Ensured Peak Performance
Are you suddenly hearing a funny noise when you switch on the air conditioner, and it’s just not blowing as cold as it used to, no matter how low you set the temperature? It is time to get your car’s air conditioner serviced. To ensure the peak performance of your vehicle, its A/C system also needs to perform optimally.
Do you know that slight pull you feel when starting your car while the air conditioning is on? That is the A/C drawing power from your car’s engine. And when the maintenance schedule is delayed, it further strains the vehicle’s engine. With the computerization of today’s cars, it is best to use the services of professionals like Special Interest Automobiles to perform the specialized maintenance an A/C requires.
The Air Quality In Your Car is Kept Fresh
Cars have a heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system, just like your house and office building. Regular maintenance is required to keep the air quality in your car fresh, including replacing the cabin air filter. Air filters prevent pollen, bacteria, exhaust gasses, dust, and other debris from entering the air conditioning system. Do you have allergy sufferers in your family? Consider taking the vehicle for an A/C service more often.
How can you contribute to keeping the air quality in your car fresh and cutting the strain on the air conditioner? Wipe the dashboard, console, door panels and other surfaces with a damp cloth. Vacuum mats, the carpeted floor, and upholstery regularly, and clean spills up immediately to prevent mould growth. Check that the door and window weather-stripping seal properly. Specialist Interest Automobiles offers detailing services if you don’t have time to clean the vehicle.
Your Car’s Value Can Be Stabilized
Energy costs, including gas prices, are consistently increasing. Maintaining a vehicle’s fuel economy requires regular auto services, including A/C and heating repairs. Because the air conditioner draws power from a car’s engine, it causes strain. When the components of an HVAC system, whether the cabin air filter, condenser, compressor, evaporator, expansion valve, or dryer, is not in a good condition, the engine works extra hard. This affects other parts of the engine, wearing them down unnecessarily. Performing preventative maintenance on the A/C systems limits future costly repairs, decreases the car’s energy consumption, and stabilizes its value.
How Often Should You Do It?
Are you wondering how often you should have your vehicle’s air conditioner serviced? Annual maintenance is recommended, but if family members have allergies, attend to it more regularly. What will the comprehensive A/C evaluation offered by Specialist Interest Automobiles include, although not the complete list?
- Internal controls examination
- Compressor belt inspection
- A system, leaks, or other damages inspection
- Cooling system pressure test
- Measuring vent air temperature
- Ensuring the A/C pressure aligns with manufacturer specifications.
Don’t wait until there is a bad smell when switching on the A/C or it does not work. Have regular maintenance performed on your car, including the HVAC system, and you will get value from your vehicle for many years.
