Key Tips to Help Maximize Your Car’s AC Unit

Every car owner is privy to how much the AC system increases fuel consumption. While this is true, the summer heat or the winter chill will require you to depend more on your car’s AC. Is there a way to use the car’s AC while burning less gas?

Let the 3-D Automotive team prove why we’re the top company for auto AC repair in Chandler, AZ, with these nifty ways to help maximize the AC unit while burning less fuel.

Avoid Pre-Cooling or Pre-heating

The idea of pre-cooling or pre-heating may seem like a sound idea, but auto AC installation experts attest that it is tantamount to the unnecessary burning of gas. The vehicle can cool or heat to the desired temperature while in motion. On scorching days, it is easier to open the car windows for 10 to 20 seconds while driving to help cool the car faster. The former is a neat trick since the air inside the vehicle will always be hotter than outside.

Have a Clean Air Filter

A dirty air filter is a hindrance to proper air circulation. When carrying out auto AC maintenance, we ask our clients to get the air filter checked and cleaned too.

Always Have it Serviced by a Professional

AC maintenance should always be done by a professional with a reputation–the same with an auto AC replacement procedure. In most instances, poor work done by a novice technician may damage the car’s AC system further. A professional, on the other hand, is also likely to give the client tips on effectively using and managing the installed auto AC system to extend its lifespan.

Avoid Recirculating Air

Recirculating air keeps passengers in the front cool and fresh while leaving those in the back to suffer hot and stale air. Recirculating air may also interfere with an auto AC recharge. It is, therefore, better to have the whole car served with nicely cooled air.
