Heating & Air Conditioning Facts & Information

Your vehicle’s HVAC system is important not only for comfort, but for defrosting and defogging windows, uninterrupted flow of engine coolant, and proper operation of belts which drive your alternator, power steering, and water pump. Heating and cooling issues come in a variety of shapes and sizes depending on the type of car or truck you drive and the make or model of that vehicle, but Cain & Sons' Automotive in Glen Rock, PA can handle them all.

Your heat and A/C system are complicated, to say the least, requiring the right tools, and constant training to keep up-to-date on the new information and diagnostic tools required to take care of your specific system.  Our technicians at Cain & Sons' Automotive have experience on all makes and models and can quickly find and solve any issue you might have with your heat and A/C system should it be due to an issue with your compressors, high-pressure lines, special gasses, condensers, actuators, electronic and vacuum signals, or multiple other aspects of your car or truck.  Your air conditioning system has to work in harmony to effectively cool your vehicle infrastructure and when needed heat the inside of your vehicle for your comfort.  The longer an A/C system remains broken the more problems it will develop, so it’s a good idea to have it serviced regularly.

We have found that the heating systems are generally far more reliable than A/C since they primarily operate on circulating engine coolant.  However, if you’re having heating issues, the consequences are usually far greater if neglected.  Lack of defrosting and defogging ability is not just inconvenient but also extremely unsafe.  A clogged heater core can cause engine overheating, and a failed heater core will leak coolant into your vehicle, damaging other components. If your heater is misbehaving, have it inspected immediately.  Often a simple coolant flush will correct the issue if we can catch it quickly.

COOLING SYSTEMS

Staying up to date with your automobile's cooling system upkeep may be difficult. Thankfully our staff of licensed mechanics specialize in auto repair in Glen Rock, PA and know ways to get your car in proper working order.

Cooling Systems minimize heat temperatures to assist all additional engine components to work effectively.

Inside your engine, spark plugs ignite the gas within the engine cylinders to generate small explosions that move your automobile down the road. These small explosions generate burning temperatures that may damage your engine, if not controlled. With most cooling systems, a liquid coolant is sent through passages in the engine and takes in the heat given off by the engine. When it relocates down the rubber tubes, it is cooled by the air coming through the vehicle's grill. Many vital parts enter a cooling system, and we can check all of them.

Glen Rock, PA Automotive Cooling System Upkeep & Maintenance

Throughout cooling system upkeep your technician will certainly check:

    - Hoses and belts for indicators of holes or cracks
    - Your fluid level and condition
    - Signs of deterioration and rust
    - Deposit or fluids that could show signs of damages or leaks
    - If all components, fans, and the thermostat are functioning correctly

When driving in extremely cold temperatures, you will certainly see to it you have appropriate levels of antifreeze in your car to stay clear of freezing your liquid coolants and other fluids in your engine.

Eventually, your automobile's cooling system will develop scale deposits that restrict coolant circulation and will require your cooling system to be flushed. Having a correctly educated specialist carry out normal examinations will guarantee your car remains effectively cooled and working for many years to come. To keep your car cooling system in proper working order it is important to remember the following:

    - Disregarding your cooling system could result in major damage as well as complete engine failure
    - Your antifreeze and coolant system must be flushed every 30,000 to 50,000 miles or every 2 years
    - Your coolant levels should be inspected during every oil change

AC & HEAT REPAIR

Heating and A/C systems could wear over time with use, appropriate routine maintenance can maintain your automobile cabin temperature for the comfort of you and your passengers. Cain and Sons’ Automotive offers quality Glen Rock, PA auto repair services and Glen Rock, PA A/C repair.

What they do: Heating and A/C systems function to keep your vehicle cabin warm in the winter and cool in the summer. The air conditioning system additionally offers a dual function of working your defrost in the winter season. Heating systems are comprised of a heating unit core that acts like a small radiator behind the dash, fan, and hoses that operate the warmth from the engine to the center. Air conditioning systems work similarly, by delivering coolant to the fan to blow cool air in the cabin. Unlike residence heating and cooling systems, your heater and A/C don't completely operate off electric parts, however, they make use of the engine's heat energy and the engine's cooling down capacities to alter the temperature.

Why service is essential: Heating and A/C systems could wear out gradually with usage, hose pipes can obstruct and leak if not serviced, leading to inadequate performance or a shortage of heating and cooling capabilities.
