Air Conditioning System Service At Byers Airport Subaru
Keep cool all summer long with A/C system service for your car at Byers! A/C systems use a special chemical refrigerant to help keep you cool as you drive on hot days. Occasionally, the vehicle will need to be refilled (or “recharged”) with more of this chemical. Doing so safely and correctly requires special tools and experience. Cut-rate products that might be available at the big box store or used by the neighborhood mechanic might not get the job done, and could even do damage to your vehicle! Instead, get this job done the right way at the Byers Airport Subaru service center.
How Does Air Conditioning Work On Modern Cars?
Electric cars are different, but modern Subaru vehicles with BOXER® gasoline engines typically use a belt-driven A/C compressor. As the engine spins, it also drives a belt, which spins a pulley on the compressor mounted elsewhere in the engine bay. This pushes A/C refrigerant through the system, so it can draw heat and humidity out of the cabin and replace it with cool, dry air. Over time, this refrigerant will leach out of the system, and the A/C will stop working.
How Often Does My Vehicle’s A/C System Need Maintenance?
For best performance and the cleanest air in the cabin free of smog and odors, Subaru recommends replacing the cabin air filter every 12,000 miles. A clogged air filter can choke the HVAC system and cause the vehicle’s air conditioning and heating systems to perform poorly.
Beyond that, you may one day come to find that the air coming out of the vents isn’t as cold as you expect. Over time, this will exacerbate until the A/C system isn’t working at all. All vehicles are different, and all cars lose A/C refrigerant at different rates. Once your vehicle’s A/C system stops working, stop by to have the system recharged with fresh refrigerant. When we’re through, you’ll get ice-cold air coming strong from the vents again for thousands of miles to come.
