How’s Your AC Coping?

The summer sun can be brutal on everything it touches in Ocala-- your skin, your house, your lawn, and your car. August is the muggiest month, as we stroll into the 90s and stay there. It's important to prepare for the summer-- know where to park, when to go out, how to keep the sun from making the heat worse and worse before autumn comes. That's why we want to know: how is your vehicle faring in these dog days of summer?

 

If you're like most people, your car's air conditioning is one of the first things you think about when you drive in the summertime. Air conditioning has become a standard feature in cars over the past few decades, and for good reason. It's a lifesaver on hot days, and can make a long drive in the Florida heat much more bearable.

 

 

But even the best air conditioners can have trouble keeping up in extreme heat. If your car's AC isn't keeping you as cool as it used to, there are a few things you can check before taking it into the shop.

 

First, make sure the AC is turned on. It sounds like a no-brainer, but you'd be surprised how many people forget to turn on their AC before cranking up the temperature control. 

 

Second, check your car's air filter. A clogged air filter can restrict airflow and make it harder for your AC to do its job. 

 

If neither of those things seem to be the problem, it's time to bring your car into Pals Ocala Auto Repair for a checkup. Our AC experts will take a look at your system and let you know what needs to be done to get you cool and comfortable again.

 

Don't suffer in the summer heat-- come see us at Pals Ocala Auto Repair! We'll have you driving in comfort in no time. What are some other ways you prepare your car for summer? Let us know in the comments below! Thanks for reading! If you're looking for a charity to partner with, we hope you’ll consider volunteering or donating to our partners at the Public Education System of Marion County this month, with school restarting! Visit Pals Ocala Auto Repair at 2821 SW College Road, Ocala, FL, 34474, and schedule an appointment online to keep your vehicle safe on the road!
