Automotive Tips from The Muffler Doctor: Air Conditioning ? Common Problem

Your auto air conditioning system cools and conditions the air in your passenger compartment when you are driving around KANSAS CITY. It also removes moisture from the air to keep your windows from fogging up.A common A/C problem for KANSAS CITY drivers that visit The Muffler Doctor 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 The Muffler Doctor service advisor for an air conditioning system inspection to make sure everything is up to spec.The Muffler Doctor7915 TROOST AVEKANSAS CITY, MO 64131816-444-7100http://www.mdautorepairkc.com

The system does not work as well with air in it. And water can cause rust that leads to damage of the A/C components.

That is why periodically evacuating the air conditioning system and recharging it keeps the proper amount of clean refrigerant in the system for KANSAS CITY residents, so it cools better and lasts longer.KANSAS CITY drivers shou ... read more

Air Conditioning Maintenance at The Muffler Doctor in KANSAS CITY

Warm weather or cold, KANSAS CITY drivers still need to think about their vehicle's air conditioning. Most KANSAS CITY people don't service their air conditioning until after it fails. At The Muffler Doctor, we can advise you on your vehicle manufacturers preventive maintenance schedules for air conditioning service, just as we do for transmission service, oil changes and so on.
