What exactly is an air conditioning tune-up?

Just like you go to your MD annually for an evaluation, an air conditioner tune-up is a yearly visit to make sure your central AC is healthy and running properly. Most typical AC tune-ups will entail condenser coil cleaning, calibrating the thermostat, evaluating your refrigerant levels and checking for leaks, examining and tightening all electrical components, and evaluating the function of the blower motor and belt.
