American Home Shield HVAC Tune-up

Air Conditioning Tune-up

Warm weather is just around the corner, which makes now the best time to ensure your A/C systems are working properly. Between March 1st through May 31st, select American Home Shield® approved service contractors are offering a Pre-season A/C System Tune-up for one unit for $75.* Should a covered issue be found that requires fixing, you’ll simply be charged your Trade Service Call Fee, subject to limitations and exclusions under your American Home Shield Agreement.

Although not part of the Agreement coverage for your A/C system, this thorough tune-up will be performed by a qualified technician who will:
  • Calibrate the thermostat
  • Test the temperature split
  • Check refrigerant levels and system pressures
  • Perform amp draw on condenser motor
  • Check the evaporator motor and compressor
  • Rinse the condenser coils
  • Check the condensate lines
  • Clean or replace filters (owner supplied)
  • Tighten and clean the electrical connections
  • Inspect the contactors
  • Test capacitors and check A/C operations
  • Test safety switches and limit switches

PLEASE NOTE, the Agreement holder is responsible for any cost associated with any problems not covered under their home warranty agreement. In addition, the following are not covered as part of the tune-up:
  • Filters
  • Clearing of condensate line stoppages
  • Recharging of refrigerant
  • Evaporator/indoor coil cleaning, including acid cleaning
  • Cleaning or unclogging services required to correct problems related to the lack of manufacturer recommended maintenance (filters must be replaced monthly)
  • Geothermal systems, ductless mini-split systems, boilers, and oil furnaces
  • Rooftop units
All other American Home Shield Agreement limitations and exclusions apply.

Request Service

*For the cost of $75 (plus any applicable sales tax), an American Home Shield-approved service contractor will perform a Pre-season A/C System Tune-up on one unit during the months of March through May. Service dates are limited and may vary based upon location and technician availability. The fee for tune-ups must be paid at the time of service request. If a service request involves multiple units, a separate fee is due for each unit receiving the tune-up. If the contractor finds a covered problem, a Trade Service Call Fee will be due at the time the repair is made. The Agreement holder is responsible for any cost associated with any problems not subject to coverage under the American Home Shield Agreement. Heating systems are not eligible for the tune-up during the spring season. Units must be located on or near the ground to be eligible for the tune-up.
