What's Included in a Tune-Up?
Most homeowners know that their HVAC unit needs to be serviced twice a year to run at peak performance. At Aire Serv of Coastal Carolina, we call those services "tune-ups". We recommend a fall tune-up, to get your HVAC system ready for the winter cold and we recommend a spring tune-up, which gets your HVAC unit ready to take on the summer heat.

A "tune-up" simply means a thorough inspection of your unit from one of our licensed heating and cooling professionals. At Aire Serv, an air conditioning tune-up includes the following:

Inspection Steps:

  • Calibrating thermostat
  • Inspect air filters
  • Check blower components
  • Gauge air flow
  • Check all electrical connections
  • Confirm proper system operation
  • Examine area around system
  • Check system clearances
  • Examine overall condition
  • Examine condenser and evaporator coils
  • Evaluate starting capabilities
  • Assess safety controls
  • Measure temperature contrast in supply and return
  • Observe refrigerant pressure
  • Examine condensate drains

Tune Up Steps:

  • Replace home owner supplied home air filters if requested
  • Tightening of electrical connections
  • Assess volts and amps
  • Clear condensate drain line
  • In-place cleaning of blower components
  • Assess cooling cycle
  • Clean condenser coil
  • Clean evaporator coil
