What exactly is an AC tune-up?

Just like you visit your physician annually for an exam, an A/C system tune-up is an annual visit to make sure your central A/C system is healthy and in working order. Most typical A/C system tune-ups will entail calibrating the thermostat, cleaning the condenser coils, checking your refrigerant levels and looking for leaks, examining and tightening all electrical pieces, and analyzing the operation of the blower belt and motor.
