Here are a few more tips on keeping your ride summer-ready:
- It’s nice and cool out now and you might feel like riding with the windows down is preferable to running the A/C, but be sure to run it for at least ten minutes once a week. This routine car maintenance step can save you from dealing with having issues with your air compressor, which keeps your air conditioning running at maximum capacity when you need it.
- Another way to perform your own Orlando car maintenance for your ride’s A/C is to run the defroster once a week, just for a few minutes. This will help to combat any mildew growing inside the system or vents (ew), as well as get rid of excess moisture that can cause funky smells to drift into your cabin when you run the air conditioning!
- You should also make sure you stay on top of air conditioning service – consider it a part of your routine car maintenance in Orlando – and be sure to get a recharge when necessary. What’s a recharge? Basically, your A/C needs refrigerant in order to blast out that icy air you love so much in the summer. If you notice your ride is pumping out warmer air than normal or the A/C just isn’t working properly, you may have a refrigerant leak. It’s easily fixed – our Toyota Service Center can handle it for you – but if you leave it for too long, it can actually cause issues with the air compressor, which can mean a more costly repair!
