Why maintaining your AC system is very important:
Heating and A/C systems may break eventually with usage, hose pipes may clog and drip if not serviced, causing reduced efficiency 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
Measuring the interior vent air temperature

A fan belt, also known as a drive belt, is a belt connecting your car's engine to the front mounted accessories. The fan belt rotates the water pump and engine fan, which maintains a cool environment for the engine and its components. Sooner or later, your vehicle's fan belts will dry out and crack. When you are ready for a replacement you can count on Prater's Automotive Repair for all your vehicle's repair needs.

COOLANT SYSTEM FLUSH
A car's air conditioning system contains a coolant which transfers excess heat from one part of the engine and finally loses it through the radiator fins. With time, the a/c coolant becomes old and dirty. The old coolant will negatively impact the system's performance. To make sure the system is working effectively, consider having a regular coolant system flush. A coolant flush is basic maintenance for your car's cooling system. Call 731-462-7004 or visit Prater's Automotive Repair in Medina for all your coolant system flush and fill needs. Ensure maximum performance from your vehicle's heating and cooling systems today.
Hoses transfer coolant and antifreeze throughout the engine's cooling system (including the radiator). Sooner or later, your vehicle's hoses will dry out and crack. When you are ready for a replacement you can count on Prater's Automotive Repair for all your vehicle's repair needs.
You not only have to get the hoses replaced with quality ones but you should have the work done by experts. To have the hoses replaced by auto cooling and heating experts - and get your car driving right - visit Prater's Automotive Repair today. The mechanics at Prater's Automotive Repair will thoroughly inspect your car's hoses; replace all worn hoses; and adjust the installed hoses.
Radiators are heat exchangers for cooling your car's internal combustion engine. A radiator cools the engine by circulating an engine coolant through the engine block - it then loses the heat to the atmosphere through radiation. A radiator has a set of tubes through which the engine coolant flows. Fins surround these tubes. When the radiator fails, the excess heat produced by the engine could damage the engine components. To prevent this from happening, have your radiator serviced regularly. To have your radiator needs handled by experts, visit Prater's Automotive Repair today.
