What exactly is an air conditioning tune-up?

Simliar to how you go to your doctor yearly for a check-up, an air conditioner tune-up is an annual visit to make sure your central A/C system is healthy and operating correctly. Most common A/C system tune-ups will cover cleaning the condenser coils, calibrating the thermostat, evaluating your refrigerant levels and observing for leaks, examining and tightening all electrical parts, and assessing the operation of the blower motor and blower belt.
