Get Your Air Conditioning Fixed Before You Feel the Heat
Are you battling the summer heat, in your car or vehicle? Have you been thinking that it might be worth getting an air conditioning service and repair? Here at Duramax, we specialize in the service and maintenance of vehicle air conditioning units, helping to keep our customers cool no matter what summer throws at us.
Rather than wait until things get bad, or worse, if you spot any of the signs below you can bring your vehicle in for service and smaller repairs which means smaller bills and more savings for you. With graduation parties, vacations and summer cookouts, more cash in your wallet is a wonderful thing. The warning signs are easy to spot, if you know what to look for. So, we’ve pulled together a short description how and what to spot when it’s time to have your AC serviced or repaired rather than replaced.
Warning signs that your air conditioning unit is in need of service.
It doesn’t work the way it used to.
Do you find yourself cranking the fan higher, or running the air conditioning for longer periods of time? These are signs that your car or trucks AC Unit is no longer functioning fully and that it could either have a leak, or be headed for a total breakdown.
There’s something there that wasn’t there before.
Have you noticed anything other than cold air coming from your vents? Is there a noise like a clanging or banging? Or maybe you’ve noticed a bit of a smell…something like mildew? Rather than crank up the volume or plug in an air freshener, this is a good time to get things checked out.
Puddles are pooling, inside your vehicle.
Keep an eye out for persistent puddles in the foot wells. While some may actually be the result of wet shoes on a rainy day, a clogged drain hose can cause your air conditioning to “leak” water from built up condensation.
Keep an eye on your sensors.
If your car or truck’s interior or exterior temperature sensor is bad, it may keep your air conditioner from turning on. When these sensors don’t work, your vehicle can’t take an accurate reading and therefore won’t respond properly.
A/C isn’t just for Summer!
Did you know that air conditioning in the winter helps dehumidify the air, reducing fogged up windows, making it safer to drive. It also helps control the temperature, keeps the A/C system components in better condition, and helps control the loss of refrigerant.
If your car or truck is experiencing any of these signs, don’t sweat, just give us a call and stay cool!
