Modern, automotive climate control systems can be quite complex and should be checked at a minimum in the spring and fall in preparation for the hot and cold seasons. Its main function is to regulate the temperature within the vehicle cabin to keep passengers comfortable.
A few possible signs your vehicle's climate control system needs inspected:
Air Conditioning Inspection & Diagnosis
Your air conditioner is designed to do more than simply cool the air within the cabin. It also serves to purify and circulate air from outside or recirculate air within the cabin to keep passengers comfortable while traveling. Refrigerant runs through a sealed system removing warmer air from the interior becoming gaseous. As the refrigerant makes it way through the air conditioning system, it condenses from a hot gas back into its liquid state which is cooled and recycled. The process results in cool and even cold air being blown back into the vehicle's interior. The vehicle's drive belt powers the compressor which works together with a condenser and evaporator and other miscellaneous systems to keep you cool, even on the hottest days.
Air Conditioning Service & Repair
More importantly than cooling your vehicle, automotive air conditioners aid in limiting driver fatigue to keep all passengers safer during travel. Friction and combustion create substantial amounts of heat under the hood of your vehicle which are only multiplied by beaming sun rays and exposed roads. Your air conditioner works extremely hard to cool, purify and recirculate air throughout the cabin by pumping refrigerant which expands and contracts as it travels. Any failure in this or an adjacent system can keep you from benefiting from the advantages of air conditioning.
Heater Inspection & Diagnosis
Your heater works by absorbing excess engine heat through a mixture of water and antifreeze called coolant. Hoses direct coolant from the engine to the radiator where heat is expelled outward. Coolant is circulated to the heater core in the dash directing warm air into your vehicle’s cabin. Heater hoses are responsible for continuous circulation of the coolant. Additional components include the heater fan, water pump, thermostat, heater hoses, and heater core. Routine inspection may prevent issues with your heating system.
Heater Service & Repair
Your heating system contrasts from the air conditioner in that it transfer heat from the engine to the vehicle's cabin. Excess heat is absorbed by the coolant which travels through heater hoses to the radiator where heat dissipates back into the outside air. The water pump then pushes coolant back through the engine to the heater core which blows warm air back into the cabin.
The main components of this process include the radiator, thermostat and water pump. Secondary components include the blower motor, heater control valve, heater core, heater fan and heater hoses. All of these components work together to regulate temperatures in the engine and cabin compartments.
