Heating and Cooling Services
The Importance of Heating & Cooling Care
Your car’s heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems are made of complex interconnecting components. When this system is working properly, it’s easy to ignore it — but when something has gone wrong, the unpleasant temperatures inside your car’s cabin will get your attention.
A poorly functioning HVAC system not only makes for an uncomfortable driving experience, it also can be a safety risk. Cars overheat very quickly in the summer and can become a danger to anyone inside, especially the elderly, children and pets. In the winter, an unheated cabin is also cause for concern. Keeping your HVAC system properly maintained will ensure that everyone who spends time in your vehicle stays comfortable and safe.
While the system is interconnected, the heating and cooling components work separately. Your A/C system includes a compressor, condenser, radiator fan, dryer, expansion valve, evaporator and refrigerant. The heating system includes a radiator, blower fan, thermostat, heater core and hoses. Each system draws air from outside of the vehicle and then heats or cools it.
Heating and Cooling System Issues
When any of the parts of your HVAC system start to degrade, the system will stop performing correctly. While wear and tear can eventually cause parts to need replacement, the most common issues with heating and cooling systems are caused by leaks. In places like Ohio, which have hot summers and cold winters, hoses and seals are especially vulnerable to damage. Be on the lookout for these signs that you need heating and cooling services:
- Poor airflow
- Inconsistent temperature
- Growling, squealing or grinding noises
- An overheating engine
If you’ve experienced any of these symptoms — or even more obvious ones, like hot air blowing when the A/C is on — don’t wait to take your car in for inspection. Boyce Auto Repair offers comprehensive heating and cooling services for your vehicle, including:
- Inspection of the vehicle’s radiator and coolant system
- Regular coolant flushes
- Inspection and repairs or replacements of the following:
