What Your Home AC Tune-up Should Include

June 27, 2016

Summer has made its way to Clearwater and the last thing you need is your air conditioning system failing during the extreme weather. Help avoid your home’s A/C system from failing with an annual air conditioning tune-up from Midway Services.

What exactly is an air conditioning tune-up?

Just like you go to your MD yearly for an exam, an A/C system tune-up is a seasonal visit to make sure your central air conditioning is healthy and operating correctly. Most typical air conditioning tune-ups will cover condenser coil cleaning, calibrating the thermostat, evaluating your refrigerant levels and checking for leaks, inspecting and tightening all electrical connections, and assessing the operation of the blower motor and blower belt.
