What Your Home AC Tune-up Should Include

June 27, 2016

Summer has made its way to Birmingham and the last thing you need is your A/C system malfunctioning during the extreme temperatures. Help prevent your home’s AC from breaking down with a yearly AC tune-up from Norrell Service Experts.

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

Just like you visit your physician every year for a check-up, an air conditioning tune-up is an annual visit to make sure your central A/C system is healthy and operating correctly. Most common air conditioning tune-ups will entail cleaning the condenser coils, calibrating the thermostat, inspecting your refrigerant levels and looking for leaks, inspecting and tightening all electrical components, and analyzing the function of the blower motor and belt.
