Some of the newest heating and cooling systems, including separate driver and passenger side thermostats, extra vents for the rear passengers, and heated seats, are designed to keep every passenger individually comfortable for their ride. If your heating and cooling systems aren’t working the way that you’d like them to, what are some things that you can look for?
If you are having problems with your car’s heat, Silver Spring Automotive will first check the hoses. The next step would be to check the heater core (a small device that creates heat by diverting heated radiator fluid through the heater core, which disperses the heat in front of a fan, it then blows through the ductwork into the car’s cabin) to see if it needs to be replaced. You can check to see if you feel the air being pushed through the system. If it isn’t, then you may need a new fan installed. Our mechanics can take care of that for you here in Glendale.
Your air conditioning (A/C) system requires maintenance as well. If your car isn’t getting cool, bring it to Glendale, and we’ll check to make sure you have enough freon your vehicle. Another area to check is your thermostat. Over time, it can become stuck in place or completely fail. Silver Spring Automotive will easily be able to advise you of what the exact problem is.
If your exhaust system needs to be replaced, it may not perform as well as it should to cool your car. A clogged exhaust can cause a severe amount of overheating. This may be a more critical problem and will require a trip to see us at Silver Spring Automotive. Clogged vents are another simple fix. We’ll check the vents and vacuum them out. That may make a significant difference in the amount of air that is being delivered to passengers.
Keeping you comfortable with a working heating and cooling system is one of the most pleasurable parts of traveling in a car. Taking the time to ensure your car’s heat and air conditioning are working optimally can guarantee the best performance and comfort over the long term.
Please call us to make an appointment if you have any automotive needs. Please plan on dropping off your vehicle and not waiting at our location for it to be finished.
We would like to stay healthy so we can be here to serve you.
Thanks, The crew of Silver Spring Automotive.
