Not having air conditioning can make for steamy summer rides. Who wants to get out of their car, dripping with sweat? Making sure that your car’s air conditioning is working is a critical aspect of making riding in your car comfortable and enjoyable. You might not know a lot about your heating and cooling systems, so here’s a brief primer on what your care does to keep you comfortable.
Creating heat. Automotive experts at the Seven Hills Rad Air Complete Car Care and Tire Center location indicate that all of the heat that you need is provided by the engine. The heater core collects hot air and then uses a small fan to pump it into your car’s cabin through the heating vents.
Keeping cool. Unlike heat from the car’s engine, air conditioning is a separate system. The same fan that pumps hot air, pumps pre-cooled air from the radiator over additional cooling coils that work like your home’s air conditioning.
They require maintenance. You depend on your heating and cooling more than you think, so doing regular maintenance makes sense. Vacuuming out the vents and checking the level of coolant can help you to stay comfortable while you are driving.
It’s an easy fix. Generally, heating and cooling issues are easy to fix, making it affordable for you to drive comfortably.
