You rely on your vehicle’s AC and heating system to keep you comfortable when you drive. The extremely hot summers in Georgia and South Carolina call for a working AC system so you can stay cool no matter where you go. You also need working heat to keep your warm when the cold months of winter strike. In order to maintain a comfortable cabin interior, you may need the help of AC or heating repair and service from C & C Automotive.
Auto AC Repair
The AC system in your vehicle cools, purifies, and circulates the air to keep you comfortable. The entire system works through several processes that require the use of refrigerants. This refrigerant is responsible for removing heat from the cabin of the vehicle and goes through a constant cycle of compression that works with the compressor drive belt. The compressor pumps this refrigerant through the system, converting hot gas into a liquid, then cooling it. Other important components include the condenser and evaporator, which also help to process the liquid refrigerant into a gas that comes through your vents as nice, cold air.
Auto Heater Repair
While your car’s cooling system removes heat from the engine, the heating system transfers this heat to your cabin area. Any excess heat from the engine is absorbed by coolant, which is a mixture of water and antifreeze. The coolant runs through hoses from the engine to the radiator and then expels some of that heat into the air. Your water pump pushes the coolant through the engine as well as your car’s cooling and heating systems. As coolant travels to the heater core in your dashboard, a fan directs the warm air into the cabin to keep you nice and warm.
