A Cold Day in SAINT CHARLES – Air Conditioning Service at JC Car Care & Tire

Posted April 17, 2017 2:30 AM


Most SAINT CHARLES drivers worry about a breakdown or a tire blowout on a busy MO highway, but don't worry too much about failure of their air conditioning system. A breakdown on the side of the road can be a miserable and dangerous affair during SAINT CHARLES rush hour, but so can a long ride in a hot vehicle.

A lot of SAINT CHARLES drivers judge their vehicles' air conditioning systems as “non-essential” and so may neglect them in favor of repairs and maintenance that keep the vehicle running. But preventive maintenance of an air conditioning system is simple and inexpensive, while auto a/c repair can be very expensive.

SAINT CHARLES drivers should have the refrigerant in their air conditioning system checked regularly to ensure it is adequate and clean. Air conditioning systems often fail because air and water have contaminated the refrigerant. Air reduces the efficiency of the refrigerant, and water can cause rusting of the system's components. If your refrigerant is contaminated, the system should be evacuated and recharged. This will actually extend the life of your air conditioning system, preventing repairs, and keep it at peak performance.

At JC Car Care & Tire, we advise our SAINT CHARLES customers to run their air conditioner periodically in the winter. This will keep the seals from drying out and cracking, saving them the inconvenience of this relatively minor repair.

Check with your vehicle owner's manual or with your friendly service advisor at JC Car Care & Tire for information about how often your vehicle air conditioning system should be serviced.
