Is your vehicle road trip worthy? Help your car stay cool this summer! – Salmon Arm Observer

The hot summer months are fast approaching and your vehicle’s air conditioning system will soon be put to the test.

Many of us know what it’s like to jump into a stuffy car and crank up the air conditioning for relief, only to find ourselves hit with more hot air. Driving your car in the summer heat with an air conditioner that isn’t blowing cold is no fun!

The solution? Give your system a summer checkup before the hot weather hits!

“Most people think an air conditioning system contains water, but it doesn’t, it contains an inert gas,” says Allan Koehl, service manager at Canadian Tire Salmon Arm. “The misconception is that when your system isn’t working it’s because it’s evaporated, but it can’t – it’s a closed system.”

Whether you’re driving a new vehicle or a vintage vehicle, maintaining regular preventative maintenance is essential to keeping your vehicle in top condition – and that includes your air conditioning system.

“When your system is blowing hot, the first thing we do is check for leaks. Nine times out of 10 there’s a small or big leak, either in the hard lines or in the compressor,” says Koehl.

Using up-to-date equipment, their expert, licensed technicians will run tests to make sure your air conditioning system is working properly, then flush gas and oil from the system, check and repair leaks, and recharge the system. system.

So rather than leaving your vehicle’s air conditioning system to worry about until it’s too late, leave it to the experts at Canadian Tire Salmon Arm and stay cool on your cruise this summer.

“You can trust our team of certified technicians to do work you can count on for top-notch service,” says Koehl.
