Keep Your Cool in Minneapolis: Air Conditioning Service

Sunday 27 January 2019

Most Minneapolis drivers don't even think about their air conditioner.

Now here's a tip for Minneapolis vehicle owners: Run your air conditioner every so often during MN winters. This circulates the lubricant to help keep the seals from drying out.

The air conditioner actually removes some of the moisture in the air. So if you have trouble with fogging on your vehicle windshield during MN winters or during a rain storm, running the A/C on the defrost setting should help. Now on some Minneapolis cars you can't run the A/C at the same time as the defroster. Don't ask me why, but I suspect lawyers were involved.

Also, air and water can get into the A/C system. That can reduce the efficiency of the system and also lead to corrosion that causes damage. Minneapolis drivers should periodically purge the system and replace the refrigerant to remove the air and water.

MN drivers would be wise to learn the early warning signs of A/C trouble: 1) The air's not as cold as it used to be. 2) It makes unusual noises when the A/C cycles on. Those are signs to get your vehicle into Uptown Imports in Minneapolis before the damage gets worse.

By following the recommended service intervals in your vehicle owner's manual, you can help prevent mechanical failure of your air conditioning system. Your A/C system contains some components like the compressor, condenser, dryer, etc. Anything Minneapolis car owners can do to lengthen the life of their A/C is well worth it.
