As the summer sun blazes, there’s nothing quite like the relief and comfort of stepping into a cool, air-conditioned vehicle. But just like any other part of your vehicle, your vehicle’s air conditioning system requires proper maintenance to keep running smoothly during the hottest months of the year.

Regular maintenance is key to ensuring your vehicle’s air conditioning system is up to the task of keeping you cool. Schedule a professional inspection with our trusted and experienced team at Dr. Automotive before the summer heat sets in to check for any leaks, worn-out components, or other issues that could affect the performance of your system. Our team of experienced technicians can diagnose any problems and make the necessary repairs to get your air conditioning system running at its best.

Here are a few simple tips to help you stay cool and comfortable in your vehicle during the summer.

  1. Park in the shade whenever possible to reduce the heat that builds up inside the vehicle.
  2. Use a sunshade or window visor to help block the sun’s rays while the vehicle is parked and to help retain the cool air.
  3. Maintain refrigerant at optimal levels and check levels regularly to ensure efficient cooling performance.
  4. Replace the worn-out cabin air filter regularly to keep airflow from getting clogged.
  5. Keep windows slightly cracked when the vehicle is parked to help with ventilation
  6. Leave your vehicle doors open for a few minutes to let the hot air exit before entering the vehicle.

With these helpful tips, you can stay cool on the road this summer and enjoy a comfortable and refreshing drive wherever your travels take you.
