The dog days of summer are here, and so we’re now in some of the hottest days of the year while dealing with increasingly colder evening. If you managed to go through the whole summer without having your car’s AC / Heating systems checked or repaired, then now is the perfect time to do so. Especially since the friendly experts at Thompson Auto Group are offering 15% off all Air Conditioner services or repairs.
Even if your system seems to be chugging along just fine for now, it could be worth your while to have it inspected, because your AC / Heating system effects more than just how comfortable you are inside the cabin.
Why the AC / Heat is important.
Your heater helps keep your engine cool. Combustion and engine friction produce a lot of heat. While most of this heat is expelled throguh your exhaust system, the rest needs some place to go. The remaining heat is mostly dissipated by a mixture of water and antifreeze circulating through the engine block. The rest can be effectively dispersed by redirecting it to your car’s interior through the heating system. Without a working heating system, your car could overheat on a hot summer day
Likewise, your air conditioning actually helps defrost your windshield. This is because the Air Conditioning system works mostly by removing humidity from the air in your car. If there’s no humidity, then nothing has a chance to condense on your windshield.
Regular Maintenance Prevents Compressor Failure
The compressor is the most important part of your car’s AC. It’s also the most expensive part to fix. Regular maintenance ensures proper coolant and lubrication levels which reduces the likelihood of compressor failure.
The AC / Heating System Helps Keep You Healthy
A big part of your system is the Cabin Air Filter. These filters trap most of the dust and pollen, and bacteria that exist in the air outside your dashboard. The air around your engine block is full of exhaust fumes and other contaminants which means that breathing it can be pretty harmful.
Your heating and Air conditioning system is extremely important, so have it checked by the pros at Thompson Auto Group today and take advantage of their end of summer discount to help you keep your ride as comfortable as possible.
