Arizona heat can be intense, so having a fully-functional air conditioning system in your car is the only way to drive. While the A/C system keeps the cabin cool, the engine cooling system maintains balance in the engine, and though these systems are separate, they affect each other. For example, if the engine cooling system malfunctions, the air-conditioner could fail as a result. For this reason, maintaining both systems is key to keeping all areas of the vehicle properly climate controlled.
First and foremost, keeping the air conditioner working means ensuring its refrigerant stays full. If anything leaks, allowing the refrigerant to escape, the system won’t effectively cool the air. The air conditioner also uses special lubricating oil to keep components cool and reduce friction. If either of these vital fluids gets too low, system parts will wear prematurely, leading to possible A/C failure.
Having professionals regularly check this system will help you stay ahead of any issues before disaster strikes…in July. In fact, experts recommend testing your vehicle’s air conditioning unit annually.
Our maintenance check starts with a thorough visual examination of the A/C unit and surrounding area–including the compressor and its belt–to make sure no tears, damage or leaks already exist. Next, we will check the system’s functionality and perform a leak check. Any issues discovered along the way will be repaired and retested to ensure ideal performance.
