What exactly is an air conditioning tune-up?

Just like you visit your physician every year for an evaluation, an A/C system tune-up is a yearly visit to make sure your central AC is healthy and operating correctly. Most general air conditioner tune-ups will include condenser coil cleaning, calibrating the thermostat, examining your refrigerant levels and checking for leaks, examining and tightening all electrical components, and analyzing the performance of the blower motor and belt.
