What Your Home AC Tune-up Should Include

Summer has made its debut in Champaign and the last thing you need is your A/C system malfunctioning during the extreme temperatures. Help stop your home’s air conditioning system from failing with a yearly A/C system tune-up from Chief/Bauer Service Experts.

What exactly is an air conditioning tune-up?

Just like you go to your physician yearly for an exam, an A/C system tune-up is an annual visit to make sure your central air conditioning is healthy and operating correctly. Most common air conditioner tune-ups will include condenser coil cleaning, calibrating the thermostat, checking your refrigerant levels and checking for leaks, checking and tightening all electrical pieces, and analyzing the operation of the blower belt and motor.
