June 27, 2016

Summer has made its debut in Austin and the last thing you need is your air conditioner breaking down during the extreme heat. Help stop your home’s A/C system from malfunctioning with a seasonal AC tune-up from Strand Brothers Service Experts.

What exactly is an AC tune-up?

Just like you visit your general practitioner annually for an exam, an air conditioning tune-up is an annual visit to make sure your central air conditioning is healthy and in working order. Most common AC tune-ups will entail calibrating the thermostat, cleaning the condenser coils, checking your refrigerant levels and observing for leaks, examining and tightening all electrical connections, and analyzing the function of the blower motor and belt.
