June 27, 2016

Summer has made its debut in Knoxville and the last thing you need is your air conditioner malfunctioning during the extreme temperatures. Help prevent your home’s A/C system from breaking down with an annual air conditioning tune-up from R & M Climate Control Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning.

What exactly is an air conditioning tune-up?

Simliar to how you go to your general practitioner annually for an exam, an air conditioner tune-up is an annual visit to make sure your central AC is healthy and running properly. Most general AC tune-ups will cover cleaning the condenser coils, calibrating the thermostat, inspecting your refrigerant levels and looking for leaks, examining and tightening all electrical pieces, and evaluating the operation of the blower motor and blower belt.
