Vehicle Air Conditioning System
If your idea of air condition is rolling all the windows down and going fast enough to keep a breeze coming into the car and are in need of an A/C recharge or service, then look no further.
The air conditioning system in your car is a very diverse and multipurpose system. The job of the air conditioning system is to not only keep you, your passengers and pets cool, it also “conditions” the air in your car, in modern cars it regulates the temperature keeping the computer components cool, the A/C system even regulates and reduces the humidity present in your vehicle. It is important to keep you’re A/C system functioning properly.

Vehicle Heating System
How does the heater in your car work you ask? The heat that you feel when the heater is on is actually generated by the heat from the engine. This heat moves from the car’s radiator to the heater core. The car’s heater core is where the hot engine fluid (referred to ironically as coolant) flows in and out of and is controlled by the heater control valve. Then an electric fan blows air through the core distributing this heat into the cabin of the vehicle through the vents.
If you are having trouble regulating your car’s heat you might need to check the coolant levels. Here at McCabe we can refill your engine coolant which is essential to prevent a car from overheating.
Did you know?
If you are ever driving in a car and it begins to overheat, you should pull over immediately. If you drive while your car is overheating you risk damaging your radiator or even worse your engine. If there is no where to pull over safely, then turn your heater all the way up on the feat or feat/vent setting. This way some of the hot air will be able to escape from the radiator, buying you a short amount of time to get somewhere safe.
