What Your Home AC Tune-up Should Include

June 27, 2016

Summer has made its way to Oklahoma City and the last thing you need is your air conditioner breaking down during the extreme temperatures. Help prevent your home’s air conditioner from malfunctioning with a yearly AC tune-up from Gordon's Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning.

What exactly is an air conditioning tune-up?

Just like you visit your MD every year for an exam, an air conditioning tune-up is an annual visit to make sure your central A/C system is healthy and running properly. Most general air conditioner tune-ups will entail condenser coil cleaning, calibrating the thermostat, checking your refrigerant levels and looking for leaks, checking and tightening all electrical components, and assessing the operation of the blower motor and blower belt.
