Outside of having your vehicle’s heating & air conditioning system regularly serviced, the best way to maintain it is to understand common trouble signs. By having this knowledge, you’ll be able to act quickly and communicate precisely what’s going to our team, which will lead to quick and productive repair service. Here are a couple of common warning signs you may experience when your vehicle’s system is experiencing problems.
Lack of Cool Air
Whenever you start your vehicle, it shouldn’t take too long for the air conditioning system to produce cold air, even if it’s at high temperatures. If you notice that the air isn’t as cool as before, or if there’s no cool air at all, there’s likely something wrong with your vehicle’s system. We recommend a proper evaluation and service as soon as possible to repair the system.
The vents in your vehicle are a perfect habitat for mildew to grow. If your car begins to smell musty and gross, bacteria and mildew are likely growing within your vehicle’s air conditioning system. The best way to avoid this is to make sure that you’re routinely replacing the cabin air filter found in the air conditioning system. If you keep it in there too long, it won’t be able to filter out contaminants and mildew may begin to grow on the filter!
