A Cold Day in Du Quoin ? Air Conditioning Service at McPherson Automotive

Posted July 7, 2019 12:49 PM


Most Du Quoin drivers worry about a breakdown or a tire blowout on a busy IL highway, but don't worry too much about failure of their air conditioning system. A breakdown on the side of the road can be a miserable and dangerous affair during Du Quoin rush hour, but so can a long ride in a hot vehicle.

A lot of Du Quoin drivers judge their vehicles' air conditioning systems as “non-essential” and so may neglect them in favor of repairs and maintenance that keep the vehicle running. But preventive maintenance of an air conditioning system is simple and inexpensive, while auto a/c repair can be very expensive.

Du Quoin drivers should have the refrigerant in their air conditioning system checked regularly to ensure it is adequate and clean. Air conditioning systems often fail because air and water have contaminated the refrigerant. Air reduces the efficiency of the refrigerant, and water can cause rusting of the system's components. If your refrigerant is contaminated, the system should be evacuated and recharged. This will actually extend the life of your air conditioning system, preventing repairs, and keep it at peak performance.

At McPherson Automotive, we advise our Du Quoin customers to run their air conditioner periodically in the winter. This will keep the seals from drying out and cracking, saving them the inconvenience of this relatively minor repair.

Check with your vehicle owner's manual or with your friendly service advisor at McPherson Automotive for information about how often your vehicle air conditioning system should be serviced.
