Maumee Air Conditioning Service

Working up a sweat is a great thing to do in a gym around Maumee, but not in your vehicle. When Maumee residents' vehicle AC Systems have a problem, they'll often feel it right away. The question is, how long do you put up with it? You know, the old comfort versus cost dilemma. But a more comfortable drive around OH has a lot of benefits, and keeping the AC System well maintained can help prevent repairs.A common cause of AC failure is water and air in the system. The system does not work as well with air in it. And water can cause rust that leads to damage of the A/C components. Also refrigerant, the stuff that makes the air cold, can leak out, reducing the efficiency of the system and making it work harder to try to cool the air. That is why periodically evacuating the air conditioning system and recharging it keeps the proper amount of clean refrigerant in the system for Maumee residents, so it cools better and lasts longer.Maumee drivers should also run the air ... read more

Automotive Tips from Lange`s Auto Care, Inc.: Air Conditioning ? Common Problem

Your auto air conditioning system cools and conditions the air in your passenger compartment when you are driving around Maumee. It also removes moisture from the air to keep your windows from fogging up.A common A/C problem for Maumee drivers that visit Lange`s Auto Care, Inc. is contaminated refrigerant (the gas that cools the air). The inside of the A/C hoses deteriorates over time and tiny fragments of rubber clog passages. This makes the system less efficient and overworks various components.Leaks can develop at seals and gaskets and may reduce the amount of refrigerant, causing the system to work too hard to compensate. Dirty components can have the same consequences.Ask your Lange`s Auto Care, Inc. service advisor for an air conditioning system inspection to make sure everything is up to spec.Lange`s Auto Care, Inc.825 Ford St Suite AMaumee, OH 43537419-897-9988http://www.langesauto.com

Cool Breeze: Air Conditioning Service at Lange`s Auto Care, Inc. in Maumee

Most OH auto owners know that their vehicles need regular preventive maintenance like changing the oil and filters, rotating the tires and refilling the washer fluid. But did you know that your air conditioning system needs routine maintenance as well? Taking care of your air conditioning system can extend its life and prevent costly repair bills.Why is it important for Maumee area drivers to get routine maintenance on their air conditioning system? First, the refrigerant contains an added lubricant. As the refrigerant circulates through the air conditioning system, its parts are lubricated. This constant lubrication keeps the parts functioning well. But over time, this lubricant is used up, and without it, the parts will eventually seize up and fail.Maumee folks should understand, however, that the air conditioner will continue to pump out cool air even without the lubricant, so you won't know the system is si ... read more

Keep Your Cool in Maumee: Air Conditioning Service

Most Maumee drivers don't even think about their air conditioner. Now here's a tip for Maumee vehicle owners: Run your air conditioner every so often during OH 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 OH winters or during a rain storm, running the A/C on the defrost setting should help. Now on some Maumee 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. Maumee drivers should periodically purge the system and replace the refrigerant to remove the air and water.OH drivers would be wise to learn the early war ... read more
