May 31st, 2017 by

Summer is here – technically it doesn’t start until June 21, but temperatures in Central Florida speak otherwise. If there was ever a horrible time to have your car’s air conditioning system fail you, it would be now. Toyota of Orlando is here to help! We have a list of signs that you may need auto A/C repair, as well as certified Toyota techs on deck who can get things handled for you if you find yourself identifying a lot of these signs in your own car. Let’s take a closer look!

Summer Car Care Tips

What are some signs that you need to schedule Orlando auto A/C repair? Here are a few our auto service techs recommend you be on the lookout for:

  • You don’t have air conditioning. If you go to turn your air on after starting your vehicle and don’t feel any air coming out of the vents,  you have a problem. You also have an issue if you feel warm or hot air coming out of your vents for more than a minute or two after you start your car. It may be something as simple as low refrigerant levels or a burnt out fan, but it still warrants scheduling auto A/C repair.
  • You smell something funny when you turn on the air. This can indicate mold growing in the vents and in the A/C system, which you’ll need to have professionally cleaned. Luckily, the Toyota of Orlando service center can take care of it for you and get you back out on the road in no time!
  •  You hear odd noises. If you hear rattling or banging noises when you turn on the A/C, you could have multiple problems. It’s hard to pinpoint the exact cause just from the noise, so you’ll want to schedule auto repairs at Toyota of Orlando to handle the problem.
  • You’ve got leaks. Whether you find water inside your car (because it’s not draining out properly) or you find leaks under your car, it can indicate a problem with your car air conditioning system.  You’ll want to have it looked at to determine the source of the leak and put it to a stop!

However, you may not need major repairs (which means a break for your wallet), so don’t panic just yet. At our service center, we offer tons of affordable solutions to get you back out on the road with ice-cold air again!

Should you bring your car in for a routine A/C inspection at Toyota of Orlando?

Affordable Car Repair

Should you be scheduling an inspection routinely for your A/C like you do with your brakes? Not necessarily – after all, if you visit our Toyota service center, we’ll conduct a free multi-point inspection every time you come through the doors. However, the only other time you should need to schedule an inspection of your car’s air conditioning system is if any of the above signs present themselves. Otherwise, if you’re staying cool and everything is running normally, you’re good to go!
