Air Conditioning Maintenance at BOCK AUTOMOTIVE in PEQUANNOCK

Warm weather or cold, PEQUANNOCK drivers still need to think about their vehicle's air conditioning. Most PEQUANNOCK people don't service their air conditioning until after it fails. At BOCK AUTOMOTIVE, 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.

Keep Your Cool in PEQUANNOCK: Air Conditioning Service

Most PEQUANNOCK drivers don't even think about their air conditioner. Now here's a tip for PEQUANNOCK vehicle owners: Run your air conditioner every so often during NJ winters. This circulates the lubricant to help keep the seals from drying out. The air conditioner actually removes some of the moisture in the air. So if you have trouble with fogging on your vehicle windshield during NJ winters or during a rain storm, running the A/C on the defrost setting should help. Now on some PEQUANNOCK cars you can't run the A/C at the same time as the defroster. Don't ask me why, but I suspect lawyers were involved.Also, air and water can get into the A/C system. That can reduce the efficiency of the system and also lead to corrosion that causes damage. PEQUANNOCK drivers should periodically purge the system and replace the refrigerant to remove the air and water.NJ drivers would be wise to le ... read more

PEQUANNOCK Air Conditioning Service

Working up a sweat is a great thing to do in a gym around PEQUANNOCK, but not in your vehicle. When PEQUANNOCK residents' vehicle AC Systems have a problem, they'll often feel it right away. The question is, how long do you put up with it? You know, the old comfort versus cost dilemma. But a more comfortable drive around NJ has a lot of benefits, and keeping the AC System well maintained can help prevent repairs.A common cause of AC failure is water and air in the system. 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. Also refrigerant, the stuff that makes the air cold, can leak out, reducing the efficiency of the system and making it work harder to try to cool the air. That is why periodically evacuating the air conditioning system and recharging it keeps the proper amount of clean refrigerant in the system for PEQUANNOCK residents, so it cools better and lasts longer.PEQUANNOCK drivers should a ... read more
