Time to Have Your AC Checked!

As you read about car AC maintenance in Arizona, you’ll learn:

  • Why AC maintenance is essential for caring for your vehicle
  • How Highline Car Care can help you keep your vehicle working properly

Arizona is known for its scorching summers, and whether you’re taking a family road trip or commuting to work, you want to stay cool in your car. Your vehicle’s AC system works hard to keep your car at a comfortable temperature, but air conditioning system problems sometimes occur and need to be fixed because you can stay cool while driving. Keeping your AC system well-maintained is essential for ensuring you don’t become overheated every time you get behind the wheel. Highline Car Care is happy to tune up your vehicle’s AC to make sure it’s in proper working order before the summer heat hits.

AC Maintenance

Having your car serviced every year for maintenance is advisable, but it is crucial to have your vehicle’s AC system checked out at least once every seven years. Your car can’t cool properly if it doesn’t have enough refrigerant, and a noticeable amount of the substance can be lost over seven years. One of the first things we do at a service appointment is check the level of refrigerant in your system and top it off if necessary. You may think that you can save money by charging the cooling system yourself, but the DIY cans used to refill your AC system are often inaccurate. If you inadvertently put in more or less refrigerant than your system needs, the results could be catastrophic.

At an AC maintenance visit, we also examine the condition of your air filter. This component is responsible for keeping germs, dirt, pollen, dirt, and other pollutants from entering your vehicle’s cabin, but filters often get clogged over the years and impede airflow. You should replace your air filter once a year.

The final element we look at during a maintenance visit is the condition of your engine cooling system. If it is randomly blowing hot and cold air and not cooling correctly, it could cause your engine to overheat. We make sure you have plenty of antifreeze to combat this issue.

AC Repair

While routine maintenance can help you avoid many AC repairs, sometimes different components of your car’s AC system malfunction and need to be fixed or replaced. At Highline Car Care, we try to repair damaged parts when possible. When the damaged components are beyond repair, we use high-quality replacement parts to get your system working correctly again. Our mechanics are experienced and knowledgeable about many common AC problems, including the ones listed below:

  • Faulty wiring
  • Faulty AC blower motor
  • Faulty blower motor resistor
  • Faulty climate control head

If you notice that your vehicle’s AC system isn’t working as well as it should be, you may have a problem with one of the components. Highline Car Care will check every aspect of your car’s AC system so we can identify the part that isn’t working and replace it. Before we turn the vehicle back over to you, we’ll make sure all of the other AC components are working correctly, so your car stays cool even in scorching weather.
