Spring is coming, and with it comes warmer weather. Before we know it, auto air conditioning will be in use all over the East Bay, including Walnut Creek. If you own a Honda vehicle, now is the time to have the a/c system checked out and to have air conditioning refrigerant refill.
In Walnut Creek hot summers are not a surprise, so making sure the ac system works correctly is a good idea. It’s also good to have it checked before the hot summer days – to avoid long lines, and potential supply chains issues with refrigerant availability. Thus we recommend ac check every spring, so your Honda is ready for the summer.
While there are a variety of issues that could impact your Honda’s ac system, low coolant levels will definitely require a visits to a “mechanic near me”. When the ac system is blowing cool air, but not as cold as you would expect, chances are that an a/c refill is in order.
California has stringent auto ac refill rules, including a/c system leak testing requirement, to ensure that we do not refill the system only to have it vent the refrigerant into the atmosphere we all breathe.
So first thing we will do is to inspect the system for leaks. If no leaks are found, we can refill the refrigerant, then test the system at various warm/cold settings to make sure it behaves per manufacturer specifications.
Our nationally ASE certified technicians can get your Honda ac system tested and, assuming no leaks, refilled the same day. In addition to the ac system refill we will also perform a complimentary digital vehicle inspection, so you are up-to-date on the overall condition of your Honda.
So try your Honda’s ac and heating system, and if you notice anything not quite right, call Diablo Auto Specialists and we will be happy to answer your questions, and to make an appointment for further ac system testing, if necessary. We also offer convenient online appointments on our website.
