Temperatures are getting cooler by the day in Broomfield; in a couple of months, winter will be upon us. Now is the perfect time to schedule heating and AC maintenance so that you can enjoy peace of mind knowing your car’s heater will function properly. If you already know there’s a problem or your heater is blowing cold air, Fine Tuned Automotive is the auto repair center you can trust for heating and AC repair.
We depend on our cars and trucks for going to and from work, chauffeuring the kids around to school and other events, and running errands. Considering we spend so much time in our vehicles, it is essential that the heater works to keep us comfortable and warm. This is especially true when temperatures start to dip into the 30s, 40s, and 50s.
Snow and other winter weather is common in Broomfield, CO during the winter season. Not only is a properly functioning heating system important for your comfort, but for your safety as well. When someone becomes stranded in their car or truck due to snow, ice, or a mechanical breakdown, it can be dangerous when the heater doesn’t work depending on weather conditions. Imagine it being 35 degrees outdoors and help can’t get to you for an hour or two – or even longer. No working heater means you (and perhaps your family) are freezing and miserable.
Automotive heating and AC systems need regular maintenance to work as they should, providing cool, comfortable air in summer months, and warm air during winter months. Your heater may blow cold air, or none at all. Maybe a little heat comes from the vents, but even at the highest fan setting the air is minimal. Regular heating and AC maintenance is key to making sure your family will be comfortable whenever you travel, regardless of the season. It’s also less costly to prevent problems before they become even bigger issues.
What do our skilled automotive technicians do when inspecting your heating and AC systems to ensure they operate properly?
- Inspect the AC belt for cracks and other damage
- Compare the AC pressure to what is recommended by the manufacturer
- Check interior vent air temperature
- Inspect interior air blower
- Inspection for any AC system refrigerant leaks
- Check thermostat, coolant level, radiator hoses, and pressure cap
Some motorists notice that the heater works when they are driving, but upon stopping or idling it stops working. Whether this is happening to you or there are other issues with your heating and AC system, our team will perform a thorough inspection and have you back on the road in comfort.
When temperatures are uncomfortable outdoors, you want your car or truck to provide a comfortable environment while you travel. Nothing is worse than heading out to warm your car up before work, and nothing happens; you must endure the freezing temperature until you arrive at your destination. The minute this happens to you, schedule a service appointment.
