Stay Comfortable in Your Vehicle with Air Conditioning

Minit-Tune & Brake| Tuesday, August 09, 2016

Warmer temperatures are finally upon us! You probably spent the chilly winter days wishing for sunshine and warm weather. Now that it is here, though, it can be nice to have some respite from the heat! Heating and air conditioning systems in today’s vehicles do wonders to keep us comfortable on the road all year long. Like most parts of your car, they require regular maintenance to continue working properly and efficiently. Don’t waste time and money using a leaking air conditioner. Bring your vehicle in to your local Minit-Tune & Brake Auto Centre for an HVAC tune up or repair appointment before the mercury climbs even higher. You will enjoy better air quality, faster cooling times, and a comfortable drive all season long.

Signs Your Vehicle’s Air Conditioning is Having Trouble

Not sure if it is time for an air conditioning repair? Be on the safe side with an auto maintenance appointment in Vancouver and its surrounding cities or look for these common symptoms:

  • Fan isn’t working: If you turn on your fan and nothing happens, it is likely an electrical problem. Schedule a repair appointment to get things moving again.
  • Fan is blowing hot air: Are your fans rotating but not distributing cooled air? This common problem can make your vehicle uncomfortable to the point of distraction. This could be caused by a variety of issues. The compressor, a clogged system, and refrigerant are all usual suspects. If you aren’t sure where to look, consult your fast and friendly mechanic for repairs at Minit-Tune & Brake Auto Centre.
  • Temperature control problems: If your air conditioning is working but not quite getting to the temperature you want, or operating within a much lower temperature range, it could be caused by a variety of problems. Your V-belt or clutch could be slipping, or you may not have enough refrigerant. A dirty evaporator or condenser could also be to blame, or the receiver-drier being plugged.
