heater ac conditioning v2The auto repair mechanics at Jefferson Auto Repair in West Orange, NJ understand the importance of maintaining a car’s heating & air conditioning systems. An air conditioner conditions the air by controlling the temperature and the moisture level also known as humidity. It also circulates and purifies the air within your vehicle. Maintaining your vehicle’s heating system is just as important. Hot engine coolant moves continuously through a small radiator usually referred to as a heater core. In front of the heater core, a fan sits to blow cold outside air over the fins. As this air travels over the heater core, it heats up and becomes the hot air that blows out your heater vents.

You may think to yourself that you are not going to plan on cranking up the heater in your vehicle for several months, so why bother maintaining it? Believe it or not, your vehicle’s heating system is mainly responsible for the cooling in your vehicle’s engine on hot days. In addition, the air conditioner system plays a vital role during the cold months as well. By ignoring these performance issues, this can lead to expensive repairs down the line. The staff at Jefferson Auto Repair in West Orange, NJ can evaluate your vehicle’s heating and air conditioning systems and diagnose it if there are any issues.

The auto repair mechanics at Jefferson Auto Repair in West Orange, NJ know that your vehicle’s heating system consists of several components:

• Blower fan
• Thermostat
• Heater core

There are three (3) important reasons to maintain your vehicle’s heating and air conditioning systems:

• Regular maintenance will help keep your heating system in good working order
• Maintaining the regular air conditioning system will help reduce the risk of compressor failure
• Heating and A/C systems help keep you and your family healthy

Belts and Hoses v2Our auto repair mechanics at Jefferson Auto Repair in West Orange, NJ understand the importance of belt and hose replacement. Belts control the engine’s crankshaft and camshaft. Hose move liquids and gasses throughout your vehicle. Belts and hoses are very commonly overlooked maintenance items and if not maintained, can leave you stranded on the road. Belts and hoses that are not well maintained can possibly cause engine failure, broken or ben valves, and possible piston and cylinder wall damage. Engines include belt accessories such as:

• Alternators
• Water Pumps
• A/C Pumps
• Air Pumps
• Power Steering

Hoses transport coolant, power steering fluid and fuel throughout your vehicle. Because hoses are made out of rubber, hoses are prone to dry rotting/fatigue. When the coolant is old, acid will build up in the fluid causing the hose to lose it’s strength resulting in bulges in your hose. This can lead to a large hose rupture that will render your vehicle not drivable.
