What Your Home AC Tune-up Should Include

June 27, 2016

Summer has made its debut in Salt Lake City and the last thing you need is your AC failing during the extreme temperatures. Help prevent your home’s air conditioning system from breaking down with a yearly air conditioning tune-up from Mountainwest Service Experts.

What exactly is an AC tune-up?

Just like you visit your MD yearly for an evaluation, an air conditioner tune-up is a yearly visit to make sure your central A/C system is healthy and running properly. Most common air conditioning tune-ups will include calibrating the thermostat, cleaning the condenser coils, inspecting your refrigerant levels and observing for leaks, inspecting and tightening all electrical pieces, and evaluating the operation of the blower belt and motor.
