Semi-Truck A/C Tune Up Near You
A functioning air conditioning system is crucial when you are logging lots of miles on your semi-truck during the warmer months. Driving a semi-truck without a working A/C system can be unbearable during the summer.
Preventative maintenance on your truck’s air conditioning system is key to staying cool. That is why we are rolling out a new service at all our locations: the A/C tune-up. We are adding this service to further establish us as your one-stop shop for all your truck’s preventative maintenance needs.
Your truck’s air conditioner functions to keep you cool as well as purify the air that circulates in your cab. Newer trucks often integrate the air conditioning with ventilation and heating systems. Caring for these systems within a semi-truck requires specific knowledge.
Air conditioning is one of the more expensive elements of your truck. Regardless of how new or complex your truck is, your air conditioning system requires preventative maintenance. Your truck may lose up to 10% of its refrigerant every year. Without adequate refrigerant levels, you may experience increased fuel consumption and decreased performance. Regular preventative maintenance can save you money in the long run by catching problems early before they turn into bigger, more expensive problems.

Why Do I Need an A/C Tune-Up?
Catching leaks in your system will save you the cost of replacing leaked refrigerant. This special liquid is somewhat expensive, especially if you have to refill your entire system. When all of your refrigerant has leaked, dirt and other grime can take its place, which can cause additional problems.
Your truck’s air conditioning system can develop clogs, which will increase the pressure. This extra pressure can speed up leaks and cause your compressor to work harder in order to keep your A/C system functioning. Without a mechanical intervention, your A/C system may stop working entirely, and you will have to pay to replace it if you want to stay cool during the summer months.
Signs Your Air Conditioning Is Not Functioning Properly
There are several things to look out for that indicate that your A/C may need your attention. If your air conditioner is blowing air that is only slightly cool or even warm, there is likely a problem with the system. Watch out for musty mildew smells, which typically indicate a problem. Air conditioning that only functions when driving, not idling, can signal A/C trouble. Additionally, the defroster may take longer to function or does not work at all. Bring your truck into a LubeZone Truck Lube Center today if your A/C system is exhibiting any of these signs.
