Don’t let the scorching heat catch you off guard! Your car’s air conditioning system plays a vital role in keeping you cool and comfortable during those hot summer drives. However, like any mechanical system, A/C units can experience issues over time. Being aware of the warning signs that indicate a failing A/C system can save you from a sweaty and uncomfortable journey. That’s why it’s important to keep an eye out for these red flags during your daily commutes:

Signs that your A/C system may be failing

  • A fan or blower that’s louder than usual
  • Rough idling or high engine temperatures whenever you run the A/C
  • Dash controls that don’t work

What Some of Our Customers Are Saying

“Excellent service. Blake and Chris ‘bent over backwards” to assist in the repair to the A/C unit in our motorhomes.” – Austin

“Thank you so much for your help last week. You saved us a considerable amount of money, and we very much appreciate it and the great service you have given us over the years. We certainly recommend you every chance we get.– Velma and Tony


How Often Should Your Car’s AC System Be Checked?

There is no established industry standard for inspecting vehicle climate control systems, but it is advised to arrange an annual A/C inspection – which can be a part of your annual service. Alternatively, you can adhere to the maintenance schedule outlined in your vehicle manual.

Whichever option you choose, regular auto A/C servicing will provide you with the following advantages:

  • A vehicle that is more environmentally friendly, and
  • A more comfortable driving experience

Keep in mind that with the proliferation of computerized components in modern vehicles, DIY A/C repairs are no longer feasible. Due to the increased complexity of air conditioning systems compared to previous years, it is essential to seek the assistance of a certified auto A/C service technician.

If you would like to learn more about the recommended frequency of car air conditioner servicing or to schedule an appointment for you’re A/C auto repair, please contact our certified technicians at Searles Auto. Our auto shop takes pride in serving residents of the Greater Victoria region.
