Why A/C & Heating Is So Important

We all want to be comfortable, whether we’re commuting to work, running errands, or taking a road trip. Certain times of the year are ideal for having your car’s windows down, but many times the weather is too hot or cold to do so. Tire Pirates is here to ensure you have a functioning heater and air conditioner to keep you warm or cool inside your vehicle. Even if your A/C system seems to be functioning fine, you still need to schedule regular maintenance to keep the system working its best. Some drivers don’t realize that their car’s heating system is responsible for cooling the engine on hot days and that the A/C system is a critical component of your vehicle even during the colder winter months in Calgary. Learn more about these two reasons why your car’s heat and A/C are so important:

  • Keeping Your Engine Cool – Your vehicle’s cooling system is directly related to its heating system. If you don’t have a heating system that’s functioning correctly, your engine might overheat on a hot summer’s day. In some cases, your engine could break down completely.
  • Defrosting Windshields – We all know about those cold Calgary mornings where you can see your breath, but your windshield has a layer of frost on it. Your air conditioning system helps to defrost and defog your windshield by pulling humidity out of the air. You may need to have your A/C system recharged to make sure you can see out of your windshield.

The Benefits of A/C & Heating Repair & Maintenance

It’s easy to neglect your car’s heating and air conditioning systems, but doing so is not recommended. Check out the following benefits of keeping these systems working correctly with maintenance and repair services from Tire Pirates:

  • Keeps Your System in Good Working Order – Your car’s heating system is made up of many components, including the thermostat, blower fan, and heater core. These components can be challenging to reach, and significant repairs can take days if minor issues are not addressed right away. Our mechanics can check your vehicle’s hoses and belts and ensure the antifreeze is clean and filled.
  • Reduces Risk of Compressor Failure – Your vehicle’s compressor is one of the most critical components of the air conditioning system. It’s also the most expensive part to have repaired or replaced. With regular maintenance, the risk of premature compressor failure is reduced. The most common A/C system problems involve minor issues that can be easy to deal with when caught early on. Regular A/C maintenance can also improve your vehicle’s fuel efficiency.
  • Helps Keep You Healthy – Our mechanics will check your car’s cabin air filter and replace it if needed. These filters trap pollen, dust, bacteria, and exhaust fumes before they come through your vents and pollutes the air you breathe. Dirty or clogged filters can cause headaches, allergic reactions, or breathing problems.
