Keeping Cool in the Heat of a Phoenix Summer

Yes…the heat is on once again and a lot of people are experiencing the summertime blues already because their air conditioning is failing in their cars.  Many assume this is going to cost big bucks! This isn’t always the case.  Don’t just assume it will be bad news and certainly don’t suffer the heat needlessly. 

When checking out your air conditioning system our technicians at Fairway Auto Repair will look for certain things:

  1. Is it low in refrigerant?
  2. Is the compressor engaged?
  3. Is the motor that controls the blend air door working properly?

Overheating
Summertime in Phoenix means a lot of cars overheat. It isn’t an unusual sight to see an overheated vehicle sitting alongside the road with steam pouring from underneath the hood on a hot day!  Visit our website at www.fairwayautorepair.com to find out what to do should you find yourself in this situation. The best way to handle this situation is not to let it happen. Preventive maintenance is always so much better than the hassle of repair.  If it does happen, however, give us call immediately and we will do our best to save your engine from permanent damage.

Batteries
Phoenix’s summer heat is very hard on batteries.  We can check this out quickly and let you know just how healthy your battery is.

Belts, wiper blades, hoses and tires
Components that have rubber in their makeup can get brittle and crack, fray or burst in the heat.  These need to be checked out to make sure they are performing at peak efficiency.

Fairway Auto Repair is here to help you and your car keep cool in Phoenix this summer!
