Hi! We hope you're doing well and enjoying the beautiful weather. We are looking forward to summer and all the fun that involves. At least it will mean more time outside in the yard working on our tans. If your air conditioner is blowing cold while driving and then hot when at a stop it could be due to low refrigerant in the system. This can be fixed by having your air conditioning system serviced. Your air conditioning system should be serviced every other year to make sure it's working at it's full capacity. Give us a call and let us take care of you. 541-791-2886 Happy Adventures, Heather
If your air conditioner was just recently serviced and it's still blowing hot, then you have a leak somewhere in your system. On every vehicle that we do an air conditioning service on we use a dye in the oil that is injected into the system to check for leaks. This save you money and us time looking for an issue with your system. Over time hoses and fittings do wear out and need to be replaced along with compressors and condensers. If your air conditioning isn't blowing cold, give us a call and let us take care of you. Happy Adventures, Heather
I know today is black Friday and that itself has become a national holiday, but with all of that please remember to shop at the local stores in your town. They are small businesses trying to provide for there families, they work long hours with very little reward other than to know they are making a difference in the lives of the people who they employ and to there children. We are a small business too and sometimes people forget. Please remember to shop small and support that local family who is doing their best to make a difference. Happy Adventures, Heather
The fact of the matter is your cars a/c system is a sealed unit. The E.P.A. has mandated that automotive a/c should not leak freon/refrigerant into the air. If you are adding to your cars a/c system there is a leak that should be found and repaired. Some leaks are large and very easy to find, while others can be very small and very difficult to find. We have very expensive leak detectors that help us find those small leaks, even with these tools we sometimes can’t find it and we will fill the system with a dye and ask you to come back for a recheck in a week or two. The whole point of an a/c system is to keep you cool on your adventures and not that the breeze doesn't feel great, but with all this smoke in the air I would rather not. Happy Adventures Heather
Over the weekend we took the crew and my Mom on our annual summer trip. Every year we pick a new adventure and this year we decided we would go rock fishing off Newport for the day. We picked the wrong day. The forecast said it would be warm and we expected some waves. What we got was something totally different. Instead we had what Mom referred to as a deadliest catch day. We'll just say it was a little rough and cold. I think Olivia and I have finally thawed out.. Our crew did amazing, even with a few of us who got sick, spirits were still high and we had fun. Don't they say a bad day fishing is better than...…We look forward to our day every year and we have already started to discuss what could be on the docket for next summer. We know that you have plans for the rest of the summer and fall will be here before you know it. Are you ready for your trip? Make sure you are by scheduling a pre-trip inspection, oil change and get your maintenance do ... read more
I'm not ready for summer to be over yet, but as I look at the calendar I am seeing fewer weekends and most of those are full of obligations and things that have to get done before fall. I don't know about you but the older I get the faster the days go and the weeks just fly by. We have already started planning our fall and it's busy too. I am always trying to plan ahead of what needs to be done so it doesn't sneak up on me. Let us take care of you by planning ahead and making you a maintenance schedule for the future so you don't have things take you by surprise too.
It's that time of the year when we all turn on our car air conditioning system on the first 80 degree day, it's not something we've thought about for the last 8 months and we remember it was cold the last time we used it and now it's not. No one wants to be in a hot car with no air conditioning or running around with the windows down with all the pollen in the air. It could be as simple as the refrigerant in your air conditioning system is low and it just needs a recharge, or you could have a component that went out sometime over the winter. The easiest way to know what happened is to schedule an appointment to have your air conditioning system tested. One other detail that most people don't realize is that the air conditioning compressor also turns off and on all winter when you're using your defroster, so it really works all year long.
