June 27, 2016

Summer has made its debut in Edmonton and the last thing you need is your air conditioning system going out during the extreme weather. Help avoid your home’s air conditioning system from breaking down with a yearly A/C system tune-up from Rob's Albertan Service Experts.

What exactly is an air conditioning tune-up?

Similar to how you visit your doctor annually for a check-up, an air conditioner tune-up is a seasonal visit to make sure your central A/C system is healthy and running properly. Most common air conditioner tune-ups will cover condenser coil cleaning, calibrating the thermostat, inspecting your refrigerant levels and checking for leaks, examining and tightening all electrical connections, and assessing the performance of the blower motor and blower belt.
