Charging the air conditioner of your vehicle may be needed every now and then. Your vehicle’s air conditioner helps to remove the heat and humidity from inside. It then provides you and your passengers with fresh, cool, and comfortable air in its place. The compressor of the system is powered by a belt and will compress the refrigerant to pressurize it. Then it will take the pressurized refrigerant and pump it through your vehicle’s system. If you start to notice any issues with how your vehicle is cooling, or if the air from the vents is not staying cool, contact us.

 

 

Regular maintenance

 

Remember to bring the vehicle in for regular maintenance. If you notice anything out of the norm, it is always best to have it inspected as soon as possible before the issue becomes worse. When there is an odd noise or odor, make sure that this is taken care of. If the air conditioner is operating with an issue, it is always best to have us look at it as soon as possible for you. This helps prevent any further issues from forming.

 

Check the Coolant as well

 

Also remember that the coolant for your vehicle should be inspected on a regular basis. This will help prevent the vehicle from overheating. If you are in slow traffic, you may start to notice that the engine is overheating. Either smoke could be coming from under the hood, or the temperature gauge is rising higher. It is important to remember to turn off the air conditioner of your vehicle. This will then help reduce the amount of strain that the engine has to go through. If it reaches the red, you will want to pull over when it is safe to do so. Turn the vehicle off as well. This will help prevent further damage to the engine as well.
