June 27, 2016

Summer has made its way to Atlanta and the last thing you need is your air conditioner failing during the extreme temperatures. Help prevent your home’s AC from failing with a yearly AC tune-up from Peachtree Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning.

What exactly is an AC tune-up?

Just like you go to your doctor yearly for a check-up, an A/C system tune-up is a yearly visit to make sure your central air conditioning is healthy and operating correctly. Most general air conditioner tune-ups will cover condenser coil cleaning, calibrating the thermostat, inspecting your refrigerant levels and looking for leaks, examining and tightening all electrical parts, and evaluating the function of the blower belt and blower motor.
