When the warm weather hits, everyone wants their automobiles air conditioner up and running as best it can be. We all can relate to the misery of driving around during the summer time with a poorly performing air conditioning unit. There are a few simple things that any shop like Proctor Acura can perform to make sure that you're a/c system is running well and lasts longer.
One of the important things you can do involves your car's filter. Every car has a pollen filter that controls the quality of air that you're breathing inside your vehicle. These are quite simple to replace, and very easy to maintain. These filters are designed to trap pollen, mold, dust particles, you name it, and therefore can be very important for anyone that has allergies. Air Filters are usually hidden away in dash, and are very easy to forget about. But they are very easy to replace, and will keep the quality of the air conditioning in your car at a high level.
Visual inspections under the hood are also important, especially for locating tell-tale signs of leaks. Any time you have a leak in your system, it's safe to say your air conditioning will not be performing as well as it should be. Looking at the system may reveal leaks at O-Ring sites or in Rubber Hoses. They will often leave a trace of oil, or even a fluorescent dye in the system that will indicate a leak. If the leak is difficult to find, we can use an Electronic Leak Detector which will pinpoint almost any leak in any a/c system.
Air conditioning repairs can be expensive. Some simple checks from time to time will insure the longevity of your system. You'll be a happy driver with a properly functioning A/C unit, especially during the smoldering heat of the Summer time.
