How to Get the Best Function Out of Your Vehicle’s Air Conditioner in Duluth, GA


Summer has arrived and there has never been a better time to ensure you are getting the best functionality out of your vehicle’s air conditioning system. Being sure to properly maintain your air conditioner helps you to make your car cool faster while burning less fuel. Acura Carland wants to help you keep your car running at its best as you drive into the warm summer months.


Some tips to get the most out of your air conditioning system include:


  1. Car air conditioning works best when your driving. This is due to the fact that, the faster the engine turns, the faster the air conditioning compressor runs, which lets the system cool more effectively. Pre-cooling your vehicle wastes your time and gas by letting your vehicle run before you start driving. For more rapid cooling, crank up the fan and open the rear windows for 10-20 seconds.

  2. Set your air conditioning system at its lowest temperature and adjust the fan to make the vehicle’s air conditioning more efficient. This will dry out the air in your vehicle less and can save you fuel. Setting the temperature higher forces your system to reheat the air which requires more effort and burns more fuel.

  3. If there are passengers in your back seat, turning off your recirculation mode helps with cooling the entire car. Recirculation mode takes air from the front of the cabin and pulls it back through the system. While this keeps front passengers cool, the air in the back of the vehicle gets hot and stale.

  4. Newer vehicles are often equipped with an auto start/stop system. While this feature saves fuel, it can also keep the car air conditioning compressor from running when it shuts your engine off. In hot summer weather, you can begin noticing the lack of cool air quickly, especially in heavy traffic or at long stoplights. Tuning off this feature can help to cool your vehicle at its best.

  5. Check your cabin air filter to ensure it is clean. A dirty air filter prevents optimal airflow. If you see a lot of dirt accumulating on it, it’s time to change the filter to ensure your vehicle is cooling properly.
