RUN YOUR VEHICLE A/C IN WINTER?

RUN YOUR VEHICLE A/C IN WINTER?

Most drivers wait for their air conditioning to fail before they have it serviced. That’s because motorist don’t really understand that automotive air conditioners need periodic service. Let me share some of the reasons why they fail.
First, like every machine, air conditioner parts need lubrication. The lubrication is actually mixed with the refrigerant (that’s what makes the air cool). So sometimes, even though the air conditioner is still making cool air, the oil that lubricates the parts has just been used up, and unlubricated parts can fail in all cars.
NOW HEARS A TIP FOR DRIVERS: You should run your air conditioner every so often during Ga. Winters. This will circulate the lubrication 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 windshield during Ga. Winters or during a rain storm, running the A/C on the defrost setting should help.
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. Drivers should periodically purge the system and replace the refrigerant to clear out the air and water.
So following the recommended service intervals in your owner’s manual can help prevent mechanical failure of your air conditioning system. You’re A/C system contains some expensive components and anything you can do to lengthen the life of your A/C is well worth it.
