Keeping your auto air conditioning in great condition is crucial. At State Street Auto Service, we want to ensure you can keep cool in the summertime and stay warm in the winter! That’s why our ASE-Certified technicians take particular care in examining and, if needed, restoring your car’s air conditioning. Here are just a few reasons to bring your car in for regular auto air conditioning service at State Street Auto Service!
1. Regular Preventative Maintenance
Auto air conditioning can malfunction for lots of reasons, but we know the most common one is a lack of maintenance. Older cars (pre-1994) require air conditioning service once a year at least. With newer cars, maintenance checks need to be done regularly to prevent any issues with coolant, Freon, compressors, and other problem areas when it comes to air conditioning service. Take for example another frequent culprit of A/C disrepair: Freon. Leaked Freon can become corrosive to other auto parts and result in even more damages. Since air conditioners lose 5-10% of their Freon a year, it’s important to stay on top of repairs. One of the things regular air conditioning service prevents is the spread of any leaks as well as fixing them, and recycling and refreshing your car’s refrigerant.
2. Energy & Environmental Efficiency
Getting leaks fixed in the A/C is of particular importance for energy conservation and helping the environment. When the A/C has fresh coolant and Freon, it takes less energy to keep your car cool. But when Freon leaks, it’s also incredibly bad for the environment. At State Street, we get it. Or service advisors understand all your concerns from environmental conservation to high-tech advancements to, plain and simple, saving you time and cost down the line.
3. Not Just Hot Air
As anyone who's A/C has broken down before, it’s not just hot air coming from this system. Depending on the car, air conditioning controls heat, cool, defrost, humidity, and even air quality!
4. Longer Lasting Parts
Of course, auto parts wear out after a while, so we encourage our customers to bring their cars in frequently to catch any issues. Often, an unchecked air conditioning system can cause the car to work too hard and wear out other parts, making for expensive repairs and replacement parts. Letting State Street Auto Service check on your hybrid or light diesel truck’s air conditioner can prevent those unnecessary expenses and extend the life of your car.
5. Better Mileage
Without a properly working A/C system, the car uses more energy to keep it running, resulting in lower gas mileage! At State Street Auto, we understand that every driver needs an efficient, functional A/C system to get them through the summer months without a sweat. That’s why our technicians provide the best air conditioning service, to keep your car cool and your mileage high.
