What Your Home AC Tune-up Should Include

Summer has officially arrived in Grand Island and the last thing you need is your A/C system failing during the extreme temperatures. Help prevent your home’s AC from malfunctioning with a yearly air conditioning tune-up from McElroy Service Experts.

What exactly is an AC tune-up?

Similar to how you visit your MD yearly for an exam, an air conditioning tune-up is a seasonal visit to make sure your central air conditioning is healthy and in working order. Most general air conditioning tune-ups will entail cleaning the condenser coils, calibrating the thermostat, examining your refrigerant levels and observing for leaks, examining and tightening all electrical connections, and assessing the performance of the blower motor and blower belt.
