What Your Home AC Tune-up Should Include

Summer has made its debut in Pierre and the last thing you need is your air conditioner going out during the extreme weather. Help prevent 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 an annual 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 checking for leaks, examining and tightening all electrical parts, and evaluating the function of the blower belt and motor.
