Keeping Your Vehicle’s AC Mighty During the Summer

Summer is officially on its way in. Schools are letting out, vacations are set, holidays are being celebrated, and travelers are hitting America’s highways and byways in their cars and RV’s. But summer also means heat, and depending on geographic locations, treks through and to many U.S. destinations will involve extreme summertime temperatures. Don’t get stuck on the road with a malfunctioning air conditioner!

Mighty Auto Parts, an honored American company serving the multi-billion dollar automotive aftermarket for more than fifty years, wants American motorists to stay safe and cool during this season of fun in the scorching sun. To ensure optimized operability that will keep occupants comfortable during the long days of summer, Mighty Auto Parts recommends that drivers have their car’s HVAC systems inspected annually by a trained service technician.

  • Check cabin air filter to ensure proper air flow
  • Check the compressor drive belt for tension, cracks and damage
  • Check pressures to test operation, refrigerant charge, and outlet temperatures
  • Perform a leak inspection of hoses, lines, seals and other components
  • Perform a leak test to find the source when refrigerant levels are low
  • Check for refrigerant cross-contamination

    Refrigerant level and air filter are two most important components for your vehicle’s AC to function properly. Good Ac is necessary for summers.

    I have a quick question for you. I heard vertical tank air compressors are better than horizontal tank compressors. Is that true? From what I’ve been told the vertical tanks can hold more air. I really appreciate the help!
