Does your car keep its cool in the Fairfax summer heat? Are you warm and comfortable when the mercury plummets in the winter? If your car is not maintaining the proper temperature and shuttling you around in comfort, it is time to do something about it.
A functional heating and cooling system is essential for your safety and driving comfort, especially when the weather takes a sharp turn. You might think that your air conditioning repairs can wait, but what happens when the springtime weather suddenly turns hot? You may put off fixing the heater in your car, but what about those sudden autumn cold snaps the Fairfax area is known for? If you need help with your automotive heating and cooling, you cannot afford to wait, and Fairfax Auto Repair is always here to help.
Does Your Air Conditioning Need a Charge?
When was the last time you checked the air conditioner in your car? If the weather has been cool lately, chances are you have not run the A/C for awhile now, so how do you know it is really working.
Now is the time to check your air conditioning – before the Fairfax area experiences its first heat wave of the summer. Take a minute to turn on your air conditioning, then wait for the blast of cool air. If you are not greeted with that cool air, the A/C may need a charge. Just bring your vehicle to Fairfax Auto Repair for the charge you need, so you can enjoy a cool and comfortable summer driving season.
Does Your Thermostat Need Replaced?
The thermostat is the key to your automotive heating and cooling system. By maintaining an accurate temperature reading, the thermostat helps determine when your climate control system kicks in, so you can stay comfortable no matter how hot or cold the weather is outside.
If your thermostat is not working right, neither will the rest of your heating and cooling system. Thermostat problems are not always apparent – they can be quite subtle, but there are some signs to watch out for.
If the temperature gauge never goes off the cool reading, a faulty thermostat could be to blame. So keep a close eye on your temperature gauge as you drive – if you suspect a problem with the thermostat, the staff at Fairfax Auto Repair is here to help. Just give us a call or make an appointment today – we will check your thermostat, and the rest of your heating and cooling system, make any necessary repairs and send you on your way in comfort.
