Air Conditioning Maintenance at The C & C Auto Show in Augusta


Warm weather or cold, Augusta drivers still need to think about their vehicle's air conditioning. Most Augusta people don't service their air conditioning until after it fails. At The C & C Auto Show, we can advise you on your vehicle manufacturers preventive maintenance schedules for air conditioning service, just as we do for transmission service, oil changes and so on.

Maintaining your air conditioning system means that you always have enough refrigerant to properly do the job. Small leaks in the vehicle's air conditioning system allow the refrigerant to escape and the system can't cool the air as well. We see that a lot at The C & C Auto Show in Augusta.

The refrigerant also contains oil that lubricates air conditioning components and keeps the seals resilient. Low refrigerant and lubricating oil means that the air conditioning parts will wear out prematurely, and all Augusta vehicle owners know that air conditioning repairs can be costly. At The C & C Auto Show, we recommended that the air conditioner be run regularly, even during winter months, to keep the parts and seals lubricated.

Augusta drivers need to be aware that there's one more thing that isn't directly related to air conditioning service but does impact the quality of the air in your vehicle. And that's your cabin air filter. This filter cleans dust, pollen, pollution and other impurities in the air that come from the heater and air conditioner. The cabin air filter needs to be replaced when it's dirty. If you don't, it'll start to smell. Not all vehicles have one, so ask your The C & C Auto Show service advisor to check your cabin air filter at the same time they're doing your air conditioning service.

Automotive Tips from The C & C Auto Show: Air Conditioning – Common Problem

Your auto air conditioning system cools and conditions the air in your passenger compartment when you are driving around Augusta. It also removes moisture from the air to keep your windows from fogging up.

A common A/C problem for Augusta drivers that visit The C & C Auto Show is contaminated refrigerant (the gas that cools the air). The inside of the A/C hoses deteriorates over time and tiny fragments of rubber clog passages. This makes the system less efficient and overworks various components.

Leaks can develop at seals and gaskets and may reduce the amount of refrigerant, causing the system to work too hard to compensate. Dirty components can have the same consequences.

Ask your The C & C Auto Show service advisor for an air conditioning system inspection to make sure everything is up to spec.
