Even if you never miss an oil change, it’s easy to forget your vehicle’s air conditioner. Keep your cool, year round, with our A/C system services. Don’t wait for the next heat wave!

The Basics

The ABCs of A/C

Your comfort depends on periodic inspection and maintenance of your car or truck’s A/C system, including these components:

Engine Compartment

  • Compressor – is a pump that draws in refrigerant, compresses this gas, and forces it into the condenser.
  • Condenser – is a small radiator that causes the refrigerant gas to cool and condense into a liquid.
  • Receiver-Dryer – removes any water that gets into the system, preventing ice crystals from forming.
  • Thermal Expansion Valve (TXV) – causes the high pressure refrigerant to rapidly expand, drop in pressure, and cool even further—down to 32-degrees F.
  • Belt – drives the compressor. It can either be the serpentine belt or a separate V-belt.
  • Refrigerant – most commonly R-134a. This fluorocarbon is more environmentally-friendly than Freon, but it still poses global-warming concerns. A new EPA-approved refrigerant, R-1234yf, will be phased in by 2017.

Passenger Compartment

  • Evaporator – is the component that actually “conditions” the air in the passenger compartment. As the refrigerant comes in contact with the warm air in the passenger compartment, the cold, low pressure liquid absorbs a tremendous amount of heat and turns back into a gas. The evaporator is usually located in the foot well.
  • Fan – circulates the cold air throughout the passenger compartment.

Your Car & Oil Changes: The Facts 

For optimal performance and maximal engine life, the experts at Ken Towery's recommend the following: 

  • Follow your vehicle’s maintenance schedule, as well as the instructions in your owner’s manual. Take a look at the maximum number of miles or months that your manufacturer recommends between oil changes and follow this maintenance schedule routinely.
  • Use your vehicle’s oil monitoring system as a guideline.
  • If your vehicle has over 75,000 miles, our experts recommend switching to motor oil formulated to condition aging engine seals. 
  • For majority of vehicles, especially newer cars and trucks, synthetic and synthetic mineral blend oils are ideal for all driving conditions, including stop-and-go driving, frequent car trips, and towing.
