Residents of Tucson, AZ, know that sitting in a hot car in the middle of summer is a completely miserable experience. You can roll your windows down, but the air blowing on you is still hot, making it impossible to cool down. Summer temperatures in the Tucson area tend to hover around one hundred degrees and the extreme high temperatures of summer extend well into autumn. However, having your vehicle’s air conditioning system functioning at peak capacity can go a long way toward improving your quality of life this summer and fall.
Often drivers don’t even think about their air conditioning until after it fails. However, practicing proper preventative maintenance can keep your air conditioner running efficiently and help you to avoid more expensive repairs later on down the road. Catching problems early can also save you money on repairs.
Some warning signs that you should watch for coming from your air conditioner include:
Air that is warm, or not as cold as it used to be
The A/C unit failing to blow air from the vents at all
Loud noises when the air conditioning is turned on
Your vehicle running hot or overheating when running the air conditioner
Any unusual odors coming from the air vents.
