What Your Home AC Tune-up Should Include

Summer has officially arrived in Birmingham and the last thing you need is your A/C system malfunctioning during the extreme temperatures. Help avoid 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 general practitioner annually for an exam, an air conditioning tune-up is an annual visit to make sure your central A/C system is healthy and operating correctly. Most typical air conditioning tune-ups will include calibrating the thermostat, cleaning the condenser coils, inspecting your refrigerant levels and looking for leaks, inspecting and tightening all electrical parts, and analyzing the performance of the blower motor and belt.
