San Diego boasts one of the best climates in the world. However, most of us still rely on our vehicle air conditioning during the summer, especially when traveling away from the coast to the hotter cities. Unlike your refrigerator, your vehicle can often require air conditioning service to maintain the appropriate level of coolness.
Benefits of Air Conditioning Service
Air conditioning service can assure that your A/C is functioning optimally. Not only will this help it last longer, it will provide you and your passengers with greater comfort.
Cleaning and disinfecting your A/C system also has health benefits! Why? Microorganisms can collect in your car A/C system and cause health and respiratory problems. Sometimes you can smell a bad odor, but often there is no odor from the bacteria, mold or mold spores that might accumulate in your system. Therefore, we suggest having your A/C inspected every 1-2 years, especially if you keep it turned off for long periods of time like over the winter.
