What Your Home AC Tune-up Should Include

June 27, 2016

Summer has made its way to Kitchener and the last thing you need is your A/C system malfunctioning during the extreme temperatures. Help avoid your home’s air conditioner from breaking down with a seasonal air conditioning tune-up from Boehmers/Cronin Emery Service Experts.

What exactly is an A/C system tune-up?

Similiar to how you go to your doctor yearly for an exam, an air conditioning tune-up is an annual visit to make sure your central air conditioning is healthy and running properly. Most common air conditioning tune-ups will entail calibrating the thermostat, cleaning the condenser coils, examining your refrigerant levels and checking for leaks, inspecting and tightening all electrical pieces, and evaluating the operation of the blower motor and belt.
