Because of the warmer weather, you will shortly begin using your air conditioning. You might even find that it just isn’t as cold as you might expect. A good rule of thumb is that, if it doesn’t blow cold enough to make you turn it down, it isn’t working properly. As an aside, your defrosters are at least somewhat dependent upon your A/C too.
Because Ace started out as a “Radiator Shop,” many local businesses got in the habit of bringing evaporator and condenser coils for service. Pretty soon, Larry was diagnosing and repairing all their A/C work. Thus, a specialty was born.
Contrary to popular belief, air conditioners do not “use up” refrigerant. There are no such things as seals that, “just naturally leak a little over time.” If your A/C isn’t blowing cold, chances are you have a leak that needs to be repaired.
Now, just because your A/C is cooling somewhat does not mean you don’t have a problem. The refrigerant carries the oil which lubricates your A/C compressor. Without it, you have no A/C! Ignoring a very affordable leak repair could cost you a very expensive compressor.
Long story short, bring your car in to Ace for an A/C check. We’ll save you money in the long run and you’ll be a lot cooler in the mean time.
