Posted on October 7, 2016It’s autumn. The leaves are turning picturesque yellows, oranges, and reds, and there’s occasional morning frost. The days aren’t as hot as they were just a few weeks ago, with the exception of the occasional warm one. Although your Acura’s air conditioning wasn’t performing all that well towards the end of the summer, you’re thinking you’ll wait until next year to get it looked at. That may not be the best idea…You see, your air conditioning isn’t just for blowing cold air through your vents. It’s a system that conditions the air in your car for ALL times of the year, not just summer. It does perform cooling actions, but it also draws moisture out of the cabin to clear your Acura’s windows. That becomes more important as the humidity rises in your vehicle. And all through the fall, winter, and spring, the humidity builds. Wet shoes, snow on your boots, and water vapor from your breath can make the windows fog up when you park as well as when you drive.
Why Bother with Air Conditioning Repairs Now?
Foggy windows are cute for kids in the backseat, drawing smiley faces with their fingertips. But it’s not fun or cute when you can barely see the road because your windows won’t clear up. It’s downright stressful, and it can be avoided by keeping your air conditioning fully functional no matter what time of year it may be. Air conditioning repairs can be expensive if they’re not covered by your warranty; there’s no question about that. But your air conditioning may not be broken per se. It could be a really simple fix like a disconnected wire, a broken A/C belt, or your refrigerant is low on charge. In fact, your A/C loses up to 5% efficiency every year, and needs to be recharged eventually even without a leak. So don’t delay your A/C repairs. Although you’re not worried about cooling off your cabin right now, your air conditioning can keep you safe on the roads by keeping your windows clear.If your Acura needs A/C repairs in Kansas City, trust the Acura repair professionals at Jay Wolfe Acura.
