What Your Home AC Tune-up Should Include

Summer has made its way to Austin and the last thing you need is your AC going out during the extreme weather. Help prevent your home’s air conditioner from failing with an annual air conditioning tune-up from Strand Brothers Service Experts.

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

Similiar to how you go to your physician annually for an exam, 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 cleaning the condenser coils, calibrating the thermostat, checking your refrigerant levels and looking for leaks, checking and tightening all electrical pieces, and evaluating the function of the blower belt and motor.
