What exactly is an air conditioning tune-up?

Similar to how you visit your MD every year for an evaluation, an AC tune-up is a seasonal visit to make sure your central air conditioning is healthy and running properly. Most general AC tune-ups will include cleaning the condenser coils, calibrating the thermostat, evaluating your refrigerant levels and looking for leaks, examining and tightening all electrical connections, and assessing the performance of the blower belt and blower motor.
