Heat & AC

heat and acYour car’s heating and AC systems are far more important than you might think. A failing air conditioner can put strain on your engine and a heating system that isn’t working properly can cause your car’s engine to overheat. HRS AutoCare can help you to keep your heat & AC systems working properly so that you can be comfortable and safe in your car.

How Does Your Car’s Heater Work?

Your car’s heater has two big jobs: It helps to keep the engine cooler and it keeps the passenger cabin comfortable. The heating system has several main components, including:

  • Heater core
  • Heater hoses
  • Blower motor
  • Heater control valve
  • HVAC control panel

If failures happen in any of these pieces, then your car’s heating system isn’t going to work the way that it’s supposed to work. That means that you might not be as comfortable as you want to be, but worse it can also mean that you end up with a costly engine repair if you ignore heater issues.

Seven Parts to Your Car’s AC System

Just like your car’s heater system, the AC system is composed of multiple parts. It also helps to keep you and your passengers as comfortable as possible. The AC system is also made up of multiple parts that can all run into trouble.

  • HVAC control panel
  • Condenser
  • Compressor
  • Accumulator
  • Expansion valve
  • Evaporator
  • Hoses
  • Blower motor

Another crucial part is the refrigerant that fills the AC system. If there’s a leak anywhere in the system, the AC won’t work properly. During the hottest parts of the year, this can actually get dangerous, especially if you’re stuck in traffic.
