COVID-19: Contact your local Meineke for information on enhanced safety measures
It almost goes without saying that your vehicle’s air conditioning is important—if for no other reason than your comfort, and the comfort of your passengers, on hot days. But it’s not just about keeping cool. The air conditioning unit in your vehicle can also create dehumidified air—which in turn demystifies your steamed-up windows during the winter months. Finally, a properly functioning air conditioning system filters out pollutants that might otherwise invade your vehicle’s cabin space.
No part of your vehicle is made to last forever, of course, and the air conditioning system is no different. It undergoes a lot of daily wear and tear which can eventually cause it to break down completely. Certainly, it’s smart to get an AC check if you begin to notice the air isn’t as cool as it used to be. It’s also prudent to plan an AC check once a year or so, when you’re at Meineke in North Huntingdon PA getting other routine maintenance done.
The auto air conditioning is an important part of your vehicle, without question—but not just for the obvious reason. Sure, it helps you and your passengers remain cool during the summer months. In addition, your air conditioning system allows you to demystify your steamy windows during the cold months of winter. And don’t forget that the auto air conditioning maintains air quality within your cabin, stripping the air of pollutants and contaminants. All told: It’s an important system, and worth taking care of with regular air conditioning service.
If nothing else, you need a routine auto AC service call to make sure you have sufficient refrigerant; remember that this is a necessary ingredient in keeping your vehicle cool, and that you use somewhere around 15 percent of it every year. More generally, an auto AC check is needed because you use that system every day, and it takes a lot of wear and tear. Naturally, the AC isn’t going to last forever—so give it the attention it needs.
There are a couple of reasons why you might eventually need to have some air conditioning repair work done. One, speaking generally, is that your air conditioning system does a lot of hard work, and eventually that heavy lifting will lead to wear and tear. Any one component of the system can break and throw the whole thing off; an AC check will help you identify and correct problems before that happens. Additionally, you’ll eventually run low on refrigerant, which is a critical ingredient in keeping your cabin cool. That’s when an AC recharge is needed.
The surest way of knowing that your auto air conditioning needs an inspection is that it’s not working the way it’s supposed to—plain and simple. Specifically, an AC that’s no longer pushing out cool air needs to be checked ASAP. Head down to Meineke in North Huntingdon PA to have it done!
