To Winterize or Not To Winterize? That Is The Question.

November is officially here, which means winter is just around the corner. Before we are bombarded with the holidays, it is important to set aside some of your time to get your vehicle ready for winter. If you are unsure about whether or not your vehicle needs to be winterized, we are here to break it down.  If you don’t winterize your vehicle, you can expect the winter to be much harsher for you and your car, even for us Californians.

How To Keep Your Car’s A/C Easy Breezy

Your car’s A/C has one job: to keep you cool and comfortable. However, in the middle of summer is Sacramento, this is quite the task. You can help your vehicle’s air conditioning system out by following these quick tips. You will reap the benefits, as you relax in your perfectly temperate vehicle. Here is how to keep your car’s A/C easy and breezy:  Your A/C can only reduce the temperature in your car by 40 degrees on average. If you park in the shade, the interior temperature of your vehicle will start out much cooler.  Set your A/C to recirculation. On recirculation, your A/C is pulling air from inside your cabin, instead of outside, where the temperatures are probably boiling.  Change your air filters as needed. Your cabin air filters removes the dirt and dust from any air that comes out of your vents. When a filter is old, the dirt has accumulated, and it will be harder for that cool air to pass through.  Don’t ignore leaks! Leaks spe ... read more
