June 27, 2016

Summer has made its way to Savannah and the last thing you need is your air conditioner going out during the extreme heat. Help prevent your home’s air conditioning system from malfunctioning with a seasonal air conditioning tune-up from Coastal Service Experts.

What exactly is an air conditioning tune-up?

Similiar to how you go to your doctor every year for an exam, an AC tune-up is an annual visit to make sure your central A/C system is healthy and operating correctly. Most general A/C system tune-ups will entail cleaning the condenser coils, calibrating the thermostat, inspecting your refrigerant levels and checking for leaks, examining and tightening all electrical connections, and evaluating the function of the blower motor and blower belt.
