What Your Home AC Tune-up Should Include

June 27, 2016

Summer has made its debut in West Chester and the last thing you need is your AC going out during the extreme weather. Help prevent your home’s A/C system from failing with a yearly air conditioning tune-up from Wesley Wood Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning.

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

Just like you visit your MD annually for an exam, an A/C system tune-up is a yearly visit to make sure your central AC is healthy and operating correctly. Most typical AC tune-ups will entail calibrating the thermostat, cleaning the condenser coils, checking your refrigerant levels and checking for leaks, checking and tightening all electrical components, and analyzing the operation of the blower motor and belt.
