Automotive Tips from Courtesy Automotive Service: Air Conditioning – Common Problem

Your auto air conditioning system cools and conditions the air in your passenger compartment when you are driving around SAN CLEMENTE. It also removes moisture from the air to keep your windows from fogging up.

A common A/C problem for SAN CLEMENTE drivers that visit Courtesy Automotive Service is contaminated refrigerant (the gas that cools the air). The inside of the A/C hoses deteriorates over time and tiny fragments of rubber clog passages. This makes the system less efficient and overworks various components.

Leaks can develop at seals and gaskets and may reduce the amount of refrigerant, causing the system to work too hard to compensate. Dirty components can have the same consequences.

Ask your Courtesy Automotive Service service advisor for an air conditioning system inspection to make sure everything is up to spec.
