Understanding the AC System
Like many other components in your car, your air conditioning needs maintenance over its service life so it can perform its duties well. In addition to keeping you and your fellow passengers cool and comfortable, it also controls humidity, prevents pollutants from entering the cabin, and keeps everyone inside healthier—especially if you’re prone to allergies. In order to maintain proper function, every component needs to be in optimal shape! Like a window unit or central air, your car’s AC system comprises of several parts, each of which needs periodic inspection, adjustment, or even replacement: the fans that circulate air, the filters that keep that air clean, coolant that regulates temperature through condenser coils, and the thermostat, compressor, condenser, evaporator, wiring, and much more.
