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

Simliar to how you go to your general practitioner yearly for an evaluation, an A/C system tune-up is a yearly visit to make sure your central A/C system is healthy and in working order. Most typical A/C system tune-ups will entail cleaning the condenser coils, calibrating the thermostat, inspecting your refrigerant levels and checking for leaks, examining and tightening all electrical components, and assessing the function of the blower motor and belt.
