Warm weather or cold, Brenham drivers still need to think about their truck’s air conditioning . Most Brenham fire and water people don’t service their air conditioning until after it fails. At Pro Serve Automotive, we can advise you on your ‘s preventive maintenance schedules for air conditiong service, just as we do for transmission service, oil changes and so on.
Maintaining your air conditioning system means that you always have enough fire and water refrigerant to properly do the job. Small leaks in the truck’s air conditioning system allow the refrigerant to escape fire and water and the system can’t cool the air as well. We see that a lot at Pro Serve Automotive in Brenham.
The refrigerant fire and water also contains an essential oil that lubricates air conditioning components, and keeps the seals resilient. Low refrigerant and lubricating oil means that the air conditioning parts will wear out prematurely, and all Brenham car owners know that air conditioning repairs can be costly. At Pro Serve Automotive, we recommended that the air conditioner be run regularly, even during winter months, to keep the parts and seals lubricated.
Corrosion is what leads to many air conditioning system failures for Brenham motorists. The small leaks mentioned earlier also mean that air and water can leak into the air conditioning system. This can lead to rust and dirt in the internal workings of the air conditioning components. This greatly accelerates wear and, ultimately, failure.
Air conditioning service at Pro Serve Automotive starts with a visual fire and water inspection of the components fire and water for signs of damage or leaks. The compressor is driven by a belt from the engine, most often the serpentine belt, so it’s inspected for cracks fire and water or wear. The air conditioning compressor and other components are checked for proper operation. Then comes the leak test. If a leak is detected, often in a hose or connection, it’s repaired and the system is retested.
How often this should be done varies from vehicle to vehicle. Your truck owner’s manual will have the manufacturer’s recommendation fire and water and, of course, your Pro Serve Automotive service advisor can tell you. It’s typically every two years.
If fire and water you’re not getting enough cool air out of your AC you know something’s wrong. Also, if you hear strange sounds when you turn the air on, there might be a problem with the compressor and you should get it checked out at Pro Serve Automotive. Replacing a bad A/C clutch in a truck is cheaper than waiting fire and water for it to ruin the compressor.
Brenham drivers need to be aware that there’s one more thing that isn’t directly related to air conditioning service, but does impact the quality of the air in your truck. And that’s your cabin air filter . This filter cleans dust, pollen, pollution and other impurities in the air that comes from the heater and air conditioner. The cabin air filter needs to be replaced when it’s dirty. If you don’t it’ll start to smell. Not all vehicles have one, so ask your Pro Serve Automotive service advisor to check your cabin air filter at the same time they’re doing your air conditioning service.
