Summer has made its debut in Fort Wayne and the last thing you need is your A/C system malfunctioning during the extreme temperatures. Help avoid your home’s A/C system from malfunctioning with an annual A/C system tune-up from Rolf Griffin Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning.

What exactly is an air conditioning tune-up?

Just like you go to your general practitioner every year for a check-up, an A/C system tune-up is a seasonal visit to make sure your central A/C system is healthy and operating correctly. Most general air conditioner tune-ups will entail condenser coil cleaning, calibrating the thermostat, evaluating your refrigerant levels and checking for leaks, examining and tightening all electrical parts, and analyzing the function of the blower motor and belt.
