Automotive Tips from Jerry Lambert Automotive: Air Conditioning Inspection

Most auto manufacturers recommend an interval for an air conditioning system inspection. The inspection uncovers leaks, worn hoses and assesses the condition of the other components.Environmental laws in some around Salt Lake City require leaks to be repaired before refrigerant can be added. Also some parts manufacturers require other components to be replaced along with certain failed parts in order to maintain the new part warranty. This is because a given failure may be the result of another worn or damaged part that will, if not replaced, prematurely damage the new component.Jerry Lambert Automotive in Salt Lake City is fully equipped to restore your flow of cool air.Jerry Lambert Automotive398 E 3300 SSalt Lake City, Utah 84115801-466-8226

Automotive Tips from Jerry Lambert Automotive: Making Your A/C System Last Longer

Salt Lake City drivers know that if their air conditioning system isn’t making cool air like it used to, there is a problem. It may be as simple as adding more of the right kind of refrigerant.Your A/C requires special compressor oil, which circulates through the system along with the refrigerant, to lubricate and protect expensive components and keep seals and gaskets from drying out. If refrigerant has leaked out – so has the compressor oil. This oil needs to be replenished whenever refrigerant is added.An air conditioning inspection at Jerry Lambert Automotive will uncover any potential problems and identify any necessary repairs needed to get Salt Lake City drivers on the road to cool air once again.Give us a call.Jerry Lambert Automotive398 E 3300 SSalt Lake City, Utah 84115801-466-8226

Cool Breeze: Air Conditioning Service at Jerry Lambert Automotive in Salt Lake City

Most Utah auto owners know that their vehicles need regular preventive maintenance like changing the oil and filters, rotating the tires and refilling the washer fluid. But did you know that your air conditioning system needs routine maintenance as well? Taking care of your air conditioning system can extend its life and prevent costly repair bills.Why is it important for Salt Lake City area drivers to get routine maintenance on their air conditioning system? First, the refrigerant contains an added lubricant. As the refrigerant circulates through the air conditioning system, its parts are lubricated. This constant lubrication keeps the parts functioning well. But over time, this lubricant is used up, and without it, the parts will eventually seize up and fail.Salt Lake City folks should understand, however, that the air conditioner will continue to pump out cool air even without the lubricant, so you won't kno ... read more

Keep Your Cool in Salt Lake City: Air Conditioning Service

Most Salt Lake City drivers don't even think about their air conditioner. Now here's a tip for Salt Lake City vehicle owners: Run your air conditioner every so often during Utah winters. This circulates the lubricant to help keep the seals from drying out. The air conditioner actually removes some of the moisture in the air. So if you have trouble with fogging on your vehicle windshield during Utah winters or during a rain storm, running the A/C on the defrost setting should help. Now on some Salt Lake City cars you can't run the A/C at the same time as the defroster. Don't ask me why, but I suspect lawyers were involved.Also, air and water can get into the A/C system. That can reduce the efficiency of the system and also lead to corrosion that causes damage. Salt Lake City drivers should periodically purge the system and replace the refrigerant to remove the air and water.Utah driver ... read more

Air Conditioning Maintenance at Jerry Lambert Automotive in Salt Lake City

Warm weather or cold, Salt Lake City drivers still need to think about their vehicle's air conditioning. Most Salt Lake City people don't service their air conditioning until after it fails. At Jerry Lambert Automotive, we can advise you on your vehicle manufacturers preventive maintenance schedules for air conditioning service, just as we do for transmission service, oil changes and so on.

We see that a lot at Jerry Lambert Automotive in Salt Lake City.The refrigerant also contains oil that lubricates air conditioning components and keeps the seals resilient. Low refrigerant and lubricating oil means that the air conditioning parts will wear out prematurely, and all Salt Lake City vehicle owners know t ... read more

Salt Lake City Air Conditioning Service

Working up a sweat is a great thing to do in a gym around Salt Lake City, but not in your vehicle. When Salt Lake City residents' vehicle AC Systems have a problem, they'll often feel it right away. The question is, how long do you put up with it? You know, the old comfort versus cost dilemma. But a more comfortable drive around Utah has a lot of benefits, and keeping the AC System well maintained can help prevent repairs.A common cause of AC failure is water and air in the system. The system does not work as well with air in it. And water can cause rust that leads to damage of the A/C components. Also refrigerant, the stuff that makes the air cold, can leak out, reducing the efficiency of the system and making it work harder to try to cool the air. That is why periodically evacuating the air conditioning system and recharging it keeps the proper amount of clean refrigerant in the system for Salt Lake City residents, so it cools better and lasts longer.Salt Lake Cit ... read more
