What Your Home AC Tune-up Should Include

Summer has made its way to the Wasatch Front region and the last thing you need is your air conditioner malfunctioning during the extreme weather. Help avoid your home’s air conditioner from breaking down with a seasonal A/C system tune-up from Barlow Service Experts.

What exactly is an air conditioning tune-up?

Just like you go to your doctor every year for an exam, an air conditioning tune-up is a yearly visit to make sure your central air conditioning is healthy and operating correctly. Most general A/C system tune-ups will entail calibrating the thermostat, cleaning the condenser coils, checking your refrigerant levels and checking for leaks, inspecting and tightening all electrical components, and evaluating the operation of the blower belt and motor.
