Cool Breeze: Air Conditioning Service at AASTRO Transmission & Auto Repair in Tucson

Posted September 8, 2019 10:21 AM


Most AZ auto owners know that their vehicles need regular preventive maintenance like changing the oil and filters, rotating the tires and refilling the washer fluid. But did you know that your air conditioning system needs routine maintenance as well? Taking care of your air conditioning system can extend its life and prevent costly repair bills.

Why is it important for Tucson area drivers to get routine maintenance on their air conditioning system? First, the refrigerant contains an added lubricant. As the refrigerant circulates through the air conditioning system, its parts are lubricated. This constant lubrication keeps the parts functioning well. But over time, this lubricant is used up, and without it, the parts will eventually seize up and fail.

Tucson folks should understand, however, that the air conditioner will continue to pump out cool air even without the lubricant, so you won't know the system is sick until it actually dies. So good vehicle care includes regularly checking the refrigerant and lubricant in your vehicle air conditioning system and replacing it if needed.

The second reason your air conditioning system needs preventive maintenance is that air and water can get into the system. Air, water and the contaminants they contain will reduce the efficiency of the air conditioning system and can cause corrosion of the system's parts. Keeping the air conditioning system clean is a practice that will extend its life and keep you from losing your cool on hot Tucson days.

How often should you get a routine car air conditioner inspection? It varies from vehicle to vehicle. Check your owner's manual for the vehicle manufacturer's recommendation.

Here's a good piece of advice from AASTRO Transmission & Auto Repair for AZ vehicle owners that will extend the life of their air conditioning systems: You should run your air conditioner in the winter every once in a while. This circulates the refrigerant, which lubricates the seals. That way, they won't dry out during cold Tucson weather.

Testimonials

, 05/02/2022
We have a 2018 F150 with the new 10 speed transmission, 150,000 miles and it was starting to struggle a bit towing a trailer. We could not find a shop willing to rebuild it, either due to no experience with this transmission or possible lack of available parts. After a couple months we found a transmission with very low miles at a scrap yard. Buying it is a risky move but we had no other option, Aastro was the only one willing to swap it for me, normally shops wont do this as they don't want to be liable for YOUR part. I had a warranty on the transmission so I told them I would not hold Aastro liable if it didn't work and would pay for the removal again. They did the job which included reprogramming modules and it was perfect, truck feels like it did when it was new. We will now send our vehicles to Aastro when the time arises.
