Don't Be Stuck in the Heat This Summer!

It is finally summer in Utah!  It seems like the rainy days changed overnight to the heat of summer.  You may have turned the a/c on in your house and in your car to stay for the next few months.

Did you know that your air conditioning is just a part of a bigger system in your car called the HVAC system?  The HVAC system includes heating, ventilating and air conditioning.  This system helps you be more comfortable as you drive around town, or take long trips.

You've all been in the car after it's been sitting for a couple of hours in the sun.  It's hot, stifling, and even hard to breathe as you sit and wait for the air conditioning to overpower the unimaginable heat.  You don't want to be stuck in a car like that for 5 minutes, let alone all summer.

You may wonder what signs you should look for if your air conditioner is not working properly.  One concern you may have is a squeaky belt.  Perhaps the most obvious sign is the air coming from the vents isn't very cold, and you are feeling pretty hot.

If your a/c seems to be struggling to keep up with the warm weather, bring it on over to Jake's and we'll take a look at it.  Generally our technicians will perform some pressure checks and look for leaks to begin with.  They may need to recharge the refrigerant. Either way, it's important to have an experienced technician to check the a/c system over.  You want to make sure you and your loved ones are comfortable this summer, so don't waste any time, and give Jake's a call.
