Lasalle Auto Center Air Conditioning Service
Your air conditioning system keeps the interior of the car cool and you comfortable during those hot days while driving in your car. If you encounter any problems you should bring it in to get a proper diagnosis and we will get it working again in no time.
Why it is important:
- You’re A/C system could leak refrigerant which causes poor to no cooling in your vehicle.
- A service technician will test pressures and the test operation of the system, refrigerant charge and outlet temperatures.
- Your vehicle may run low on refrigerant, in which case a leak test is performed to find the exact source of the leak.
- For your overall satisfaction and comfort when you have those long, hot drives.
Did you know? Your A/C system also helps improve defroster operation?
A drive belt makes the air conditioning compressor turn, and that keeps the refrigerant circulating like it should?
If the belt is worn, stretched or cracked it can slip or even break. This stops the compressor. When that happens, circulation stops and the air conditioner will stop cooling.
If you smell a musty or mildew odor when the fan is first turned on, or all the time when the system is running, this can be an indicator that mold or mildew is growing in the evaporator box?
If this be the case then bring it into our repair shop and we can have a look at it and clean it up if necessary.
Turning your A/C off results in very minimal gas savings?
A lot of us are concerned with fuel mileage; however, modern A/C systems are really efficient and cause minimal fuel consumption.
- A thorough inspection of your vehicle’s A/C system should be performed annually.
- A vibration or abnormal noise when the fan is on could indicate debris in the blower fan. It is known that mice like to make nests in the fans.
- When you get into a hot car, roll your windows down a little for the first few blocks. If you have a recirculation button, make sure it’s turned off. After the hot air is gone, turn recirculation on to get the most out of your A/C system.
