How to Protect Your AC System
One of the reasons thousands of vehicle owners experience auto AC problems is that they simply don't use it. Sure, they may use it in the spring and summer, but seldom is the system used in the winter, especially in conditions as frigid as Chicago. But it's because of this lack of usage that causes the system to fail. You use it, or you lose it, and we want to make sure that doesn't happen to you. So here's what you need to do in the winter to make sure it's working properly summer:
- Get It Going
- Full Blast
- Run the Defroster
Even in the winter, you need to get the AC moving. One of the best things you can do to keep the AC going is to use it, and it's important to do so at least once a week for 15 minutes. Doing so helps maintain the gas pressure within, which is critical to creating the cool air you need.
Along with running the AC system for 15 minutes, you also need to make sure it's running at full blast and its coldest setting. This, too, contributes to maintaining proper gas pressures, and it plays a big difference in whether your AC is functioning come spring and summer.
Also make sure you run the defrost mode for 10 - 15 minutes, as this can help clear out any excess moisture and ensure no mildew grows within.
