Now that our brief summer season is in full swing, it's nice to have an air conditioner in your car that works when you need it. Before long, we'll be back to colder weather and you'll be depending on your heater and defrosters again. Either way, it's good to have an A/C system that is running right. Now is a great time of year to get it serviced!
Bring your car, truck, SUV or work vehicle into Simard Automotive for a complete air conditioning inspection, tune-up and cleaning. Here are a few of the things we will take care of to keep your air conditioner/heater working efficiently.
Over time, the vehicle's thermostat can start to become less dependable or it could fail altogether. We can run tests and check the thermostat settings to make sure it's reading the right temperatures and sending the proper signals to the A/C system controls.
Vents can get filled with dirt, dust, grime and grease the longer you drive your car. You want to get them professionally cleaned every so often. This will keep the air flowing as it should and also keep less pollutants from blowing around the passenger cabin.
Cabin Air Filter Replacement
If you notice funny smells when you turn on the air conditioner or heater, there's a good chance your cabin air filter is overdue for replacement. We will check it and replace it if needed.
Sometimes, the refrigerant (aka "Freon" or A/C coolant) can get low and needs recharging. This is a job best left to the professionals to get the job done right and safely.
Other A/C Tests and Tune-Up Procedures
At Simard Automotive, we are very thorough in everything we do and that is true in our A/C system services. We check everything and run focused tests. If anything is wrong, we will recommend the necessary repairs. Otherwise, we get everything cleaned and tuned up so you get the best performance from your air conditioner, heater and defrosters.
