What Your Home AC Tune-up Should Include

Summer has made its debut in Pierre and the last thing you need is your AC going out during the extreme temperatures. Help avoid your home’s AC from malfunctioning with a yearly air conditioning tune-up from Peitz Service Experts.

What exactly is an AC tune-up?

Just like you go to your general practitioner yearly for an exam, an air conditioner tune-up is a yearly visit to make sure your central air conditioning 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, examining and tightening all electrical components, and assessing the performance of the blower belt and motor.
