Air Conditioning Service Tips for Your Vehicle
Replacing old refrigerant has another benefit: refrigerant tends to gather moisture and become corrosive. That causes leaks in the system which can be expensive to repair. Fresh refrigerant protects the air conditioning components and keeps the system operating at peak efficiency so it doesn't have to work as hard to keep you cool.
Even with regular service A/C parts can just wear out. Normal wear and tear eventually gets to all moving parts. Addressing early problems can save on more extensive repairs down the road. For instance, a common failure is the clutch that turns the compressor on and off. If you can take care of a bad A/C clutch when it first starts having problems, you may be able to save the compressor. Wait too long and you'll have to replace both.
If you're hearing strange sounds when your air conditioning turns on, or if it just isn't as cold as it used to be, have us give it the once over see what it'll take to keep you cool. Call Presley's Auto Showcase at 613-688-2301 for service recommendations.
