearly AC tune-up from Komfort Air.

What exactly is an air conditioning tune-up?

Just like you visit your physician yearly for an exam, an air conditioning tune-up is a yearly visit to make sure your central air conditioning is healthy and operating correctly. Most common air conditioner tune-ups will cover calibrating the thermostat, cleaning the condenser coils, evaluating your refrigerant levels and looking for leaks, inspecting and tightening all electrical connections, and evaluating the function of the blower motor and blower belt.
