Rapids Honda can complete an air conditioning service on your vehicle. This service is particularly important in the warmer months to ensure a cool, comfortable ride in your vehicle. Even when it isn’t warm, it is smart to be proactive with this service to ensure no further damage is caused.
It’s pretty easy to see why an A/C recharge service is important. If the refrigerant in your vehicle runs out and you don’t have it refilled, the air conditioner in your vehicle will not work. It is possible to damage your vehicle’s heating and air conditioning system if you run it long enough without refilling the refrigerant. Refilling the refrigerant as soon as your A/C starts to blow hot air is the best policy.
Your car’s air conditioning system runs on refrigerant, which is a gas that keeps the interior of your vehicle cool when you have the air conditioner on. The refrigerant in your car’s system will eventually run out after you use the air conditioner often enough. Your HVAC, the heating and cooling system, could leak and cause the refrigerant to run out more quickly. When the refrigerant in your vehicle’s air conditioning system runs out, it must be refilled. This process is often called “recharging.”
As you may have already experienced, putting off an air conditioner service will result in hot air coming out of your vehicle’s vents when you are looking for cold air. This is annoying, but the potential consequences are much worse than that. Running your A/C without refrigerant can result in your compressor being damaged. The compressor is the “heart” of your vehicle’s air system, so it is essential to the operation and expensive to replace.
