It is one of those 90-plus-degree days, hot, hazy and humid. Isn't it great to be able to get in your vehicle and enjoy the comfort your air conditioning system provides for you and your passengers?
The Mobile Air Conditioning Society Worldwide wants all car owners to understand how their vehicle's air conditioning system works, be able to recognize problems and optimize performance so they can enjoy maximum comfort while driving.
To achieve the quickest interior cool-down:
This helps the hot interior air escape quickly. When you first turn the A/C on, set the controls to "MAX" and/or "REC," and use highest blower speed. This moves the greatest volume of air, re-circulates cooling air for even faster cool-down, and prevents hot outside air from entering. As soon as you are comfortable, switch the system to "NORM" or "OUTSIDE," and select a lower fan speed. The lower the blower speed, the colder the air from the system.
The Mobile Air Conditioning Society advises all consumers to take their vehicle air conditioning problems to a professional service facility that is certified in proper refrigerant recovery, recycling and recharging methods.
