When those hot summer months are creeping up, and driving around with the windows down becomes uncomfortable, it’s time to turn on the A/C. If you reach for the control only to have warm air blow in your face, it may be time to have your unit serviced to get you back to the ice-cold air you deserve. In today’s world, air conditioning is more of a necessity than a luxury. As such, it’s best to have the system serviced on a yearly basis to ensure you are able to keep your car cool and comfortable during those sweltering summer days. An A/C unit has many components that can wear out or break with regular usage. Below is a list of some of the signs that you can look out for to know if your unit may need servicing:
A/C blows warm air
Air only blows cool when the car is in motion, not while parked or stopped at a light
Musty smell coming from the air blowing in
Airflow is low, even when unit is on max A/C
At Doug’s Automotive, we offer a comprehensive examination of your heating and air conditioning unit. Our certified technicians will check each part of the unit, verifying that there are no leaks or cracks in the system, and that fluids are at an optimum level. They will inspect all belts, hoses and seals impacting the system’s performance, and perform tests to ensure the air blowing is cold, and that the air pressure meets the specifications of the manufacturer.
Doug’s Automotive believes in being honest with our customers. If your unit only needs servicing, we are not going to sell you on replacing it. Our business is built around honest diagnostics, exceptional service, and prices that won’t break the bank. If your vehicle is not keeping you cool, contact Doug’s today for an A/C inspection!
