Auto Air Conditioning Repair

How Important is Your Cars Air Conditioning System?

Florida can always be counted on for two things, summer heat and summer sun. Both climate factors have a tremendous effect on everything from, humans going about their everyday lives, to the automobiles they drive doing it. As Floridians, we can cool off just about anywhere we want, even in the cars we drive. When temperatures rise and older auto air conditioning systems are stressed to the breaking point, there is only one repair shop with ASE certified mechanics, holding over 350 automobile repair certifications and that’s at Muffler City Auto Repair right here in Jacksonville, Fla. Having a properly working, auto air conditioning system is just about one of the most important things to most Floridians during the hot summer months. And keeping your cars auto air conditioner running at peak performance is a task that should not be left to just any repair garage.

Automobile air conditioning systems should be checked on an annual basis but let’s face it, how many of us ever think to have a professional auto mechanic service the cooling systems unless something goes wrong. We are constantly changing the oil, oil filters, air filters, (both in the engine bay and internal air filters in the cab) repairing brakes, checking tires for air pressure and look for any road damage, but the air conditioning system, never. Even when we have a limited auto service performed at one of those Quick Lube, “Big Box Auto Shops” that hire high school kids at minimum wage, getting under our Mercedes, Infiniti’s and F150’s, do they even know where the air conditioning condenser is, probably not. Most of us, having those routine services performed at those auto repair 7/11’s, are taking a big chance every time someone opens up the hood or gets under one of the biggest investment you and I ever make, our cars. Servicing a car is as important as repairing it, because having the right service performed at the right time will in fact reduce the repairs that will need to be made in the future.

If you had a problem with the cold air blowing hot in your car, where would you take it? Who would you trust the second most important feature your car has to offer, except maybe the automatic transmission, just anyone.

Should Cars have their Air Conditioners Checked on an Annual Basis?

The answer to that question is yes. It is very important to have your auto air conditioner serviced annually, which will extend the life of the auto air conditioning unit and will ensure it is running at peak performance, saving you time, money and comfort. Additionally, as a well-informed, intelligent consumer, you need to make sure that your automobiles air conditioners are serviced by a qualified ASE Certified mechanic, who knows what they are doing. Auto air conditioners can be complicated pieces of equipment and servicing them; checking for coolant leaks, lubricating and properly flushing the system, recharging and replacing worn belts, is important to prolonging its life and ensuring that every time you go and cool the car down, you get comfortable, cool dry air blowing out of your vents.
