How have you been coping this Summer with the heat? And how has your car's air conditioning performing? Is the output refreshing and cooling? Does it help? In case this point has never occurred to you, your vehicle’s AC needs a little TLC. Here at LK's Auto Repair, we'd like to help assist you in maintaining your air conditioner during the hot month of August. Keep reading for tips on how to keep your car cool!
One way to keep your air conditioner in good shape is by testing it for potential issues. Try it out in the early morning before the sun heats up the interior of your car and look for leaking, odd smells, or just not enough cooling output. If you notice any of these potential issues, it's time to bring your car in for air conditioning service.
Another way to keep your air conditioner in good shape is by cleaning the air filter. A clogged air filter will restrict air flow and make your AC work harder than necessary. Clean or replace your air filter every 12,000 miles or so to keep things running smoothly.
Finally, have your air conditioner checked by a professional at least once a year (preferably in the month of August unless you sense trouble beforehand). This will help ensure that it's operating at peak efficiency and catch any potential problems before they become major repairs. LK's Auto Repair can take a look at your air conditioner and recharge the system if necessary. We'll also check for leaks and repair them so that your air conditioner is back in good working order.
We hope these tips help you keep cool this August! If you have any questions or need assistance, please click here to schedule an appointment with LK’s Auto Repair in Bremerton to keep your car in great working condition!
