Heating and A/C systems may break eventually with usage, hose pipes may clog and drip if not serviced, causing reduced efficiency of heating and cooling capabilities. Regular maintenance will keep your AC system operating at peak performance!

Indications your A/C system may be having issues:

  • If your air conditioning blows only slightly cooler air compared to the exterior air
  • Air that blows in smells damp, musty, or like mildew and mold
  • Your cabin does not warm up in cold weather, or is just a little warmer than outside
  • The defroster takes longer than typical to operate, or does not operate
  • Your heater or A/C only functions when driving, not when idling, or quits blowing when the car is stationary
  • Your heating system blows cold air, or the air conditioning blows warm air
  • Low airflow even at the highest fan setting

A comprehensive evaluation of heating and A/C system includes:
  • Examining the internal controls and blower
  • Checking radiator coolant operating temperature, hoses, pressure radiator cap and thermostat
  • Inspecting the compressor belt
  • Inspecting system and seals for leaks or various other damages
  • A cooling system pressure test
  • Verifying the A/C pressure meets manufacturer specifications

A fan belt (also commonly referred to as a drive belt) is a belt that connects your vehicle's engine to an assortment of accessories. The belt spins the water pump and engine fan, which help maintain a cool environment for the engine and its components. Through normal wear, your vehicle's fan belt may deteriorate and become worn and cracked. A-1 Auto Center can inspect your belts so you can be assured a belt will not break unexpectedly.

A-1 Auto Center can adjust existing belts or replace your worn belts with quality parts.


Radiators help to control the operating temperature of your engine. They cool your vehicle's engine by circulating an engine coolant throughout the engine, then cooling the heated coolant in the radiator. A radiator has a set of tubes through which the engine coolant flows. Metal fins surround these tubes. When the radiator fails, the excess heat produced by the engine is not properly controlled and engine components can be damaged. To prevent this from happening, have A-1 Auto Center service your radiator as required. Visit A-1 Auto Center LLC today.
