ABC’s & DEF’s of Automotive Air Conditioning

Ugh, its not blowing cold!

The days are getting longer and warmer, summer is coming! On a hot sweltering summer’s day, there’s nothing more frustrating than getting in a vehicle with a poorly performing A/C. Lack of air conditioning in a vehicle makes for a sweaty and uncomfortable ride. Keep you and your passengers comfortable and cool with a properly working air conditioner.

Is your car's air conditioner system blowing out hot air? Is there a lack of pressure when the air blows out or no air blowing out at all?

Getting your car air conditioner serviced at the first sign of trouble will save you both money and time. Let Star Auto Service department techs repair and service your vehicles air conditioning system.

Here are a few things that could be going wrong with your A/C.
