A Cold Day in Centennial ? Air Conditioning Service at Davis Automotive Repair

Most Centennial drivers worry about a breakdown or a tire blowout on a busy Colorado highway, but don't worry too much about failure of their air conditioning system. A breakdown on the side of the road can be a miserable and dangerous affair during Centennial rush hour, but so can a long ride in a hot vehicle.A lot of Centennial drivers judge their vehicles' air conditioning systems as “non-essential” and so may neglect them in favor of repairs and maintenance that keep the vehicle running. But preventive maintenance of an air conditioning system is simple and inexpensive, while auto a/c repair can be very expensive.Centennial drivers should have the refrigerant in their air conditioning system checked regularly to ensure it is adequate and clean. Air conditioning systems often fail because air and water have contaminated the refrigerant. Air reduces the efficiency o ... read more

Automotive Tips from Davis Automotive Repair: 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 Centennial 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.Davis Automotive Repair in Centennial is fully equipped to restore your flow of cool air.Davis Automotive Repair6867 South Emporia StreetCentennial, Colorado 80112303-790-4789  

Keep Your Cool in Centennial: Air Conditioning Service

Most Centennial drivers don't even think about their air conditioner. Now here's a tip for Centennial vehicle owners: Run your air conditioner every so often during Colorado winters. This circulates the lubricant to help keep the seals from drying out. The air conditioner actually removes some of the moisture in the air. So if you have trouble with fogging on your vehicle windshield during Colorado winters or during a rain storm, running the A/C on the defrost setting should help. Now on some Centennial cars you can't run the A/C at the same time as the defroster. Don't ask me why, but I suspect lawyers were involved.Also, air and water can get into the A/C system. That can reduce the efficiency of the system and also lead to corrosion that causes damage. Centennial drivers should periodically purge the system and replace the refrigerant to remove the air and water.Colorado drivers wo ... read more

Air Conditioning Maintenance at Davis Automotive Repair in Centennial

Warm weather or cold, Centennial drivers still need to think about their vehicle's air conditioning. Most Centennial people don't service their air conditioning until after it fails. At Davis Automotive Repair, we can advise you on your vehicle manufacturers preventive maintenance schedules for air conditioning service, just as we do for transmission service, oil changes and so on. Maintaining your air conditioning system means that you always have enough refrigerant to properly do the job. Small leaks in the vehicle's air conditioning system allow the refrigerant to escape and the system can't cool the air as well. We see that a lot at Davis Automotive Repair in Centennial.The refrigerant also contains oil that lubricates air conditioning components and keeps the seals resilient. Low refrigerant and lubricating oil means that the air conditioning parts will wear out prematurely, and all Centennial vehicle owners know that air conditioni ... read more

Centennial Air Conditioning Service

Working up a sweat is a great thing to do in a gym around Centennial, but not in your vehicle. When Centennial 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 Colorado 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 Centennial residents, so it cools better and lasts longer.Centennial drivers sh ... read more
