What exactly is an air conditioning tune-up?

Most common AC tune-ups will include condenser coil cleaning, calibrating the thermostat, evaluating your refrigerant levels and looking for leaks, examining and tightening all electrical components, and evaluating the performance of the blower motor and belt.
