The Important of Good A/C in Summer Heat

Found at:


At Walt's Auto Service, we understand how unbearable and uncomfortable the California heat can become, especially given that summer is right around the corner. With temperatures quickly reaching over 100 degrees, it's essential to have a proper A/C system in play. At Walt's Auto Service, we wanted to take the time to discuss good A/C and cooling for your vehicle so you can be prepared to get it fixed before that first unbearable summer heatwave. 


When Should I Get My A/C Unit Checked?

Thankfully this is a decently easy question to solve; the answer? You tell us! How does the air in your vehicle feel during your ride? Are you feeling refreshed after a couple of minutes? Or do you find yourself eventually caving in and rolling the windows down? If you think you are "cool as a cucumber," then you probably don't need a tune-up. However, if you find yourself rolling down the windows or thinking, "my A/C isn't cool enough,"/"it takes forever for any cold air to come out," then it's time to call us at Walt's Auto Service; for a check-up!


What is the Role of Coolant And Its Importance? 


Your vehicle's coolant keeps your car at a stable & comfortable temperature. If your vehicle didn't have any coolant, then your vehicle would run the risk of overheating or freezing, depending on the outside climate that you're in. Can you understand the importance of keeping the coolant clean now? A coolant flush is essentially removing all the old coolant and any subsequent chemical buildups (such as rust, contaminates, and scale deposits) from your engine. Then, the entire system is filled with a new coolant, which helps the engine run smoothly once more & keeps you comfortable and "cool as a cucumber." For reference, the most typical engine coolant fluid needs to be flushed every two years or 30,000 miles to ensure it works at peak efficiency. At Walt's our team is ready to perform complete checks of your vehicle's A/C as well as the entire cooling system to ensure everything is in tip-top shape and ready to tackle the hot summer months. Keeping your cooling system in prime condition will ensure a longer life overall for your vehicle as well as overall comfortability for you and passengers.
