What Your Home AC Tune-up Should Include

Summer has officially arrived in Austin and the last thing you need is your AC failing during the extreme temperatures. Help prevent your home’s air conditioner from malfunctioning with an annual air conditioning tune-up from Strand Brothers Service Experts.

What exactly is an AC tune-up?

Similiar to how you go to your physician yearly for a check-up, an AC tune-up is an annual visit to make sure your central AC is healthy and operating correctly. Most general AC tune-ups will include calibrating the thermostat, cleaning the condenser coils, checking your refrigerant levels and looking for leaks, inspecting and tightening all electrical pieces, and evaluating the performance of the blower belt and motor.
