Cayenne here and working up a sweat is a great thing when you running around the yard as I do or if you go to a gym around Los Altos, but not in your vehicle. So today we will sweat it out and bark about Air Conditioning Service.
When Los Altos 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 CA 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. 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 Los Altos residents, so it cools better and lasts longer.
Los Altos drivers should also run the air conditioner regularly, even in the winter, so that it lubricates itself and keeps the seals from drying out. The seals can crack and that leads to leaks. Your vehicle's owner's manual will have recommendations for how often to service your air conditioner. Some service centers also have this information as part of their computer databases. Your friendly and knowledgeable Allied Auto Works service advisor's Travis or Matt can give you more information.
