What exactly is an A/C system tune-up?

Just like you visit your doctor yearly for a check-up, an air conditioning tune-up is a seasonal visit to make sure your central A/C system is healthy and running properly. Most general air conditioner tune-ups will cover condenser coil cleaning, calibrating the thermostat, checking your refrigerant levels and looking for leaks, examining and tightening all electrical pieces, and assessing the performance of the blower motor and blower belt.
