How Often Should I Get My Car A/C Serviced?

Get your car’s air conditioner and heater inspected and serviced at least once a year. A regular annual maintenance schedule allows you to address any small issues — from low coolant levels to rattling fans — before they grow into expensive major problems.

Advanced Automotive recommends you book your annual A/C appointment for Spring or Fall. Summer and Winter put a lot of strain on the cooling and heating system. Get it serviced before temperatures rise or plummet and you can stay comfortable, confident, and safe on the road.

Additionally, your A/C loses roughly 10-15% of its refrigerant every year. The system relies on constant coolant levels, so you must get the refrigerant recharged regularly. Check your owner’s manual for the recommended service intervals, but in general, you need a refrigerant recharge every 1-2 years.


7 Signs Your A/C and Heating System Needs Service

An optimally-functioning A/C and heating system does more than keep you comfortable. It’s also vital for your safety. A steady temperature improves your concentration, while in the winter, you need heating to properly defrost your windshield and windows.

This is why you must bring your car in for maintenance immediately if you notice something wrong with your A/C or heating. Keep an eye out for these telltale signs that your A/C needs urgent service.

  1. The Air Isn’t the Right Temperature:

    Something is obviously wrong if the A/C doesn’t blow cold air or the heater doesn’t warm your car. A poorly or non-functioning system can be the result of any number of problems. Bring your vehicle to Advanced Automotive and we’ll figure it out.

  2. Mildew Smell or Bad Odors:

    An unpleasant stench wafting from your vents could be caused by a leak or clogged A/C lines. Don’t try to mask the smell with air fresheners and get your system checked — breathing in mildew can endanger your health.

  3. Loud Noises:

    Any rattling, clacking, or other noise could indicate dirt contamination, broken fans, a failing compressor, or many other problems. Let Advanced Automotive repair and silence your A/C system.

  4. Damp Air:

    Summers in Chantilly and Warrenton are humid enough — your A/C shouldn’t add to the problem. If the air coming from your vents feels damp, bring your car in and we’ll flush the system to fix the problem.

  5. Water Inside Your Car:

    Mysterious water puddles on your floorboards are a sign of leaking or overflowing A/C lines. The water can cause mildew and rust problems, so you should get it fixed promptly.

  6. Weak Airflow:

    Poor airflow from your vents is a clear sign that your A/C and heating system is failing. Many issues could cause this symptom, so it’s best to let our professional technicians identify the root cause.

  7. The A/C Works Only When Driving:

    Your A/C and heating are more effective while driving, but they should still work even when stopped. If you get cool or hot air only when moving, your fans are likely busted and will need replacement.

Don’t delay getting service if you notice any of these problems. Book an appointment at Advanced Automotive and we’ll fix your A/C.
