Automotive Tips from Gurr Auto: Air Conditioning ? Common Problem

Your auto air conditioning system cools and conditions the air in your passenger compartment when you are driving around St. Thomas. It also removes moisture from the air to keep your windows from fogging up.A common A/C problem for St. Thomas drivers that visit Gurr Auto is contaminated refrigerant (the gas that cools the air). The inside of the A/C hoses deteriorates over time and tiny fragments of rubber clog passages. This makes the system less efficient and overworks various components.Leaks can develop at seals and gaskets and may reduce the amount of refrigerant, causing the system to work too hard to compensate. Dirty components can have the same consequences.Ask your Gurr Auto service advisor for an air conditioning system inspection to make sure everything is up to spec.Gurr Auto845 Talbot StreetSt. Thomas, Ontario N5P 2A8519.637.9861http://gurrauto.com/

Automotive Tips from Gurr Auto: Air Conditioning Inspection

Most auto manufacturers recommend an interval for an air conditioning system inspection. The inspection uncovers leaks, worn hoses and assesses the condition of the other components.Environmental laws in some around St. Thomas require leaks to be repaired before refrigerant can be added. Also some parts manufacturers require other components to be replaced along with certain failed parts in order to maintain the new part warranty. This is because a given failure may be the result of another worn or damaged part that will, if not replaced, prematurely damage the new component.Gurr Auto in St. Thomas is fully equipped to restore your flow of cool air.Gurr Auto845 Talbot StreetSt. Thomas, Ontario N5P 2A8519.637.9861http://gurrauto.com/

St. Thomas Air Conditioning Service

Working up a sweat is a great thing to do in a gym around St. Thomas, but not in your vehicle. When St. Thomas 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 Ontario 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. And 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 St. Thomas residents, so it cools better and lasts longer.St. Thomas drivers sho ... read more

Most Ontario 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 St. Thomas 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.St. Thomas folks should understand, however, that the air conditioner will continue to pump out cool air even without the lubricant, so you won't know th ... read more
