Although it is important for a vehicle’s A/C system to be in prime condition all year long, it is obviously a more pressing matter as the weather warms up. The last thing you want is to get in your car and find that the air conditioning is no longer working properly. AC is crucial to ensuring that you get to your destination comfortably and without any stress or anxiety.
At Ethan’s Honest Automotive, we are proud of our service department and the work that we do. If you are worried about your air conditioning unit, come in and talk to us about what is going on. We’ll make sure your car stays in the best possible condition at all times.
When Should I Have My A/C Looked At?
There’s no specific timeline to follow here. If you get in your car and you feel good after turning on the air conditioning, you don’t need to bring your vehicle in for an inspection. However, if the AC just isn’t getting the car cold enough, or if you are almost at your destination before you finally start to cool off, you need to have the car looked at. We’ll figure out what is going on and have you back on the road, cool as can be, in no time at all.
Should I Be Worried That My A/C Is Blowing Warm Air?
Warm air is certainly a warning sign that things aren’t working exactly as they should with your air conditioning system. It’s hard to say exactly what might be wrong; for example, the problem could be a blown fuse, an air conditioning leak or an issue with the compressor clutch. Come into Ethan’s Honest Automotive and let us examine the issue more closely so we can help you.
How Do I Know When My A/C Needs To Be Recharged?
There are several warning signs that indicate that you need to give your A/C system a boost. The first is that the car stays warm even when the air conditioning is on. This is fairly easy to notice, and most people will realize right away when there is an issue. The next way to determine that there is a problem involves the A/C clutch. When your air conditioning is on at full blast, you can hear the clutch if you listen closely. If the clutch does not engage, the air conditioning won’t work. Finally, if the refrigerant is leaking, you need to take the car to a professional to have it evaluated. You’ll know that something is going on if you see refrigerant gathering under the car. At some point, the air conditioning system will stop working altogether.
It is important to take care of your vehicle if you want it to run well for a long time. The A/C system should be properly maintained and serviced when necessary. If you have any questions or concerns, talk to our licensed mechanics and see what they would recommend. We’re happy to help ensure that your car stays in good working order, so don’t hesitate to call us today!
