What they do: Heating and A/C systems help to keep your vehicle cabin warm in the winter and cool in the summer. The air conditioning system additionally offers a dual function of working your defrost in the winter season. Heating systems are comprised of a blower motor fan, heater hoses, coolant, and a heater core that acts like a small radiator behind the dash. Air conditioning systems work similarly, by delivering refrigerant to the evaporator under your dash and then the fan blows cool air in the cabin. Unlike residential heating and cooling systems, your heater and A/C don’t completely operate off electric parts, however they make use of the engine’s heat energy and the engine’s cooling down capacities to alter the temperature.
Why Do I Need This Service?
Heating and A/C systems wear out over time with usage. Hose and pipes can obstruct and leak if not serviced, leading to inadequate heating and cooling capabilities.
Best ways to know if your heating and A/C system is having troubles:
Air conditioning blows just a little cooler than the air outside
Your cabin does not warm up in winter or is just somewhat warmer than outside
Your heating unit or A/C only operates when driving, not when idling, or stops blowing when the vehicle is idling
Air that blows in smells moist, rotten, or like mildew
The defroster takes longer compared to normal to operate, blows in filthy air, or doesn’t work
Your heater blows chilly air or the A/C blows warm
At the greatest setting, your vents don’t push out much air
