Automotive Tips from Tuffy Portage: Air Conditioning – Common Problem
Posted in Cabin Air Filter on January 04, 2018
Your auto air conditioning system cools and conditions the air in your passenger compartment when you are driving around Portage. It also removes moisture from the air to keep your windows from fogging up.
A common A/C problem for Portage drivers that visit Tuffy Portage 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 Tuffy Portage service advisor for an air conditioning system inspection to make sure everything is up to spec.
