A/C Tune-Up Comprehensive Analysis

With the free A/C Tune-up comprehensive analysis, we will perform a thorough check of your refrigerated air conditioning unit to ensure it is working optimally. Here is what you can expect.

  • Measure and adjust indoor airflow
  • Inspect air filter(s) and clean or change if needed
  • Inspect and perform a light cleaning of  condenser coils, evaporator coils, and blower
  • Verify refrigerant level matches the manufacturer's specifications, using a digital refrigerant analyzer

During the tune-up, the technician may identify repairs that need attention to improve the performance and efficiency of your air conditioner. There may be additional costs associated with the recommended repairs.

The replacement filter must be provided by you, the customer. The technician may not clean the unit if cleaning would cause damage or if the unit is inaccessible - however, you will be advised if this is the case. Also, if the unit requires refrigerant to be added, the technician will provide you with an estimate for review and consideration.
