So to assure your vehicle’s air conditioning runs at optimum levels is a high priority for anyone who spends much time in their cars in hot weather.
A/C Pros notes a car without air conditioning is basically a greenhouse on wheels. That’s why it feels so much hotter than outside of the car.
A/C Pros also say a car parked for an hour can easily reach an interior temperature 43 degrees or higher than outside the car.
That’s why it’s so important to keep your air conditioning working at its best – to cool the car down and keep it that way for a comfortable ride.
Windows left open only intensify the greenhouse-like reaction. Air conditioning works better when it has a cooler interior to start with. Experts suggest you open the windows all the way when you first rung the air conditioning to cool things faster by blowing the hot air out of your vehicle.
Turn the air conditioning to full blast at first, which will blow the hot air out the open windows and allow the air conditioning to cool more quickly. Once the temperature feels right, gear back the air conditioner’s fan.
The air you breathe in your car comes through a filter. If that filter is filthy, what you breathe may be unhealthy, particularly if you have asthma or allergies. Regular filter changes are important, not just for the health of your air conditioning, but your own health, too.
Your air conditioning needs regular inspections, just like the rest of your car. But if you notice its performance dwindling, have it serviced quickly.
Faulty air conditioning isn’t a problem you want in the heat of summer, and it’s usually something that can be fixed relatively quickly. Give us a call for any questions.
