Keep Your Car AC Healthy

Even though it’s September, summer isn’t over yet. It’s still hot and humid in Alabama. You’ll more than likely stop using your car air conditioning in a few months, but doesn’t mean that you should neglect maintaining it. To ensure that your AC runs smoothly for the rest of the warm season, and when you want it to work for next summer.  Image of car air conditioning knob.

Service Your Air Conditioner Regularly

Professional air conditioning maintenance helps ensure maximum comfort for you and your passengers. Your air conditioner does not simply blow cool air into your cabin,  it removes hot air from within the car, and disburses hot air around the outside of the car. The AC is composed of several parts such as the evaporator, compressor and condenser. All the parts need to work correctly, and they need to be checked for wear and tear.

Maintenance Tips

You should run your air conditioner at least once a week for a few minutes even in the winter. Doing so helps ensure that the valves, pumps and hoses in the system remain lubricated and functioning.

Ask your mechanic to check your air conditioner’s refrigerant, and to re-gas the system if needed. Have your air conditioner checked out once a year for the best results.

  1. I like how you said, “…run your air conditioner at least once a week for a few minutes even in the winter”. My friend runs his AC once every month no matter what. He says that his system works much better all the time because of this. Also, it saves him time and money year-round. Do you think I should start doing this too?

  2. I certainly hope that my AC works better next summer than it did this summer. I don’t know if I’ve ever had it checked, like you said to do, so I’ll have to do that this fall. I want it ice cold next year, not lukewarm like it is now.
