Once air conditioners were the privilege of those who owned luxury cars, but over time they have become a necessity and now they can be found in most cars, even the cheapest ones.
In some cases it's a simple standalone feature, but in some others it can be a highly sophisticated system. Either way, proper car air conditioner maintenance is a must if you expect to stay cool in the summer, warm in the winter, and if you simply want to breathe clean air inside your car.
Also, don't forget that your air conditioner keeps you safe by defrosting and demisting your windows during the winter and it also helps to dehumidify your car cabin.
Car air conditioner maintenance is fairly simple, but it still should be left to professionals. Once you pay a visit to United Tires, your car will undergo a thorough inspection process.
Even though the whole system is fairly simple, a close inspection process looks a bit like what you’ve seen in popular investigation TV shows.
The internal controls and blower need to be checked for faults, as sometimes your AC may simply suffer from some minor electronic glitch that may be a simple fix. In some cases, the blower needs to be replaced.
Another important part of car AC inspection is to check the radiator coolant, thermostat, hoses, pressure radiator cap, and the operating temperature. If there's anything wrong with any of these, they need to be replaced.
The compressor and compressor belt are among the most expensive replacement parts, so they need to be checked for faults as well.
Next stop is refrigerant leakage inspection via a system pressure test. If your system leaks and it isn't properly pressurized, it needs to be fixed and the refrigerant needs to be refilled, along with re- pressurization in accordance to the manufacturer's specification.
If you experience strange smell coming from your air conditioner, the air you breathe in isn't healthy and your air cabin filter needs to be changed. This may also be associated with a moldy evaporator case.
These are always checked during maintenance and service. These parts are easy and fairly affordable to replace.
Also, be aware of the fact that leaking refrigerant isn't healthy for the atmosphere, so when you bring your car in for a car AC preventative maintenance, you're also protecting the environment.
Once all the car air conditioner maintenance processes are done, we at United Tires will check to see if the AC is working properly. This includes measuring interior temperatures and confirming that any previous refrigerant leaks have been fixed.
A properly functioning air conditioner shouldn't be making any strange noises, so that's covered by our inspection as well.
There are no predefined time intervals between two visits to a professional air conditioner service shop, as it may depend on the manufacturer, model, and year of your car.
It's always the best idea to check your owner's manual and follow the guidelines provided by the manufacturer.
If you're not sure, call or stop by United Tires today and one of our technicians will be glad to help. In most cases you should get a car AC inspection every two years.
