What Your Home AC Tune-up Should Include

June 27, 2016

Summer has officially arrived in Haltom City and the last thing you need is your air conditioning system failing during the extreme temperatures. Help stop your home’s air conditioning system from failing with an annual A/C system tune-up from Stark Services.

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

Simliar to how you go to your general practitioner yearly for an evaluation, an A/C system tune-up is a seasonal visit to make sure your central A/C system is healthy and running properly. Most typical air conditioning tune-ups will include calibrating the thermostat, cleaning the condenser coils, checking your refrigerant levels and observing for leaks, checking and tightening all electrical components, and evaluating the operation of the blower motor and blower belt.
